Just a degree is never enough. We're in a world where everything around us is in such a rush that if we don't update ourselves accordingly then rise in salaries is something we cannot expect. We have to make each day a better version for ourselves with better personality, communication skills and new things which are required for our job.

My point of view. I'm also MBA qualified even I have many degrees but it's not enough to acquire a good salary package. If you want to sustain your salary for a long time you need to improve your personality, talking accent, communication skills, personal development that's all should have within you, therefore, you can achieve everything.

So, guys, you should do hard work for your personal achievements.

First of all if you are working in the corporate sector you always have to show your presence through your work. Only on the basis of your work you will be promoted and appreciated.

In todays working environment, organisation search for the candidates who have knowledge skills and working attitude. If you are working with all your efforts and are completely indulged in your work, no such question will exist then. So, sustainability in your salary in long run depends upon handwork, efficiency, creating and your skills.

Hello friends,

Salary does not depend on the degree you hold. Even if you hold many degrees but do not update yourself time to time. It' s completely irrelevant. Because in today dynamic and competitive environment the organisations search the candidates who have the passion to do something with his KSA i.e. knowledge, skills and attitude. The rising in the salary also depends on the return you are providing to the organisation by your work.

At last but not least I want to say we should work like we are working in our organisation. And focus on the output rather than on completion of time. Then there will be no question to rise in salary. Whether MBA or any degree holder.

Thank you.

According to my point of view, salary of an individual always depends upon the quality of his work, his hard work, his passion and his contribution towards the success of any company. Just holding one degree won't enhance his salary but if he has knowledge, skills and dedication towards the work along with the degree then he will always be paid off for his work.

We cannot predict the rise in salaries will sustain or not, but no doubt it can be said that the one who is capable and shows up regular hard work is sustainable in this run.

Hello Friends,

Rise in MBA salaries will definitely not sustainable in the Long run. If we see MBA selected for the companies and what companies want? SKILLS, COMPATIBILITY, KNOWLEDGE and most important to have a LEARNING Attitude. This can be achieved by the experience. MBA degree does not guarantee the person to the path of SUCCESS. The person should have the zeal to do the work and its the hard-work which leads the person deserves the higher salary.

But on the other front, if we see why most of the experienced persons go for the MBA? Because they want to excel more in the specialised field and they don't want limited knowledge and also sometimes, People thought that they would be easily promoted and get higher salary packages.

Otherwise, As I said earlier, Higher Package can be achieved on the basis of your performance, on your hardwork and passion.

Friends, I think its not compulsory that if you have an MBA degree then you can earn good salary than other having an MBA degree is not enough but you have also some skills, knowledge and attitude. MBA means you can develop your ability of communication and leadership skills.

If you enhance and develop this kind of skills than definitely wherever you work than firm must be gain profit and also hike your salary.

Hello Friends,

Rise in MBA salaries fully depends on the revenue of any firm. There use to be a committee in any firm which decides on these things that whether the salaries of MBAs under that company should be increased or not. Look if you are studying regularly for your exam, then what you expect? You expect a good mark in all subjects and finally a good percentage in that exam. And if you are not studying regularly then what you expect? Hey God please bless me. Please provide me that much marks so that I can pass the exam. There is a huge difference between both of these thinkings. The same thing applies on the company management. How an MBA degree holding person can get good salary in any company if they are performing well? But if they are doing their job on the regular basis and generating a good profit for the firm then obviously they must be awarded by a good increment in their salary. Thus if MBAs are making profit for the company then rise in their salaries will, of course, be sustainable. No doubt it.

Thank you.

Hi, friends.

It's good to know your valuable opinions.

In my opinion, the payscale of any organization should not be dependent upon any degree you have, I agree with the fact that MBA Graduates possess better managerial skills than any other person but management is needed for the free running of an organisation it doesn't contribute much in the profit gained by the firm. So I feel that. Those should be paid higher salaries who works towards generating more profits for the organization, those who earn a good name for the firm through their work etc irrespective.

Of their educational qualification because college dropouts can well run a company as compared to other degree holders. So I feel that payscale should depend on upon the type of work you do for the organization you work in but not the degree you hold.

