DiversityMBAPrep aims to significantly increase diversity at top MBA programs by providing honest, pointed insight and direction to applicants and to business schools.
Minorities (Black, Hispanic and Native American) make up about 6% of business schools, yet make up 28% of the US population. Women make up 36.8% of MBA programs and make up more than 50% of the US population. But hey, we’re making progress, right? Yeah, not so much! Minority enrollment has remained flat over the last 10 years and female enrollment has “climbed” from 34.5%.
