4.1% of first year students and less than 1% of professors at NYU’s Stern School of Business are black

Cat Contiguglia:

NYU’s admission of black first-year students into its Master of Business Administration program is average and their number of black business faculty is lagging, according to a recent study.

The survey, conducted by the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, compared the number of black first-year students at 24 major business schools and the number of black faculty at 22 of the schools. According to the study, 4.1 percent of first year students and less than 1 percent of professors at NYU’s Stern School of Business are black.

NYU was consistent with the overall average according to the study, which counted 291 black students admitted to the 24 schools, comprising 4.4 percent of the overall student total.

With regard to faculty, 62 black professors were found at 22 of the studied schools, comprising 2.5 percent of the total faculty at the business schools. NYU had only two black business professors out of a total of 220 faculty members, putting their percentage of black faculty below one percent, according to the study.

The study identified black students based on how students identified themselves when applying to the business school, Robert Slater, managing editor for the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, said.

Actually, the situation is probably that if they strictly followed a race neutral, performance only based admissions system there would be even fewer Blacks.

Blacks in Higher Education

I wonder if these ethnicity based organizations are honest enough to concede that.

Actually,a more telling statistic would be the percentage of graduates-bet you it is in the low decimal region,if at all.Black MBAs are like UFOs-most have heard of them,but have not seen them themselves,nor have distinct photos to prove they exist.Hell,if race neutral performance-based admissions were in force,the NBA and NFL would be White again.
