For those of you who got your MBA, did you see a salary jump after you received it? Were there other benefits that people don’t really think about that should be considered? And lastly, do you think an MBA is necessary to eventually land a VP level position?

Absolutely not, there wasn’t a salary jump at all because they always use the budget as an excuse! Everyone at the VP level has their bachelors at minimum.

i did not! i felt like it was a good safety net for interviews but didn’t reflect in salary. I also worked in ad agencies / entertainment so it might just not reflect in these industries

Nope, the best thing my MBA got me was I’m able to Adjunct at a local university at night for some extra money. But no company I’ve worked at has cared about having an advanced degree.

No salary bump (yet).
I just got mine from a pretty good school. I asked for a salary bump and made my case based on my mba and was denied because it “wasn’t enough” to justify an increase. But I was told that the company would work to fully utilize my skill set gained from my own investment. My comp prob won’t change until next year and that’s a BIG maybe.
Which is why I’m job hunting of course! I’ve learned a lot of highly valuable skills through my program, so no regrets and I use everything that I’ve learned and I’m much better off for it.
Just have to find a place that will recognize that as well.

Thank you! I was wondering if a job switch may be necessary to be recognized

Hi is there a solid resource for comp benchmarks? I’m in a new role and company is struggling to find benchmarks for my comp so it’s in my interest to help them.

Or honestly any resource that shows ranges of comp for roles of varying seniority across functions? Struggling on indeed or LinkedIn or elsewhere. My function can be tagged as product strategy or innovation fwiw. 🙏 thanks!
