Women Killed It In Ivy League Business School Admissions This Year

Women must have been really impressive during the Ivy League b-school admissions process this year.

At Wharton, at Pennsylvania University, “nearly 45% of next year’s incoming class will be women, up from 40% last year,” the deputy director of MBA admissions there told the WSJ.

Harvard Business School will record its highest female percentage ever, with 39% of the class of 2013 being women.

Other groups that impressed admissions offices, at least at Harvard Business School, people with tech and manufacturing backgrounds.

A group that didn’t kill it? Wall Streeters.
