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.

You have the answer in your question itself. You are comparing salaries of top 10-12 ranked colleges with slightly lower ranked colleges. There is obviously going to vary a bit.
Also if your findings are accurate, 10-15k $$ annually is not a huge disparity. Thats roughly $1000 a month.

Yeah exactly. It's not that big a difference.

Besides, probably for some roles,it may even remain same

vedang09 That is not sufficient. The rankings of Darden and Ross are higher than or equivalent to some of the $130,000 schools like Carnegie Mellon, Duke, UCLA. UCLA can be given a pass because it's based on the West coast. So, we have yet to arrive at a clear answer.

I think Souvik has given you a detailed answer in the same question for Ross. So that should cover your doubt to much extent.
And to again emphasize on the difference of $$ 10k, I don't think that's actually a big disparity as such when we are discussing $100k+ salaries.
