Meet the MBA Class of 2021!

This is an exciting time of year for the Admissions Team: we welcomed our incoming full-time students to campus back in July, our second-year MBA students recently returned to Rochester to begin fall classes, and our application for 2020 entry went live last week!

Teamwork is a primary focus of orientation and one of the core values of a Simon education. Here’s a closer look at our new “team”—the Class of 2021—by the numbers*:

107: Students in the Class of 2021
18: Countries of citizenship
5.9: Average years of work experience
42%: Percentage of female students
2.7–3.9: Middle 80% undergraduate GPA
580–730: Middle 80% GMAT score
28: Average age

*All data is accurate as of Aug. 29, 2019

In addition, before coming to Simon, students in this cohort have worked for companies such as Amazon, Deloitte & Touche LLP, EY, Google, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Meals on Wheels America, MUFG Securities Americas Inc., Nielsen, Novartis, P&G, Schlumberger, Scotiabank, and the US Army, among others.

We can’t wait to see what else they’ll accomplish in their time at Simon, and we hope that you will be among next year’s incoming class! Get started by applying now.
