Studying while you work pays off

Studying
for an MBA while working full time can pay dividends, according to research.

A
typical London Business School graduate who started the programme in 1996 had
increased their salary by 136 per cent over the five years.

The
research, carried out by the Financial Times as part of its annual ranking of
executive MBA programmes EMBA2001, also shows that 10 of the top 11 MBA schools
were in or drew their students from just four cities – New York, London,
Chicago and Madrid. London Business School, the top European school, was in
third.

Surprisingly,
two other London business schools – City University and Imperial College – rank
10 and 11 because of the steep increases in salary of their alumni.

The
FT ranked the top 50 EMBA programmes according to 16 criteria, including
improved salaries and international content of the course.
