All IBS's MBA graduates are distinguished by their solid analytical skills and broad global perspectives, as well as by their passion to apply advanced learning to specific challenges and opportunities. MBA graduates have gone on to diverse positions and companies, ranging from financial institutions and consulting firms to startups and family businesses.
Positions after Graduation
The first position after graduation depends, in part, on the experience of a student before IBS. With three or more years of related work experience and a good academic record at IBS, our graduates are attractive candidates for "associate" positions in consulting companies and investment banks. MBAs typically receive starting salaries in the $65,000 - $100,000 range, depending on experience.
IBS alumni generally rise rapidly in their companies. Our graduates who entered business careers over the past decade now occupy positions such as managing director of municipal finance in a major investment bank, partner for emerging markets in an investment bank, and partner in a management consulting firm.
Graduates have accepted positions in companies and organizations such as Smith Barney, BNP Paribas, Standard & Poors, United Airlines, UBS Warburg, A.T. Kearney, Lycos, and The World Bank. One-half work outside the United States, in countries as diverse as Germany, Kazakhstan, Japan, and the UK.
