Diversity according to Harvard Business School.

Just 9% of the current class at Harvard Business School are from Europe. 68% (!) are from North America. That's what they call "a truly diverse student body". Ridiculous.

It's not fair to compare Harvard to a UK school. Comparing to other US schools shows that its class profile is actually pretty typical: Columbia's MBA has 41 percent international students, UCLA's has 35 percent.

In fact, since you bring it up, the notion of "diversity" in US schools is a little different from how it is seen elsewhere.

When a US school discusses its diversity, it's often referring to the number of students who are from "minority groups," which can be categories like African-American, or native American, for instance.

I fully agree with ralph. US business schools don't need to focus on int'l students because there is a hughe domestic market offering enough qualified (and diverse) candidates.
