    Pay Gap Widens at Top B-Schools

    As women overall have begun closing the gender pay gap, female graduates of top U.S. business schools in their first post-MBA jobs haven't been so lucky. Exclusive new data from Bloomberg Businessweek show that starting salaries for women graduating in 2012 averaged $105,059, or $8,300 (7.3 percent) less than their male counterparts. Ten years earlier, women earned $83,404, or $1,849 ( 2.2 percent) less than men. What follows is a breakdown of the gender pay gap at 25 top schools over the past 10 years.

    Methodology: Based on Bloomberg Businessweek surveys of 24,716 recent MBA graduates at our current top 30 U.S. business schools conducted every other year starting in 2002. The number of respondents per school averaged 115 men and 40 women per year. Schools without an adequate response from female graduates in three or more years were omitted from this slide show. They include Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Ohio State, and Southern Methodist. NA denotes an inadequate response from female graduates in the specified year. Pay figures shown are base salaries; bonuses are not included.
