Diversity Index

Bloomberg Businessweek’s first Best B-School’s Diversity Index provides a window into the racial, ethnic, and gender makeup of U.S. MBA programs. Half the score is based on race and ethnicity, the other half on gender.

The context within which we launch the Diversity Index is the historic national reckoning on race that was triggered by the killing of George Floyd. Our mission in rolling it out is to assess and rank B-Schools based on the degree to which they are addressing the institutional racism and discrimination that have excluded certain minority groups and women from U.S. MBA programs. Diversity details for each of the 84 schools in our U.S. ranking can be found here, and we provide a full explanation of the new index in our Methodology.
