MBAs have come to represent the largest percentage of master's degrees earned today, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Yet the massive price tag and abundant supply of grads have caused some experts to question whether the degree is really worth it. The infographic below--which comes from a business school, mind you--has a different take.

Its creator, UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School, wanted to know how new grads feel about the value of their degree. According to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), 96 percent of MBA graduates rated the value of their degree as outstanding.

To be sure, UNC has a vested interest in promoting the degrees, but the survey data is worth a look. Check out the infographic below for more facts and figures.
