Student Perspectives

May 17, 2015

On the first day of MBA orientation at the Carlson School, students are presented with some interesting statistics about the makeup of their class. These stats serve to give students a sense of where their classmates are coming from and where they’re headed. They include the class’ average GMAT score, average years of work experience, career interests, and other interesting facts. One of the statistics that really struck me was the fact that only 25% of our class was female! Perhaps even more surprising is that 25-30% female enrollment is pretty average in Top 30 MBA Programs.
