Babson MBA graduates earn an average early career salary of $91,500 and an average midcareer salary of $137,900, according to PayScale Inc.

Among graduate business schools in New England, Babson ranks No. 4, behind Harvard, MIT, and Yale, and is the only school among those with a part-time MBA program. Among graduate business schools in the United States, Babson’s MBA program ranks No. 27.

“The relationship between college tuition, what a student chooses to study while in school, and becoming a wage earner after graduation has become clear,” said Katie Bardaro, lead economist at PayScale. “The PayScale College Salary Report focuses on salary because, simply, it's PayScale's expertise, and data on post-graduate earnings is hard to come by elsewhere. We want to empower students with information and set them up for success in regards to their future careers and financial health.”
