Few words are heard as often in Walton as “value.” It often seems like one of those
words you just cannot escape. You may hear about it with regard to Walton’s EPIC values, the Blockchain Center of Excellence’s research on the “Internet of Value,” the value-added services that the Supply Chain Management Research Center provides, or in everyday classroom discussions.
Thanks to a recent story in the Wall Street Journal about MBA programs, one thing I’ve started to hear more about is the value of an MBA. For several years running, almost all of the attention in the room was given to critics questioning whether or when MBA students get a return on their investment. A recent WSJ study in complicates some of these narratives. According to its analysis of federal student loan data for 600 MBA programs, graduates from 98% of those programs “typically make more money two years out of school than they had borrowed.”
So, how does the MBA Program at the Walton College rate in this discussion of value? Among the best. The debt-to-income ratio for the Walton College MBA program is 0.26!. The graph below, taken from the WSJ article, shows the debt-to-income ratio for the MBA programs in their study. Do you see that blue dot on the far left? That’s us.
Even more impressive is the fact that the WSJ study doesn’t adjust for cost of living, which would make our already impressive advantage even greater!
