The time and cost associated with an MBA degree can seem like a steep investment when you begin researching graduate programs. Fortunately, the return on investment for the graduate degrees seems to be steadily increasing according to the Financial Times. "On average, a person graduating with an MBA can expect a 119% increase in salary within three years. Salaries have since picked up to reach an average of $142,000 in 2017, up 12 percent on 2014, and early data analysis from the 2018 ranking indicate that salaries are still increasing." Every year up to 2014, MBA graduates always at least doubled their salaries within three years of completing their degree.

The initial investment is actually much smaller than average for a substantial return within 3 years of graduation.
