  • Executive MBA - Using NPV to Calculate ROI
    the starting salaries for that role based upon location industry and function Your local recruiters can offer compensation benchmark brochures This will represent your starting salary upon graduating with your MBA The second step is to determine the percentage of increase you could receive per year The average salary increase reported by alumni to ranking publications includes annual merit increases bonuses stock options and promotion increases If we assume a post MBA starting salary of 100 000 with an average 12 increase per year after five years the salary would be 158 000 Each year the salary needs to reflect the current value of the money so it is discounted using a factor such as cost of living index Assuming a 5 discount rate the total revenue stream over the post MBA five years is almost 669 000 If you did not earn an MBA and were employed you would have continued in the same level of position with fewer opportunities for higher level positions with their commensurate level of compensation Assuming a pre MBA salary of 65 000 with average annual increases of 4 during the same years as the post MBA salary adjusted for the 5 discount rate you would have earned 400 000 Netting post MBA salary 669 000 with pre MBA salary 400 000 you gain 269 000 Two factors offsetting this gain are forgone salary and net tuition While attending a two year full time program chances are you will not be employed full time and so the loss of that salary is a cost of your investment in your future Your pre MBA salary of 65 000 for the first year plus projected second year salary calculated using the average annual increase of 4 and applying the NPV discount rate of 5 results in forgone salary of 139 000 Tuition costs are calculated using the cost of your program applying the NPV discount rate If you need to borrow money to pay for tuition any loan interest should be added to tuition costs Offsetting the cost of tuition are scholarships employer reimbursements or gifts Assume the cost of tuition plus interest less scholarships or other monies received nets to 50 000 for your program Forgone salary 139 000 and net tuition 50 000 are the total costs 189 000 offsetting your net salary increase of 269 000 for a five year MBA gain of 80 000 or a 30 improvement in your personal revenue stream Using this very conservative projection payback is 4 3 years In Forbes 2011 Best of Business Schools survey 86 reported exceeding this 30 gain and 91 took less than 4 3 years to reach the break even point The median five year post MBA salary was 2 5 times greater than pre MBA salary with some as high as 3 5 times greater If you were fully employed during your Executive MBA program like students are in the Temple University Executive MBA in Singapore the forgone salary would not
