MBAs are frequently split into two tribes: “poets”, with a liberal-arts background who enrol on an MBA course, and “quants”, who have swotted up on the rigorous statistical knowledge that can carry them through their programme. A new study suggests this dividing line could also be applied to gender, with women, falling into the poet category, and men into the quant. That dividing line between women and men is just one of the findings of a recent paper by academics at INSEAD and Columbia Business School. The Economist UK – October

European MBAs May Cost Less Than Elite U.S. B-Schools
