- Local Business Owner taking different route than traditional MBA
When Eliza Walton bought Martin’s Feed and Fertilizer, her father’s Coburn feed mill, four years ago, she was doing a bit of everything. She helped make the animal feed and delivered it across the county. When a salesperson left, she took over, meeting with customers on the road. Wearing the janitor’s hat was not beneath her. She felt like a student all over again. Being in the thick of daily tasks was a learning experience, but for the young business owner, it kept her from thinking bigger.
- 10 MBA Programs where New Grads make more than they owe.
The average starting salary among MBA graduates of the program who were employed within three months of graduation was $86,644. That’s more than 12 times the average amount of student debt acquired by the school’s MBA recipients who borrowed: $7,132, excluding college debt.
- Many MBAs have a high career turnaround
Jamie Mathews-Mead, senior director of graduate career management at the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University in Columbus, said the MBA areas of focus that have the best career turnaround are those that best reflect a candidate’s passions and interests. “It’s also best if their MBA program can be leveraged up against their pre-MBA studies,” Mathews-Mead said. “There are also MBA students that want to change and study something different. Either way, the most successful are those who are following their most personal passion to drive that success.”
