Source: These numbers are calculated from Columbia Business School’s Class of 2013 Facebook page. The undergraduate backgrounds of 457 members of the incoming class could be verified by Poets&Quants using Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media sources.  Some 548 students enrolled in the class that started in August of 2011. Columbia expects nearly 200 more to enroll for its January startup. The estimate of students from a specific school are based on the percentage of the confirmed sample who have come from that university. Data compiled by Liza Rodler.

  • Anonymous,

    Great point. It’s a complication unique to Columbia and it’s not clear what impact it might have on these results.

  • This is great work but I spot one sampling omission. J-termers are still getting accepted for the class of 2013 and have a separate Facebook group. I would guess they are underrepresented in this tally. I know the percentage of international students is significantly higher for J-termers. I’m not sure how else the inclusion of J-termers would affect the results.

    Hi John,

    Although these series have been very helpful and informative in terms of showing the actual professional and undergrad backgrounds of different MBA programs, it might be helpful to include a story associated with each school’s MBA applicant (similar to the Wharton story about the Johns Hopkins University applicant) or somebody who has gotten in and can share some insights. These data points are really good but I kinda feel they lost a bit of the viral effect that the initial Wharton story provoked.

    Thanks!

    Very telling.

  • Guy,

    Still cranking on those. These take quite a few hours to do and double check. I’m hoping we can have Booth next Monday and Tuck before that. Then, Kellogg.

    Best,
    John

    John, thanks for the info! When can we expect the results for Booth, Kellogg and other top business schools to be up?
