In the previous article, Will a Business Degree – MBA be right for you?, it’s true that to get more money, having an MBA degree from top schools will help you get there.
Also, an MBA from Ivy league schools adds more value to the degree.
The term "Ivy League" represents group of 8 schools which are know for academic excellence, very selective in admissions, and reputation. Attending Ivy League schools means prestige.
It opens up lots of doors filled with opportunities. Getting an MBA from an Ivy League School is already very prestigious in itself.
Only 6 among Ivy League Schools offer MBA programs.
Two Ivy League universities, Brown University and Princeton University, do not have business schools.
