Stanford MBA Class of 2015 Largest Ever

Post Thu Oct 17, 2013 12:00 pm
Stanford Graduate School of Business recently posted details of the MBA Class of 2015 profile, noting that at 406 students, this is the largest class in the history of the GSB.

While quick to point out that Stanford’s relatively small class size naturally includes percentage shifts here and there each year, the school also reports a greater diversity of experience and background this year as a result of the larger class size.

Here are some of the most notable shifts within the Class of 2015, as shared by Victoria Hendel De La O in admissions:

The class comprises a record number of international and U.S. schools.
Representation of both women and U.S. minorities in the class increased.
As always, there was fluctuation in industry representation, with increases in biotech, consulting, and consumer-products sectors.
The number of humanities and sciences majors in the class jumped, while a handful fewer students studied business or engineering.
Average TOEFL and GMAT scores crept up slightly. The score ranges, however, stayed consistent.
Average years of pre-MBA work experience fell slightly from last year’s decade-long high. The range of years of work experience also narrowed slightly.
For the most up-to-date information about the entering class profile, read more here.
