Fri Oct 6 2023

There are more female MBA students in the University of Oxford MBA program than male students—that’s according to the latest class profile from the Oxford Saïd Business School.

In total, 51% women make up the 2023-2024 cohort, a historic first for the prestigious business school based in Oxford, UK.

Following in the footsteps of the Wharton School, which reached gender parity for the third year in a row in its MBA Class of 2025, the rise in female MBA admits at Oxford Saïd means the top-tier program ranks among some of the most gender balanced schools globally.

“We are delighted to welcome so many female students this year, realizing our long-cherished goal of creating an MBA class that addresses the long-seen imbalance in gender representation,” said Kathy Harvey, associate dean, MBA and Executive Degrees at Oxford Saïd.

The presence of women MBAs at Oxford has increased by 20% over the last decade.

The MBA program has also celebrated diversity in other factors, with 97% international students across 63 nationalities making up the latest class profile.
