(Some) People Want To Go To Business School Again


Exciting news, if this is the sort of thing you get excited about.

For the first time since 2009, a majority of full-time M.B.A. programs in the United States reported increases in applications for the incoming class, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Graduate Management Admission Council.

The council’s report said 52 percent of such programs in the United States reported higher application volume, and it attributed those increases to growth in the number of foreign applicants. Meanwhile, the report said, a majority of both part-time M.B.A and executive M.B.A. programs reported drops in applications.
