 Acceptance Rates at Ivy League Business Schools

Getting accepted to an Ivy League program is no easy feat. Admissions are competitive at all six Ivy League business schools. Acceptance rates vary from school to school. Rates can also vary from year to year. For example, in years where applications are trending up, more people are inevitably turned away. In years when fewer applications are submitted…well, a lot of people are still turned away.

 

Acceptance rates at top business schools, particularly the Ivy League schools, tend to fall somewhere between 10% and 20%. In other words, 80-90% of the people who apply to Ivy League MBA programs are rejected. All of this data is publicly available and can often be found on business school websites. So, if you are curious about your chances, be sure to look for specific acceptance rates at your school of choice.

 

Perfect vs. Imperfect Ivy League Business School Candidate

There really is no such thing as a perfect Ivy League business school candidate. Different schools look for different things at different times when evaluating applications. Guaranteed acceptance is unlikely no matter what your profile looks like. Besides all other dimensions, a solid interview and a good essay play key part in your acceptance.

The Six Ivy League Business Schools

 

Ivy League schools attract intellectuals from around the world and have a legendary reputation for academic excellence. There are eight Ivy League schools, but only six Ivy League business schools. Princeton University and Brown University do not have business schools.

 

The six Ivy League business schools include:

  • Columbia Business School- Columbia University
  • Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management- Cornell University
  • Harvard Business School- Harvard University
  • Tuck School of Business- Dartmouth College
  • Wharton School- University of Pennsylvania
  • Yale School of Management- Yale University

 

Columbia Business School

Columbia Business School is known for its diverse entrepreneurial community. The school’s location in the business hub of New York City provides unparalleled immersion in the business world. Columbia offers many different graduate programs, including an MBA program, executive MBA programs, doctoral programs, and Master of Science programs in several business disciplines. Students who are seeking an international experience should explore Columbia’s pioneering program with London Business School, EMBA-Global Americas and Europe, or the EMBA-Global Asia, created in partnership with the University of Hong Kong.

 

Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate Schoolof Management

Cornell University’s Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, more commonly known as Johnson, takes a performance-learning approach to business education. Students learn theoretical frameworks, apply them to real-world situations in actual business settings, and receive continuous feedback from qualified experts. Johnson offers the Cornell MBA five different ways: one-year MBA (Ithaca), two-year MBA (Ithaca), tech-MBA (Cornell Tech), executive MBA (Metro NYC), and Cornell-Queen’s MBA (Offered in conjunction with Queen’s University). Additional business education options include executive education and PhD programs. Students seeking a global experience should look to Johnson’s newest program, the Cornell-Tsinghua MBA/FMBA, a dual degree program offered by Johnson at Cornell University and PBC School of Finance (PBCSF) at Tsinghua University.

 

Harvard Business School

The overall mission of Harvard Business School is to educate leaders who make a difference. The school does this through its educational programs, faculty, and influence around the world. HBS program offerings include a two-year MBA program, executive education, and eight full-time doctoral programs leading to a PhD or DBA. HBS also offers summer programs for ambitious undergraduates. Students who like the idea of studying online should explore the school’s HBX online programs, which incorporate active learning and the case method learning model.

 

Tuck School of Business

The Tuck School of Business was the very first graduate school of management founded in the United States. It offers only one degree program: a full-time MBA. Tuck is a small business school, and it works hard to facilitate a collaborative learning environment designed to build lifelong relationships. Students participate in a unique residential experience that promotes teamwork while focusing on a core curriculum of general management skills. Their education is then rounded out with advanced electives and seminars.

 

Wharton School

Founded more than a century ago in 1881, Wharton is the oldest Ivy League business school. It employs the most published business school faculty and has a global reputation for excellence in business education. Undergraduate students who attend Wharton School work toward a BS in economics and have an opportunity to choose from more than 20 different business concentrations. Graduate students can enroll in one of several MBA programs. Wharton also offers interdisciplinary programs, executive education, and PhD programs. Minority students who are still in high school should check out Wharton’s pre-college LEAD program.

