Ivy College of Business reports record fall enrollment, despite pandemic
As many business schools are eliminating full-time MBA programs or moving them online, the Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business is documenting all-time high enrollment for both the MBA and Master of Finance programs, the college announced. The MBA and Master of Finance program students are part of higher enrollment across the board. With a final count of 405 registered for Ivy graduate programs, this is a banner year, the college said in a press release. “The record enrollment is a testament to the Ivy brand,” said David Spalding, the Raisbeck Endowed Dean of the Ivy College of Business. “As a top business school, we offer students the opportunity to learn from internationally known faculty in a state-of-the-art facility. We are delighted to have so many students put their faith in an Ivy education.” With 60 new students currently enrolled, the MBA program obtained a personal best, Spalding said. This year’s MBA cohort includes both concurrent students from across campus and experienced professionals from around the world. Domestic students mostly hail from the Midwest, while international students are natives of China, India, Nigeria and Canada. The Ivy Master of Finance program also did well, with enrollments up 83%.
