I think you have to divide people with MBAs into two groups.It is known that MBAs enjoy notably bigger salaries than non-MBAs.However, the market has adjusted and as we all know, higher prices push for higher supply, and that is just what has happened.Thus the premium for MBAs starting now has come down considerably, so you shouldn't compare the salaries of people who've been working, with what you might expect to earn.Also employers have started getting picky about what specialisation you should have.Another factor is that there are a lot of MBA programmes of wildly different quality, and employers find it hard to guess which are good or relevant. Such uncertainty of course means they are reluctant to pay much more for them. A typical method is the general perceived quality of the institution, which is better than nothing. However since MBA programmes can make a lot of money, the correlation between the quality of the institution and the quality of the MBA school is often poor and occasionally very negative.
