Starting at Harvard, then going global, and now digital, the MBA continues to adapt to the world of business. That being said, in recent years, the value of an MBA degree has been under much scrutiny. Skeptics continue to say that it doesn’t carry weight or is not worth the investment.

While a substantial investment, many of those with an MBA continue to see career success as the median for an MBA degree-holder is over $100,000. Now that the MBA is evolving to the current economic climate as well as the digital age, MBA candidates are starting to see a closer bond between the education an MBA provides and its correlation into the real world.

This infographic shows us how the MBA has evolved since its inception in the early 20th century as well as notable CEO’s with an MBA, and the MBA's global impact.
