Harvard Business School is home to the most attractive women MBAs—that’s according to a new study by dating app Coffee Meets Bagel.

On the Tinder-like platform, a smart algorithm pairs singles. Users then either ‘like’ or ‘pass’ to find the best potential match. Coffee Meets Bagel has analyzed over hundreds of thousands of matches to determine who are the ‘most liked’ singles at business schools across the United States.

Harvard’s women were liked 47.1% of the time, closely followed by Stanford (47%), and MIT Sloan (46.2%). The most attractive men can be found at Stanford (liked 39.6% of the time), Harvard (36.9%), Wharton (35.1%), Columbia (34%), and Chicago Booth (33.7%).

The most attractive are also the most demanding. Coffee Meets Bagel looked into the pickiest MBA singles, based on the percentage of times students passed on a potential match.

Stanford’s men were the pickiest with a whopping 67.7% pass rate, followed by Columbia, Harvard, and MIT Sloan.

Women in business school are a little less picky than men. UCLA Anderson is home to the pickiest MBA women according to the report—with the school’s women MBAs passing on potential matches 65.4% of the time—followed by Wharton, Harvard, and MIT Sloan.

Coffee Meets Bagel was founded by three sisters—Soo, Dawoon (a Stanford MBA grad and ex-JP Morgan VP), and Arum Kang (a Harvard MBA grad previously at Amazon—in April 2012 in New York.

Now serviced globally, Coffee Meets Bagel has made one billion introductions to date, responsible for 100,000-plus couples in happy relationships.

The app gives women more control over their dating experience—women get final say on who gets to talk to them.
