Who is going to business school these days to get an MBA?
We’ve been doing a fascinating series at Poets&Quants during the past six weeks, introducing readers to the incoming MBA students at some of the world’s leading business schools. A simple glimpse of any of school specific profiles leads you to an inevitable conclusion: Full-time MBA programs continue to attract many of the world’s most extraordinary young professionals.
They come from all walks of life and from every corner of the globe. If you’re curious about who goes back to school or interested in pursuing an MBA yourself, this series is must reading. We not only introduce you to a subset of each school’s Class of 2018, we also ask these first-year students to provide their best advice to the next generation of applicants. The profiles cover the dreams and aspirations of students, along with fun facts.
The series is still rolling out. There are quite a few more schools to go, including Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. Still, we thought it would be useful to provide an index of the series so far. And to have a little fun with this, the schools appear in the order of the interest they’ve generated–an unscientific but compelling way to measure the passion stakeholders have for a school’s MBA program. We’ll continue to update the list and the order of the schools as the rest of the series unfolds.
