Other than a promotion with increased responsibility, another indicator of a positive career outcome is an increase in pay. Again, we asked alums to report salary increases that they received as a direct result of their MBA degree. Carnegie Mellon led all schools, with nearly nine out of ten grads (exactly 88%) reporting a pay hike. The median score for the schools was 52.7%. At the bottom on this measure were the online MBA alums of the University of Southern Illinois where only 11% of grads reported a salary rise.
