Real Humans of the Kellogg MBA Class of 2019

The official profile for the Class of 2019 at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management reveals some interesting things about the students who, as of late this past summer, have called Evanston, Illinois, home. For starters, they’re a smart bunch. (Surprise.) The average GMAT score for this year’s incoming class was 732—four points higher than last year and the continuation of a multi-year increase that just five years ago had that same metric at 708. In fact, the meteoric rise of Kellogg’s average GMAT score places it second only to Stanford Graduate School of Business. The overall GMAT score range was... Read more »

Best Business Schools to Jumpstart Your Career in Tech—or Advance It

We’ve all heard about the time Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg—who holds an MBA from Harvard Business School—went on record in a Quora forum saying that while she got great value from her experience, MBAs aren’t necessary at Facebook she doesn’t think they are important for working in the tech industry. And then there’s venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki’s scathing assessment: “For every full-time engineer, add $500,000 [in company value]. For every full-time MBA, subtract $250,000.” But the times, they are a-changin’. More and more students are looking to use business school as their launch pad to successful careers in tech.

New Haas Center Seeks to Tackle Gender, Equity, and Leadership Head On

As one headline after another alleges sexual harassment against women by men in power from Hollywood to Congress, the launch earlier this month UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business of a new Center for Gender, Equity, and Leadership (CGEL) seems more timely than ever. In fact, the idea for the center significantly predated the current media firestorm—and while its scope will certainly include sexual harassment, it will be significantly wider—addressing issues ranging from the persistent gender pay gap to inadequate maternity leave to the fact that currently only 5.6 percent of CEOs at S&P 500 companies are women. Since 2014, Kellie... Read more »

Today’s Fridays from the Frontline column comes to us from Andrew Foster, a student pursuing an MBA at MIT Sloan School of Management concurrently with an MS in civil engineering as part of that school’s engineering dual-degree program. As Foster shared in a recent post on the MIT Sloan student blog, he wasn’t sure what being an LGBT MBA candidate would feel like. Having completed undergrad at California’s Pomona College, he wrote, “I feared that there was no way any MBA program could be as gay-friendly as my alma mater.” As he prepared to apply to business school, he decided...

Real Humans of the Tuck MBA Class of 2019

With its MBA Class of 2019, Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business welcomed one of the most academically accomplished groups in its history. The average GMAT score among the 293 incoming students was a record high was 722, up from 717 last year, and the average GPA was 3.51.
