The survey which looked at the 2013 application year which has ended a few months ago (Class of 2015) - which is actually last season by all standards, reported that more than 50% of programs reported an increase in the applicant volume compared to the previous year.

My take on this: the top schools are seeing increases in applicants and the bottom-tier schools are seeing fewer people apply as the cost and MBA ROI are more questionnable at those levels. I would be very interested in seeing a correlation between the ranking and application rather than such general statements

  • More full-time MBA programs worldwide saw gains in application volume for the incoming class of 2013–2014 compared with last year.
  • East and Southeast Asia, Central and South Asia, and Latin America are the top global recruiting locations for all program types.
  • A majority of Master in Management programs reported receiving more applications this year than last; yet, a greater share of accounting and finance master's programs reported receiving fewer applications than they have over the last five years. Finance master's programs remain the most competitive based on acceptance rates, however.

Agree, bb. This is pretty useless. There is absolutely no take away on whether the application numbers rose themselves rose (absolute terms) and whether they rose for higher ranked programs. Seems like someone just wanted to make a chart out of whatever 3 excel columns they had.
