Can anyone comment on how MBA admissions prioritize the "buckets" you fall into?

Some of the ones I've heard include applicant industry, applicant short-term goals, and applicant ethnic background. I'm curious to hear if there are others.

Do they say "Among applicants who are applying with a consulting background, this applicant is 'X' ethnicity" OR do they say "Among applicants of 'X' ethnicity, this applicant comes from consulting"?

Hello Charles01,

That is a very good question. I can provide reference for INSEAD.
In INSEAD, when study groups are created, students are grouped based on Nationality (Cultural diversity), Number of Work Experience, Industry (ex. consulting, Tech), Function (Ops, Finance), and Gender.

B-schools want students to have difference in opinions so that students can have a healthy discussion with each other and learn. This is really very important in a study group. Groups are formed in such a manner that sometimes same facts lead to different conclusion because assumptions each student follows are very different. This difference in assumptions is what B-schools seek for in aspirants (future students). Since learning from group contributes more than learning from pedagogy, B-schools follow same segmentation while evaluating a profile.

I hope that makes sense and let me know if you have more questions.

Best,

Citizenship is #1 tied with ethnic background, then gender, industry, functional expertise, and goals.

Thanks for sharing! I hadn't thought about "cohorts" from the perspective of the people in groups you'll be working with. I originally thought it had more to do with rankings or peer-review surveys. Very helpful to think about some of the considerations adcoms take into when deciding on the final class.
