ダイバーシティー@Haas School

各校では今秋の入学者に関するClass Profileが公表されています。そうした中で、Haas School (Univ.of California, Berkeley)では、そのダイバーシティーの構成に大きな変化が見えました。近年ではWharton SchoolのClass構成において女性が占める割合が40%を超えたことが話題になりましたが、以下の記事からもわかる通り、ここBerkeleyでは43%を記録しました。

http://newsroom.haas.berkeley.edu/article/historic-percentages-women-international-students-begin-full-time-berkeley-mba-program

The incoming class also includes a record percentage of international students:

・Forty-three percent of students are from outside the U.S., coming from 38 different countries. If dual citizenship is included, they represent 46 countries.

・More than two-thirds speak two or more languages

・Among the 42 languages spoken are Georgian, Sinhalese, Farsi, Polish, and Haitian Kreyol

・Forty-one percent are US minority students; one quarter are underrepresented U.S. minorities

<中略>
Based on feedback from students, the school also increased efforts to build relationships between newly admitted women and female faculty and senior staff, as well as with alumnae in leadership roles.

“We are always looking for ways to build a community among our admitted students, to bring them into our culture and family at Haas,” Fujii said. “Women in particular were interested in connecting with other women and senior leaders who could talk about their experiences and the community at Haas.” –

上記文にも見られますが、在校生とスクールとが一体となっている様子が伺えます。こうした点にこそ、Haas Schoolの校風の一端が垣間見えますね。
