92 percent of corporate recruiters are expected to hire new Master of Business Administration graduates in 2022, and the majority believe there will be a rise in demand for MBA grads in the next five years, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) 2022 Corporate Recruiters Survey.
An MBA is attractive to top employers because of the specialized skills students build, the broad business knowledge they gain and the innovative thinking expertise they cultivate.
There are a wide assortment of jobs for MBA graduates. According to the same GMAC survey, the median Master of Business Administration salary in the United States in 2021 was $115,000, though this amount varies.
Typical MBA careers and their average salaries include:
|Business operations manager||$97,970|
|Human resources manager||$126,230|
|Information technology (IT) manager||$159,010|
|Medical and health services manager||$101,340|

When considering what jobs you can get with an MBA, you might also examine which positions have large projected growth, low unemployment rate, minimal stress levels and good work-life balance. According to the U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Business Jobs for 2023, medical and health services managers took the top spot and financial managers ranked second for these reasons.
