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.

Hey there, this is not exactly a disparity. Stern is more of a Finance School than a Tech school. Also, the finance salaries tend to be higher.

I hope that answers your question for Stern.

You have posted the same question in multiple forums.... not sure it is necessary to double-post the same thing over and over again?
