With this much difference, everyone fits in

Students in the Duke Accelerated Daytime MBA program have a one-year master’s degree in business education, across a range of industries or functions and from a mix of universities. Due to the small size of the Accelerated MBA cohort, the race and ethnicity information provided is representative of a typical MBA classroom, which is represented in the Daytime MBA class statistics. Accelerated MBA students complete their program alongside second year students in the Daytime MBA program at Fuqua.”

Under-Represented Minority Students4

3Minority - U.S. domestic or permanent resident students who identify as African American or Black, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and those who are multiracial or multiethnic.

4Under-Represented Minority - U.S. domestic or permanent residents students who identify as African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and those who are multiracial or multiethnic.

1 Federal Reporting Guidelines: The Department of the Interior via the Office of Civil Rights provides Federal Guidelines for maintaining, collecting, and presenting data on race and ethnicity. Duke University follows these standards which enables applicants who are US citizens and permanent residents to self-identify their race and ethnicity with the option to select more than one race and/or ethnicity. The race and ethnicity data is presented here per federal guidelines. Hispanic/Latino includes all known US citizens and permanent residents who have identified their ethnicity as such, regardless of any other affiliations they have reported. Multi-Race includes all US citizens and permanent residents who have identified with more than one race and not identified as Hispanic/Latino.

2 Multi-Identity Reporting Guidelines: To better represent the multiple identities our students have shared in their applications, we share the number of students who identify in each race or ethnic group. Please note that in this representation, a student may be represented in more than one row, so the column adds to greater than 100%.

Example: A student who identifies as White and Hispanic / Latinx is represented only as Hispanic / Latinx, per federal guidelines, but is represented both as White and Hispanic / Latinx in the multi-identity column. A student who identifies as Asian American and Black / African American is represented as Multi-Race, per federal guidelines, and as both Asian American and Black / African American in the multi-identity column.
