MBA Employment Statistics

Interpreting employment data

Employment data for the UW Foster School of Business Full-time MBA Program is compiled from responses of graduates who share their employment information with MBA Career Management. We strongly urge this data be used judiciously. The median and ranges reported should be interpreted as only one source of information when making a decision regarding the appropriateness of an offer. Market conditions strongly influence salary levels as well as the number of offers extended by an organization. The amount of a salary offer tends to be influenced by a number of factors:
