Hi everyone, I spent a while looking at each top school's Employment Report. I am most interested in Tech (likely product management) so I compared average salary numbers for each school. Stanford is the only school with an average tech salary of \$135,000. All of the following schools have a median salary in Tech of exactly \$130,000:
- Harvard
- Wharton
- Booth
- Kellogg
- MIT
- Duke
- UCLA
- Berkeley
- Yale
- Dartmouth
- Carnegie Mellon

Here's the next tier down:
- Ross (\$122,650)
- Darden (\$122,615)
- Cornell (\$122,037)
- NYU Stern (\$121,500)

What's the deal with this disparity? It seems that Tech is massively undervaluing Darden, Ross, Cornell, NYU. Why? What's going on here? Would love to hear everyone's thoughts.

FYI the Cornell Tech MBA program's 2019 salary outcomes = \$135k base + \$40k signing bonus. This is on par with 2019 salary outcomes for HBS, MIT Sloan, Columbia, and Wharton, behind Stanford/Haas, and ahead of Booth and Kellogg.

See: https://tech.cornell.edu/career-managem ... -programs/

Not sure if they published outcomes for the 2Y program yet.
