The Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business is proud to welcome a diverse group of the world’s best and brightest talent to campus for the start of another academic year. The College enrolled 244 students into its Full-time, Evening, and Executive MBA programs. These students bring expertise and perspectives from industries spanning engineering, technology, financial services, nonprofits, and more. The range of professional and educational experiences cultivates engaging and dynamic discussions and learning opportunities across MBA classrooms.
As the business program is ranked No. 3 in best MBA class experience, Scheller is committed to creating an inclusive, collaborative learning environment. Each year, Scheller trends toward more diverse cohorts within its programs.
For Fall 2021, Scheller’s Full-time program enrollment increased in women, underrepresented minorities, and veteran enrollment. The incoming class is 39% women. Twenty-eight percent of the students are underrepresented minorities, a 5% increase from Fall 2020, and 18% of the class have a military background.
Following a record-breaking academic year in which the Scheller Evening MBA program enrolled the largest number of women ever in a single academic year, the Spring and Fall 2021 incoming Evening MBA cohort is made up of 41% women.
Scheller’s Executive MBA program also saw an enrollment increase in underrepresented minority students. Between the Management of Technology and Global Business specializations, 32% of students are underrepresented minorities.
“This was an interesting admission cycle since our recruitment was virtual. We took what we learned by necessity in Spring 2020 into a more intentional virtual recruitment strategy for 2021, resulting in increased applications overall and across every underrepresented group we wanted to reach. Meeting this diverse, talented class at our in-person fall orientation made all the screen time worth it,” said Amy Hayes, director of recruiting for the Full-time MBA program.
