    Intel
    Dell
    HP
    Boeing
    IBM (sometimes)
    GM (in the past)
    Ford (in the past)


    Many of the top consulting firms and banks will also repay your tuition if you go back to work for them after you graduate.

    But, of course, for many people, leaving their present employer for something else is precisely the whole point of getting the MBA. Hence, getting locked in, either formally or informally, is a big negative.

    Do companies usually give you a raise and/or promote you after you get your full-time MBA (even if they pay for it)?
  • sakkysakky - Posts: 14,759 Senior Member
    Dyip10, that's an interesting question, and the answer seems to depend heavily on the company in question. Often times they will not, or if they do, it will be a relatively weak raise, under the notion that you basically already "got paid" by getting an MBA for free.

    But it depends on many factors. There are some companies that will (in my opinion stupidly) pay for your MBA without making you sign an employment contract. In that case, you really can walk away from the company with your MBA, and hence you have leverage.

    not necessarily. one of my mom's co-workers got her MBA at anderson, went back to the company, and didnt get a pay raise nor a promotion....

    But Anderson Consulting doesn't exist anymore. So let's forget that.

    First off, Andersen Consulting (yes, it's Andersen with 2 e's) does exist, they just call themselves Accenture now. It's like when Datsun changed its name to Nissan, or when Standard Oil of New Jersey changed its name to first Esso and then Exxon.

    http://www.accenture.com/Global/About_Accenture/Company_Overview/History/AccentureLeader.htm

    What you are probably thinking about is Arthur Andersen, the accounting firm that Andersen Consulting was spun off from. Yes, AA is gone from the Enron scandal. But that has nothing to do with Andersen Consulting/Accenture. That company was spun off before the Enron debacle.

    But that's neither here nor there. I agree with ilikeoranges, I believe the poster was talking about the Anderson School at UCLA.

    yeah i was talking about the Anderson School at UCLA

    not to say that anderson is bad (it's definitely not) but just wanted to point out that an employer footing the bill for an MBA might not necessarily also give you an immediate promotion or increase in salary.

    I work for the largest Flavors/Fragrances company in the world (Givaudan) and they ave a 100% tuition reimbursement program. They will even pay for a PhD. It is standard in my industry. It's a benefit, just like medical, dental and 401K match. I used to work for # 3 largest and they had the same benefit. I am starting U-Florida this fall for their professional MBA. GO Gators!
