Female MBA Enrollment Rises: A demographer visiting most GMAT classrooms would notice a pronounced gender difference. Indeed, in many programs the class profile is 2/3 male. But, that trend is changing. According to a Fins Finance article, Wharton’s Class of 2013 is 45% female compared to 40% last year. And HBS’ incoming class grew to 40% this year from 37% the year prior. Further, this is a trend that is expected to materialize beyond the top tier business schools since approximately 40% of GMAT test takers this year were women.
What changes do you anticipate in MBA programs as the gender split becomes more balanced?
