ForumWatch: How Important Is Diversity?

ForumWatch: How Important Is Diversity?

Courtesy University of Idaho

The Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forum provides an opportunity for readers—everyone from those thinking about earning an MBA to B-school administrators—to debate and discuss issues that are relevant to management education.

Recently, a forum participant who goes by the username “nutmeg” asked how important diversity is to those who are applying to business schools. In addition, nutmeg wanted to know how people defined diversity. What do they think makes a class or a school diverse? Is it race and ethnicity, socioeconomic diversity, diversity of experience, or diversity of opinion? Business schools say they value diversity but have struggled to increase the representation of women, minorities, and international students.

To share your thoughts and opinions, visit the “How important is diversity?” discussion thread.
