Primary Source of Offer

Data is collected according to CSEA reporting standards. Data is for the Full-time MBA Class of 2019. 97% of job-accepting graduates supplied salary information. The Starting Bonus average is based on the number of people receiving a bonus. Not all job-accepting graduates received a bonus. Some 2019 graduates received additional perks, including stock, relocation allowances, transportation allowances, performance bonus structures and other incentives which are not reflected in the data. Total Compensation is calculated only using base salary and starting bonus figures for each job-accepting that supplied salary data. Note that CSEA removed the Guaranteed Bonus reporting component in its latest update of the reporting standards.
