Race, Ethnicity, and Specialized Business Accreditation
MetadataShow full item record
Black and Hispanic students are underrepresented at selective colleges and universities in the United States (Dickerson and Jacobs 2006; Niu et al. 2006). The colleges play a role by deciding which students are admitted. Since Black and Hispanic students have lower average SAT scores than White and Asian students (Davies and Guppy 1997), and Black students have lower GMAT scores than White and Asian students (Cross and Slater 1998), an emphasis on these test scores in admission decisions may limit the opportunities for Black and Hispanic students. This papers draws some insights about the debate on the equality of opportunity within post secondary education.
