Given our small size, we have few MBA graduates annually who seek and secure employment. The following chart* identifies the median salary for our MBA graduates in comparison to other U.S.-based AACSB accredited institutions who completed the BSQ employment survey and who had 10 or fewer full-time MBA graduates accept employment. The Drucker School is identified by the red bar.
