The Harvard Crimson reports that MBA Program Chair Richard S. Ruback wrote in a letter to Harvard Business School students that future HBS students may be allowed to disclose their grades to recruiters if they so choose. This change, if approved, would not affect current students.
Since 1998, HBS students have not been allowed to discuss their grades with recruiters. Today, however, many are questioning the wisdom of this policy. According to the Crimson, "Ruback and HBS student leaders both said that such a change would be intended primarily to reinvigorate the school’s academic focus, as well as to improve the recruiting process."
The other top MBA programs with GND (grade non-disclosure) — Stanford, Wharton, and Chicago — are all re-evaluating these policies.
