The applications for business schools may be pouring in, but they're not necessarily from candidates the schools want to create a more balanced student body. While almost half the students in law and medical schools are female, women make up only 30 percent of students enrolled in business schools.
Some schools have begun offering part-time, morning M.B.A programs they hope will appeal to women. The early classes are intended for those with schedules that may not fit with traditional part-time evening or weekend M.B.A. programs. The Wall Street Journal sites students like 26-year old Nancy who juggles her "M.B.A. studies with an evening internship, a student-government post and home life with her boyfriend."
Would a part-time, morning M.B.A. be a better fit for your lifestyle than evening or weekend programs?
