MBA is a sought-after graduate program because of its demand even in slump times like in 2008. Here is a good data from MINT – A WSJ publication Indian site.
If you are MBA graduate or an a student deciding to join B-schools in India, this analysis gives some idea of what schools to join based on the salaries or placements or the industry wise.
Here are my few observations :
> Except IIM-A, The highest Indian salaries rose for all B-Schools meaning MBA grads got paid highest record salaries in year 2008.
> The highest salary of Indian 70 laks and US- $360K is paid to IIM-A graduate
> The average salaries in all top Indian B-Schools were around 17 laks where as US is around $80K
Placements in US companies
> One in four students placed at overseas
> IIM Bangalore tops the list with 52% placements overseas.
Note : The data is from May 2008. I’m looking forward to see what happened to MBA placements data when the financial meltdown happened around July/August of 2008.
