If elite Master Business Administration programs are serious about diversity, they're going to have to step up their minority recruitment.
Except for Asian Americans, minorities are underrepresented among the students in many of the same MBA programs that often tout their ethnic and racial diversity, according to a recent analysis by the Wall Street Journal.
For example, minorities are 34 percent of the senior class at Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management until you exclude Asian students. Then, the senior class' minority enrollment drops to 12 percent.
The Journal report found similar racial disparity among students at Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business, the University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business, and the Yale University School of Management.
