In order to address the low proportion of female students in its student body, Harvard Business School will introduce a new recruiting program that targets women’s colleges. Approximately 41 percent of Harvard’s 1,859 MBA candidates are women.

The program will cost $500 per participant and will host 70 to 80 prospective MBA applicants in June to expose them to Harvard Business School. Deirdre C. Leopold, managing director of admissions and financial aid for Harvard Business School, said that the “program is aimed at women at women-only colleges who may not have thought of a business school career.”

The new program will give prospective students a chance to live on campus, participate in case studies, and meet faculty, students, and alumni.
