Our two-year students have obtained internships with the same types of employers, often leading to an offer of permanent employment after the internship ends.

In broad terms, students with prior work experience are compensated in terms comparable to an MBA graduate; students without prior experience are compensated somewhere in between an undergraduate and an MBA graduate (who often have a few years of work experience prior to completing their degree). The average first year starting salary of our June 2008 graduates was $140,000. These numbers include only salary and guaranteed bonus. In addition, most people receive an additional bonus which is determined based on their performance and that of their group at the end of the year. This additional amount often represents 10 to 25 percent of the base salary for rookies (and often more for those with prior work experience) and is not included in the figures above.


"The breadth of courses offered was a key highlight of the program. With the classes I took, I was able to experience what it was like to be both a PhD student and an MBA student."

-- Flora Chao Lutz, MFin '04; Financial Officer, International Finance Corporation of The World Bank
