Whether your goal is to become a CEO of a major corporation or manage stock portfolios on Wall Street, a master’s degree in this field can open the door for exciting advancements and higher earning potential. For 2017, the Graduate Management Admission Council reports that median base salaries for business master’s degree graduates in the U.S. range from $70,000 (Master in Accounting) to $95,000 (Master in Marketing).
