The Financial Times reports on the increasing number of women in the MBA classroom, highlighting NYU-Stern and Wharton at 40% and Boston University with a remarkable 45%. Meanwhile, INSEAD is up significantly from 23% a decade ago to 34% today. (It is worth noting that law schools average 47% female enrollment and medical schools average 50% enrollment).
