And more than 40 percent of Foster graduates landed jobs in the fast-growing technology industry, where Foster and Berkeley were the top two schools for placement. More than 20 percent of Foster MBA graduates also secured positions in the high-demand consulting sector.

Graduates earned an average compensation of $129,828 across all industries and carried very low debt, earning Foster recognition by U.S. News as the Best Bang for the Buck.
