Harvard Business School's incoming MBA class will include record percentage of female students

The Harvard Crimson
June 27, 2011
This year’s incoming MBA class at the Harvard Business School will have a greater percentage of women than ever before, according to preliminary statistics released by the school.

Of the 918 students in the MBA Class of 2013, 39 percent will be female. In the two previous classes, women comprised 36 percent of the enrolled students.

Additionally, the Class of 2013 will see greater representation from students with backgrounds in science, engineering, and manufacturing, leading to fewer students in that class hailing from consulting and finance.

The shifts have been part of a change in strategy on the part of the Business School to attract a more diverse student body.

"This admissions strategy has evolved over the last several years of trying to find ways to increase diversity—including gender, race, ethnicity, professional and academic background—without decreasing quality in order to improve the overall educational experience for everyone in the class," Business School spokesperson Brian C. Kenny said in a statement.
