According to this article at Bloomberg.com, at five of the top business schools in the country — Duke, Dartmouth, Michigan, Cornell and the University of Chicago — more than 40 percent of students borrowed more than $100,000 to finance their MBA. The median starting salary for a graduate of those schools is $123,000.
Meanwhile, several schools which would generally be considered on a lower tier, including the University of Connecticut and Arizona State, reported no students with six-figure debt, and a median starting salary of $100,000.
There’s a lesson here somewhere.
