Keep telling yourself that. The fact that you are still on this thread speaks volumes about how you really feel.

Eh bro, this is a free market economy. There is no such thing as "lowball".

In case you don't know better, there are already many fresh grads this year who cannot even find decent full-time jobs. So what, is society "lowballing" them by making them study so hard for jc and uni?

You need to face the facts. We are in unprecedented economic difficulty; there is no reason to think you are hot stuff just because you have an MBA.

I don't want to sound like I am trolling you, and I can understand that you might have paid some money for the degree, but the world is clearly in a different situation now.

Your MBA, if considered in isolation, is not worth a whole lot, unless it is from a top-ranked business school where employers compete to get the best-of-the-best.

Value, as you learnt in corporate finance class, is a subjective concept, dependent on many factors and assumptions (including the current abysmal state of the economy).

I am bitter that I CMI at PSLE and O levels, compared to my ex classmates who now easily hold 2-3 degrees (including MBAs) with actual value and work in well paying jobs

So it's not mutually exclusive

The MBA premium in Asia is simply not there compared to the US. Employers don't want to pay you money simply because you went to biz school. Hope people can come to terms with this. They are willing to make you an offer, but you have to go in and prove your worth before you get a pay rise.

Why would any company pay you 10k right off the bat?
