The corporate recruiters hire MBAs. However, median starting salaries for MBAs in the U.S. is expected to be $90,000, according to a study of corporate recruiters by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) published today (May 21, 2012). Reason ---> 2012 is a post-recession year. Right now, median salaries are back to their 2008 level. (IN 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012, the median starting salary has been exactly $90,000). 

However, compared to their pre-MBA salaries, GMAC said that salary data reported by full-time two-year MBA graduates in 2012 with job offers showed an 81% increase in salary in 2012.