Hi friends,

I feel, the answer to the posed question depends on the situation. If the job market improving, and can absorb the increasing number of B-School grads, then it is sustainable. But if there is an overall slowdown in economy, then there is a problem.

We need to understand that individual salaries is always sustainable. A person is paid 1 lakh a month, because he generates revenue worth 3 to 4 lakhs. If he doesn't he's sacked or his salary gets stagnant. So, on the whole its sustainable, as it is self-correcting.

Hello Mates,

A warm greetings from my end for participating in this valuable thread.

I would like start with the line that TIME HAS SOLUTION FOR EVERY ISSUES.

If we say number of students are increasing everyday then we also see the quality of students.

A company doesn't see the salary much they fix the responsibility for designation and salary for that responsibility.

A MBA grad if alone does all the responsibility will be prefered the most only thing is that an organisation would have the more candidate to review.

Ex yesterday 10 today 20 tomorrow 30 but responsibility will be the same.

So The Grad who has strong Skill will rise in the same way as today cause "Trade and Business never ends, It was there 500 years ago and it will be till humanity exist".

As per my opinion salaries for MBA candidates are so high because they are trained personnel to handle any kind of business situations like inflation, recession, low demands, higher demands, bottlenecks etc with very less experience and high probability of success in handling the situation. Day by day the competition in business world is greatly increasing and so salaries of MBA are raising rapidly. But after a long run the business world may reach to a saturation point where the profits of the companies may not raise, due to which the salaries of MBA may get effected badly. But there are also chances that the trained intelligent MBA's may search alternate ways to increase the income of their fields which may not effect their salaries. So Rise in MBA Salaries may or may not be sustainable in the long run.

What I opine that your skills and your knowledge is required to earn an handsome salary for you not your degree be it MBA or MBBS or BE. If you don't have knowledge you can never sustain in your job.

It is very right that you have to give four times the money to your company then your salary. In the end your speaks.

MBA is just a degree like every other degree and as we see more and more colleges are running and there are hundreds and hundreds of people sanding in a queue for a single job and at this stage the qualities and skills you possess will explain who you are and what sum of money you should be paid for your work.

In the end I would like to conclude that I totally agree to this point that rise in MBA salaries is not sustainable in long run but it is entirely your passion towards work, your skills, your knowledge in total will help you earn more and more money.

Hi friends, I agree with above statement, but just because of MBA degree, organization can't pay high salaries, candidate has to achieve it, by showing their skill, strategy, which helps the organization to achieve the goal.

And it dose not mean, that the person who don't have MBA degree, he/she can't have working skill and he or she can't effort to achieve a goal.

The difference is that the candidate who held MBA degree, he or she enhanced their managing skill in MBA course.

I am totally agree with this statement. Holding MBA degree with you doesn't mean that you will get highest package this scenario was in market before 5-6 years but now a days their are son many guys around us who are with same qualification.

So it is very important that how you are expressing your knowledge and skills in front of this competitive world because your theoretical knowledge is not useful for you as well as this market. So its fully depends upon you how you applying your knowledge and skills for solving problems.

So if anybody wants to sustain in this market he or she must have to be update with current knowledge and should develop own ideas to tackle the problem coming in market otherwise their is no demand in this market for that market.

So finally I want to say that only having MBA degree it doesn't count now you should prove yourself in front of the world based on your own knowledge, skills and ideas.

Good morning friends. Today's topic is rise in MBA salary is not sustainable " if we look back. Around 5 years back MBA degree was not so common bit these days MBA degree is as common as graduation. It is more or less a mandatory degree which everyone opts for. MBA does not guarantee a sustainable salary. However in any field it is knowledge, skill and expertise is what any company demands. Degree gives you an entry to a job but it is your profile, knowledge and understanding that makes you to the top. So according to me, yes MBA salaries are not sustainable. Rather a person to keep up with current issues, knowledge and expertise in whatever companies demand for handsome salaries. Thank you.

As in India, there are so many sectors which need to be developed yet, MBA's (with good skill) will be required for the next 10-15 years at least and they will be paid good enough.

As I feel that the above statement has a worthy meaning, as we studied in economics law of demand and supply, as there is huge no. Of MBA graduates are in the pipeline, there would be excess of supply over demand hence definitely compensation range would come down, there is relatively less positions avaible with the organisation to be filled, hence it there is enormous competition in the market hence it can be said that rise in MBA salary range would not sustain in the long run.

