The True Value of YOUR MBA

I have put together what I think is a comprehensive MBA return on investment (ROI) tool/model (more specifically, I used net present value, NPV). It looks at the MBA and non-MBA career paths and identifies not only when you'll "breakeven" but also how your compensation will look over an extended period of time.
