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.

I think we are deviating from our discussion topic let me explain the given topic. Our topic is that "The rise in MBA salary is not sustaninable in long run. " So, we should put our points in favour of it or in against of it.

In my view I am disagree with it because if we will see physically the company needs a good manger, the requirement of manger doesn't depend upon the the no. Of MBA garaduates passing every year it depends upon the no. Of company. The responsibilites of manager is to manage the company in it's good time as well as bad time. The manger have lots of responsibilities on his shoulder and for that only they are paid a handsome salary. So I think the salary is paid by keeping the work of the manager in mind not by watching the no. Of graduates passing every year. Whatever the no. Of graduates passing every year the company needs manager, they will hire manager for the company and they will pay them a handsome salary for the same reason that I have explained earlier.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thankyou!

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.

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".
