Real Humans of Rochester Simon’s MBA Class of 2022

In this edition of Real Humans: MBA Students, we head to just south of downtown Rochester, NY, where a small and diverse MBA cohort studies management and more at the University of Rochester’s Simon Business School.

Just 126 students enrolled in Simon’s latest class, which the school aims to be small and diverse. Forty-two percent of the new class are women and 37 percent are international, representing 19 countries of origin. Forty-six percent of U.S. students come from underrepresented groups.

During their undergraduate years, 32 percent had majored in humanities/social sciences. Twenty-nine percent had studied business/commerce. Fifteen percent earned degrees in engineering and another 13 percent in math & science. Eleven percent majored in economics. The middle 80 percent of GPAs ranged from 2.8 to 3.7.

Altogether, they average an age of 28 and 4.9 years of work experience. For those who took the GMAT, the middle 80 percent of scores landed between 540 and 720. Eighty percent of GRE test takers earned between 147 and 163 in the Quant section and 149 and 163 in the Verbal section.

Read on for the stories of six new Simon MBAs – what they learned from admissions, what drew them to the business school and more.
