 Corporate MBA

In Partnership with the McLean
County Chamber of Commerce


Starting February 5, 2010
Did you know …

• There are over 1,500 graduate business
     programs in the United States and
     well over 3,500 worldwide.

• These programs collectively award a
     graduate business degree (like MBA)
     to more than 150,000 professionals
     annually.
         But Why? … Why MBA?
   Because MBA delivers value to you.
According to the Graduate Management Admissions
    Council, MBA provides you with …
   An opportunity to improve personally
   Desired credentials
   An increase in career options
   Development of management knowledge and
    technical skills
   Preparations to get a good job and opportunity for
    quicker advancement
   An increase in earning power
              Value of an MBA degree in $$$*
•   During the early stage of their job career the average earnings
    gap between those with MBAs and those with bachelor’s degrees is
    over $25,000 per year.

•   During their prime earning years, between the ages of 45 and 50,
    those with MBAs earn roughly twice the amount earned by their
    counterparts with bachelor’s degrees.

•   The ROI (return on investment) for MBA degree is estimated to
    be 18%-22% which is higher than the average return on Dow Jones
    during the last two decades.

•   For a two-year MBA the payback period is about 3.6 years meaning
    that three and a half years after your MBA, you will be better off even
    taking into account the direct investment and the salary foregone.

•   “Getting an MBA today is like receiving a tax-free, cash award of
    more than $600,000.”
