The Top MBA Programs With The Most Women

The one-year MBA program at Oxford Saïd grew its proportion of women by 5 points, to 44%. File photo

THE PICTURE OUTSIDE THE U.S.: ALSO MIXED

Europe lags behind its U.S. counterparts in the drive for gender equity in full-time MBA programs. Even where progress had been evident last year, some schools stepped back in 2019. London Business School had been the only European school to reach 40% women among the handful analyzed by P&Q; this year LBS retreated to 38%. Of the seven schools we examined this year, five lost ground, with a drop in women enrolled in their MBAs. However, the news isn’t all bleak: Oxford University’s Saïd Business School saw a huge leap, from 39% in 2018 to 44% in 2019, a jump of nearly 13%. Another non-U.S. school, the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, increased its share of women in the full-time MBA by 7 percentage points, to 42% from 35%, a 20% jump.

As Forté’s Elissa Sangster told P&Q, in Europe, “the negative variables are still in play: There are not enough women in the pipeline to fill all of those seats. So we still want to see growth in the number of women taking the test, the number of women applying to business school. But despite what is going on with the rhetoric in the media and globally what’s been happening, even despite that we’re still seeing improvement, so we’re pleased with that.”
