World class faculty research, alumni career impact
Recognition for Foster’s world class faculty research, along with Executive MBA alumni career success made the greatest impact on The Financial Times ranking, including alumni salaries and salary increases. Graduates of the Foster EMBA Program reported reaching their goal of increasing earnings, with an average salary of $192,236 and an average pay raise of more than 32% since graduation.
Most alumni advanced in large firms and more than 60% of graduates reported attaining a director/VP, department head or executive/senior manager title within three years of graduation.
Graduates also valued the high-level professional network they developed in the EMBA Program, where the average student brings 14 years of professional experience and 11 years in leadership. A quarter of students already hold an advanced degree. More than 2,000 graduates from 35 years of the Foster Executive MBA Program constitute an influential alumni network with connections to more than 54,000 Foster alumni.
