Abstract

Many studies find a notable return to college quality. Dale and Krueger (2002, 2011) only do until they address selection bias concerns by proxying for ambition and by matching students with similar admission outcomes but different matriculation decisions. Although we employ similar methodologies to Dale and Krueger, we find substantial returns to MBA program selectivity.

Keywords: rate of return, school quality, matching, MBA, admission outcomes, higher education
