There is lot’s happening in MBA-dom. Here is a brief survey
- Accepted is launching its annual series of chats with directors at top schools next week, Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET/5:00 PM GMT when Beth Flye, Assistant Dean and Director of Admissions and Financial Aid at the Kellogg School of Management will participate in a Kellogg admissions chat in the Accepted chat room.
- The MBA Tour is continuing its series of fairs. This week it’s:
Sep 8, 07 Los Angeles
Sep 9, 07 San Francisco
Sep 11, 07 Washington DC
- Tuck reports record numbers for its class of ’09. "Entering students boast the highest percentage of women (35 percent), highest proportion of international students (36 percent), greatest percentage of European students (nine percent), and highest average GMAT score (713) in the school’s history."
- Darden also reports a record number of women in its class of ’09. According ot The Daily Progress of Charlottesville. "women represent 31 percent of 318 students total. Last year, women accounted for only 21 percent of Darden’s new class." That is a whopping increase.
- The Forte Foundation is having an excellent series of events for prospective MBAs called the MBA Value Proposition. The events will take place around the world in September and October. Forte is devoted to "substantially increasing the number of women business leaders."
- BusinessWeek will host me (how’s that for a role switch!) on September 18 in an online "Admissions Consultant Chat" when I shed my moderator’s aloofness and get into the thick of answering your questions. You can pose your questions during the chat live, or send them to Francesca Di Meglio (Francesca_DiMeglio@businessweek.com)