 

Yale School of Management

Yale School of Management prides itself on educating students for leadership positions in every sector of society: public, private, nonprofit, and entrepreneurial. Programs are integrated, combining fundamental core courses with unlimited elective choices. Graduate students can choose from a range of programs at the graduate level, including executive education, MBA programs, a Master of Advanced Management, PhD programs, and joint degrees in business and law, medicine, engineering, global affairs, and environmental management, among others. Yale School of Management does not award undergraduate degrees, but second-, third-, and fourth-year university students (as well as recent graduates) can participate in Yale SOM’s two-week Global Pre-MBA Leadership Program.

美国实力派商学院简介  

 

  • 麻省理工大学商学院
    金融和技术管理是强项。位于波士顿,是哈佛的邻居。MIT的金融和技术管理很强。该校从2013年开始才从内地直接招生。
  • 西北大学凯洛格商学院
    以市场营销最为有名。该学院的市场营销 Philip Kotler教授在上海的演讲会的门票高达几千美元一张。在所有前十名的学校当中,凯洛格的学生也许是最轻松的,因为该校同学之间非常乐于互相帮助。无论是讨论案例,还是毕业后找工作都十分乐于互帮互助。
  • 斯坦福大学商学院
    MBA以综合管理见长,每年只招365人。近年来每届只有4位中国人有机会去这所位于加州八千英亩的美国顶尖大学。可能是竞争太过激烈的缘故,斯坦福的中国申请者并不如哈佛丶沃顿等学校的多。
  • 哥伦比亚大学商学院
    占尽地利,位于纽约。受地理之益,该校学生多半会在华尔街找工作,多从事投资银行业和咨询业。
  • 杜克大学富卡
    美国留学奖学金最多。位于北卡罗莱纳州。虽然它的地理位置不太利于找工作,但是课堂教学力求实用,所以它的毕业生非常受欢迎。近年进步很快,总体呈上升趋势。前年该学校只招收了8名来自中国的学生,去年一下增长到25名。
  • 哈佛商学院

虽然近年哈佛商学院从未在《商业周刊》的商学院排名位列第一,但是它的受欢迎程度可能任何一所商学院都不能望其项背。2013年哈佛有10382人申请,比沃顿多2000人。哈佛首创的案例教学已成为MBA教育中的经典,被许多商学院效仿。在哈佛,案例教学占总教学内容的80%,远高于一般学院的50%。每天三个案例的学习量确实不是一般人可以胜任的。

  • 密执根大学商学院
    备受汽车丶制造业青睐。位于密执根州安娜堡城。由于靠近底特律工业城,除了咨询业等MBA传统就业行业以外,许多汽车丶制造等传统公司都会去密执根招聘学生。
  • 芝加哥大学商学院
    商学院中的“理论”派。考虑到该院有多达5名诺贝尔奖获得者,这并不奇怪。芝大的学生多半是冲着它在金融方面的声望去的,去年该校80%的学生有意从事投资银行业。芝大在去年录取了80名中国人,虽然今年下降到40多名,但仍然是顶尖商学院中录取中国人最多的学校。
  • 达特茅斯大学的塔克商学院
    世界第一家商科研究生院。已经有100多年的校史了,他的学生不多,现在只有465名学生,正是这种小规模让它很容易适应周围的环境,并易于创新和变革。不过塔克也是录取要求最严丶最具挑战性的商学院。
  • 宾夕法尼亚大学的沃顿商学院
    喜欢有工作经验的学生。位于美国费城。由于其在金融方面的声望过大,许多人都忘了沃顿其实在任何一个商业领域都非常强。两年前,沃顿曾经一届就录取了58名中国人,从此沃顿商学院几乎成了每一位中国人的必选学校。相比哈佛和斯坦福,沃顿更喜欢工作经历长的人。
