Preliminary research has so far found that top ranked MBA programs can accelerate an individual\u0027s career by more than 60%, with lower ranked programs also performing well. Conducted by Reputation.com, which specializes in online reputation products and services, the research is still in an early form and is yet to be released. However, as Michael Fertik, the company\u0027s CEO explained to TopMBA.com, one of the findings is that \u0022an MBA is clearly a good economic decision.\u0022 \u0022We\u0027ve analysed a lot of what you would consider social profiles or online resumes and collected a huge amount of data,\u0022 Fertik explains. \u0022We decided to start publishing a lot of our findings, and one of the findings was that an MBA is very powerful.\u0022Accelerating Your MBA CareerThough slightly vague do to the preliminary status of the research, Fertik is happy to share a few of the findings of his company\u0027s research in a recent blog post, an excerpt of which is here: In terms of career progression, it is estimated that the average MBA holder sees her career accelerate more than 30 percent faster than someone without an MBA.Graduates of top MBA programs see over twice this impact, according to reputation.com estimates.Even graduates of lower rated MBA programs do well, progressing almost 20 percent faster than their peers without an MBA.Though Fertik is clear to point out that the research is based on the company\u0027s conclusions around salary and career progression, rather than an individuals happiness, the results are promising for many an MBA applicant. TopMBA.com will of course follow up on this story when the research is officially released. View the world\u0027s top MBA programs \u0026gt;
