MBA Pay: Retail

Forget dying malls. Retail is eCommerce, pop ups, automated self-service, flexible payment systems, and customized product offerings. By the numbers, IESE Business School boasts the largest footprint. 29 IESE grads joined the field, a 10.7% share of the class. Yale SOM and the Wharton School placed 17 and 15 students into the file respectively. At the same time, Wharton School and Yale SOM snapped up the highest paychecks in the industry at $147,500 and $144,000 respectively (much higher than IESE, which ranks 22nd at $92,559).
