MBA News: Women Filling More and More Seats at Business Schools

MBA News: Women Filling More and More Seats at Business Schools - mbaMissionGender equality has long been a topic of heated discussion at business schools, and now some say things are changing rapidly. A recent Bloomberg Business article remarked that a notable number of top-ranked business schools have 40% or more women in their most recent incoming class. Forte Foundation, a nonprofit organization promoting business education for women, examined the schools further and found that women constituted only 32% of full-time MBA program enrollments just four years ago.

Indeed, many top-ranked schools reported a higher volume of applications from women. At Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business, for example, 7% more women applied last year compared to the previous one. As a result, Tuck’s Class of 2017 includes 42% women—10% more than last year. “It’s very coed and everything feels equal, which is something I wanted when applying,” a first-year Tuck MBA candidate commented to Bloomberg.
