August Graduates See Average Salary Increase of $33,000 With Degree

The Rollins MBA summer 2011 graduating class for the Professional and Saturday MBA programs have achieved an impressive employment rate despite the continued high unemployment numbers in Florida. The commencement ceremony took place in early August, and graduates were surveyed that day on current positions and salaries. The results showed impressive employment numbers with 99 percent of the cohorts working and with an average salary increase of over $33,000.

“Our 2011 summer graduating class shows how investing in education can have a direct impact on employment options and success,” said Craig McAllaster, dean at Rollins MBA. “The benefit of earning an MBA is apparent with the increase in salaries we’ve seen from our students. We are committed to helping our students succeed while they pursue their MBA and throughout their careers.”

With an impressive 100 percent graduation rate for the Saturday MBA program and 99 percent for the Professional MBA program, the latest Rollins MBA class graduated with a superior rate of completion compared to other programs. The school attributes its graduation success to its team-structured learning environment, which includes student groups and cohorts that foster learning and powerful life-long connections.
