Male MBAs expect fat paychecks

Men graduating from European MBA programs expect to make 30 percent more than their female study buddies, Swedish research shows.

It takes more than a global economic meltdown to cool down the self-confidence of swaggering male MBA graduates, according to a study by Universum, a Swedish recruitment and educational research organization.

Men graduating from 80 European business schools were on an average expecting a 30 percent bigger paycheck when they enter the job market than their female counterparts, Financial Times reports. Male students expected a to earn €67,696 plus bonuses and commission while female expect to earn €52,232.

While most women were looking for a career in marketing, most men were heading for a future as management consultants. Both genders fancied working with financial services and investment banking, the survey said.

Females also held aspects such as ethics and corporate social responsibility higher than their male equals. Guys were instead looking for top management jobs and fast-growing entrepreneurial businesses.

Some 2,630 students in 80 European business schools, such as London Business School and the University of Jyväskylä in Finland, responded to the survey that was conducted between November 2008 and March 2009.
