Harvard B-School Admits More MBA Students with Manufacturing Backgrounds: From 9% to 14%
From the WSJ article "Harvard Business School Changes Its Class Profile":
"Harvard Business School's incoming class will have a substantially smaller percentage of finance professionals than in previous years. Instead, a higher number of students will have manufacturing and technology backgrounds.
Students with manufacturing backgrounds make up 14% of the class of 2013, up from 9% the previous year (see chart above). Technology rose three percentage points to 9%."
MP: Maybe Harvard is preparing more MBAs in anticipation of America's coming "manufacturing renaissance"?
