Except for the U.S., which countries supply Harvard Business School with the most international MBA students?

If you guessed India, you are certainly right. With 104 students from India currently in Harvard’s two-year MBA program, the country has a hefty lead over number two Canada and number three China, according to Harvard University’s International Office which keeps tracks of international students at Harvard.

The newest profile of HBS’ Class of 2025 shows a record 39% composed of international students. That is up from 33% in the Class of 2022, a cohort impacted by the pandemic. Of the 2,024 MBA students currently enrolled at Harvard Business School, 705 are international candidates and hail from 80 countries. Some 22 of those nations supply double-digit numbers of students.

The European countries loom large, with the United Kingdom supplying 44 students and 23 students from France, 17 from Germany, 15 from Italy, and a dozen from Spain.
