Real Businessmen Make Stuff, Says HBS


The class of 2013 at Harvard Business School will contain fewer Wall Streeters, more women, and more students coming from a manufacturing or technology background, reports The Wall Street Journal. Some of that shift is self-selection — thanks to a better climate in finance than we’ve seen the past couple years, fewer young analysts are inclined to apply to business school — and some of it seems to be coming from Harvard and other elite business schools. According to a spokesman, the school is seeking more applicants from industries like auto manufacturing. That way, it’ll wind up with a student body that’s coming from a truly diverse array of bailout experiences. [WSJ]
