The Biz School Gender Gap
Despite big gains in gender equality across many fields, when it comes to women in business schools, the stubborn question remains: why are there so few? Women make up just 31 percent of the population in the nation’s top business schools.
That’s true at the prestigious Harvard Business School — where a little more than a third of the students are women — and historically, few of them make it into the top tier of their classes. There are also few women professors, who account for less than a quarter of the B-School’s faculty.
