    So, let us measure the tentative ROI for an MBA degree. We will 1st include the investments and expenses made by you for a 2 year full time MBA course.
    Investment will be your college fees and any value added learning plus the total expenditure incurred in traveling, food, hostel accommodation, stationery, industry internship, and the project work.
    Against the returns earned in the form of annual salary.

    Let's take an example:
    The total investments + Expenses = Rs. 4 Lakhs
    Your annual salary = Rs. 5 Lakhs
    Amount earned in the next year Rs. 5, 00,000 - Rs. 4,00,000 = Rs. 1,00,000 is the investment cost
    For ROI: Rs. 1, 00,000 / Rs. 4,00,000 X 100 = 25 Percent
