The average pay including signing bonus of a new MBA graduate rose to $106,000. A nice little chunk of change. This is a 13 percent raise from last year. Consulting firms and investment banks pay the best of the companies hiring. They also were the ones cutting back until the last few years. The average signing bonus is $40,000 from these two sectors. You’d be silly not to get your MBA right now. You could pay for your schooling in two years. Chicks dig the rich guys
