Salaries by gender
Our topline survey results showed very little difference between the average salaries of men (£99,903) and women (£98,037). However, when we looked a little deeper we saw that the results were skewed by several women who earned exceptionally high salaries. When we looked at median salaries there was a vast difference - £80,124 for men £57,650 for women.
Additionally the results showed that the sectors female MBA graduates move into are those at the lower end of the pay scale (namely the public sector and HR), and far more female MBA graduates (31.7%) than male (19.8%) chose an entrepreneurial route. These tend to be lower paid as start-up owners usually reinvest in their companies rather than draw a high salary.
