Survey Finds Women Are Making Progress in Enrollments at High-Ranking Business Schools

The website Poets & Quants focuses its attention on the graduate business education market. It offers rankings of MBA programs, reports on innovative changes in MBA programs, and reports on the impact technology is having on higher education.

The organization recently released its findings on the progress of women at the world’s leading graduate schools of business. The survey found that women made up 49 percent of the students in the entering class at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. This was up from 42 percent the year before. Women were 47 percent of the Class of 2002 at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and 46 percent of the new students at the Duke University Fuqua School of Business.

Overall 13 of the 25  highest-ranked business schools had entering classes where 40 percent or more of the students were women. Five years ago there were 10.

The business school with the lowest percentage of women in the Class of 2022 was the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. There, just 25 percent of the entering students were women. Women made up less than a third of entering students at the business schools at Emory Univerity in Atlanta, Cornell Univerity in New York, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Outside of the United States, Oxford University’s Saïd Business School and the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, Canada, had the highest percentages of women at 47 percent and 44 percent, respectively.
