Still more evidence that the efforts to boost the numbers of women in business school aren’t having much of an effect.
The Application Trends Survey published today by the Graduate Management Admission Council reports that for the last three years the number of women in MBA program applicant pools for fulltime MBA programs has been stuck at around 30%. When women do apply to programs, they tended to prefer programs that offered the most flexibility, GMAC said.
So what can be done to get more women in business school? Any suggestions?
