It's no secret that those who earned an MBA degree command a higher salary in the market. This is partly true because not everyone with an MBA degree gets the same amount of compensation. There are many factors that affect this but the college where the student went to is one of the main factors. Here are the top five MBA programs in marketing.


The U.S. News and World Report ranks the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University as fourth in the list of the Best Business Schools in America. However, it comes first when it comes to the earning power of its graduates. Those who earned their marketing MBA at Stanford commands an annual basic salary of $140,553 with 62.8 percent of its graduates employed upon graduation.


Although the Business School at Harvard University comes first in the Best Business Schools ranking, it only comes in second when it comes to the earning power of its graduates. According to U.S. News, MBA grads in marketing from Harvard earn $134,071 annual salary on average with 79.3 percent of its graduates finding employment. Harvard MBA students have the privilege of enrolling in a joint degree programs with the Harvard Medical School, Law School, Dental Medicine, and the Kennedy School of Government.
