MBA students in the Class of 2019 have now embarked on the journey toward their degrees at programs across the country. This led us to wonder just how large the proportion of women is among the diverse classes at each school.
We at mbaMission examined the latest class profiles of 16 top-ranked business schools to determine which programs welcomed the most women in this year’s incoming classes. Although no school has yet to break the 50% mark, some may be well on their way. Two programs—the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania—featured 44% women within the Class of 2019. The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and the Yale School of Management followed closely with 43% each, while Harvard Business School, the MIT Sloan School of Management, and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University were next, with 42% each. We feel that the fact that nearly all schools reported figures above 30% is quite encouraging and look forward to seeing which one will be the first to reach the 50% mark—and when!
