Great spreadsheet... except it doesn't account for the fact that some people earn bonuses in their pre-MBA jobs.

Can't you just add that to salary and enter that final amount in the salary section :) ?

is the starting salary the "whole package" or just the total pay? 120k for default is pretty generous as an average isn't it? just kinda curious about it.

Depends on the job role 120K is probably a little on the "higher" end but it's normal if you go banking or consulting. Great tool +1

I'm looking at the "Three Stage NPV" tab.... shouldn't this model only assume approx. 22 months out of work for a full time program? It is currently assuming 2.5 years without work (i.e. 36 months) which I think is excessive unless I'm missing something. This changes the break even of my analysis from 6 years to 4 years.

It makes more sense to do an MBA for folks in US who are on such high packages (>100 K). An year's salary is all that you forgo for MBA.
For international students, the loan amount + interest rate + economic situation (possibility of finding a job with work visa) make it a much tougher decision to make. Still, I'd say if you have been feeling that inclination to go for an MBA since last few months or years, then it may be better to get it done, and you need to project yourself few years ahead and compare your career with / without the MBA.

Good spreadsheet - i can imagine the effort which must have gone into creating it.

Just a few pointers ...

funding mba via own savings vs bank/ federal loans will tilt the scales significantly. some might say its not prudent to wipe out a large chunk of personal savings, but i believe if you can afford to do it, it kind of relieves the pressure of finding a high paying job at the end of the program.

secondly, it might be valuable to include a small "bump up" in the salaries post MBA depending on the school strength/ alumni strength. i have come across many alums who continue to have mouth watering growths in their salaries 5 - 6 years after graduation ...
