What is the class size [#permalink]

I am not clear on the admission rate, as I read the school website, the school claims it received 3,500 application, and the class size it 200, does that mean it only take 200 students? OR the school have more than one class, therefore, the school would admit like 400, or 600 students.

Thanks

Typically there is one class, so in your example 200 matriculating students. However, not everyone who receives an offer of admission will matriculate (decide to accept the offer). So, if a school has a yield rate (# of acceptances/# of offers) of 50%, that school will need to admit 400 students to get a class size of 200. IIRC, HBS has a yield > 90% while, say, a top 10-15 ranked US school may have a yield of ~60%. This varies from school to school though.

Do you know the yield rate for UC Berkeley EWMBA?

I'm guessing it's at least 10-20 percentage points above the typical 60% yield rates for your top 10 program (obviously excluding H/S/C since those 3 yields are above 75%). The reason being that it's a WEMBA program...