At the onset I would like to say that a rise in salary fot the MBA's is not sustainable in long run. A good healthy company can afford to pay high salaries to its mba's as they get justified return from them. Also people always looks a good pay packet as a means of their motivation. So higher salary can bring out the better effort from a mba. But at the same time it should be taken into condition the socio-economic condition of the society so that a huge imbalance in salaries can bring dolerums in the society which is not acceptable in a healthy civilised society. Also it is necessary for the company to retain efficient mba's for better business. So there should be alternate way to satisfy its employees ; may be by good fringe benefits and perks. Unplanned rise in salary may lead to CITIBANK type situation where the bank needs a bailout package from the government and its top officials are getting increased salary.

Rise in MBA Salaries can be Sustainable in the Long Run only when you improve your personal abilities and skills as per today's market demand. Only with an MBA degree you cant expect to get high packages in the long run. Company will pay you high packages only when they realize that you are productive for them in the long run.

Its you who make the better use of your degree with your personal abilities and skills. Other than no salary is going for a long run in any field. If you are doing good and your company is earning benefit from you. You can enjoy pretty handsome salary. On the other hand if your campany's finacial position is not well and simuntaneously reccesion is hitting at that time. Then, you should not expect good salary from your employers inspite being an MBA or else.

All I know that- it completely depends on how well company is doing the business because if company is making more profits,there is the contribution of managers so they can be paid more based on their contributions.therefore it's not related to the either long run or short run.

Holding and MBA degree does not guarantee of a good salary package. Now a days all industries are looking the person who can actually earn business for them. They are not looking MBAs only. If a person who does not have these degrees but has skills can get more salary than an MBA. I have seen MBA degree holder earn less than a regular graduate in industry.

Its not just about MBA Salaries but everything in the todays market is not sustainable in the long run. Moreover in the past 4-5 years in India there has been a Massive growth towards the Interest of Students towards Management Studies and MNC's selecting the Cream is on of the main reason's of MBA Salaries going all the way up but if this continuous for the next 5 years there will definite stop in the rise because guyz if we will have 1 lakh of doc's and advocates and 10 lakh of MBA's there would be a big % of people willing to work on Low Salaries as Managers.

I fully agree with Ankit, since one thing remains constant in the market is the change, so it depends upon the market situations to rise or not.

Nobody can't predict about the sustainability of salary of a manager. But its true that various factor like recession, companies financial position has a great influence over salary. Other than this we can't ignore the performance is another key factor, which has direct influence on salary. So if an manager is performing well then definitely he will get a sustainably higher salary.

Salary of a manager should be fixed but in case of any trouble it should be decreased or increased. Apart from that if a manager is performing very well, he should be encouraged by giving some perks.

If the share value goes to Zero then what will be the salary of a Manager. All levels of manager put their best efforts for the company. Hence their salary must be in the right proportion of the profit gained by the company.

Hi friends,.

According to me, the salary of higher level managers could be given in form of shares of company so that if value of shares rises, their salary rises and if it depreciates then the salary depreciates. This would end up the issue of salary rise of managers and also if higher level managers work hard for company to bring it up, they are suitably rewarded by hike in shares and vice-versa.

According to me salary of any personnel is just a compensation for the work done by the personnel. Also the salary of the MBA personnel is fully dependent upon the market and no buddy know about market.

Well I do agree that rise in MBA salaries is not sustainable. This is because the business and economic cycle doesn't permit to be so. This can be well explained by taking an example. When the economy is booming and Business cycle is in its peak, the salary Will go up but when there s a downturn, the salaries are slashed. Hence as mentioned by Sarthak the macro factors does allow the salaries to be sustainable in the long run.

I think there are various extraneous factors which contribute to the decision of sustainability of the MBA income in the long run. The argument can not be generalized. If the macro factors are favourable then the salary will hike and if there are turbulent times then it may as well succumb.

Well it depends, if the company is doing good business and generating revenues then yes the rise is sustainable for the long run. If for some reasons like recession it may not b sustainable but for some exceptions. The recession that hit India and other countries is a good example. There were many sectors which were not effected fully by the recession.
