Business Schools Sweeten Lure For Women

22 Jan

When it comes to professional degrees, women don’t pursue MBAs. According to the article on Women’s eNews, “Women clearly view business school as a more challenging and less welcoming atmosphere, however.”They more often go into law or medicine. NYU and other business schools are trying to change that by offering cooking classes and  private parties at Dylan’s Candy Bar.

Women-owned businesses are growing, so the rise of women pursuing MBAs should follow. However, it doesn’t to seem the case.  A lot of women who have started businesses in the past couple of years have done so out of necessity or passion. It is often a second career. The idea of being an entrepreneur may have not been in their career goals when they were in college.  Hopefully more women will pursue MBAs and build great businesses first.
