More than 105 of 150 business schools surveyed noted a drop in applicants in 2018, according to a recent study conducted by Kaplan Test Prep.

The study showed that nearly a third of administrators believed the reduction of applications was equated to international students and the concern “about U.S. political climate.” Another third of administrators blame a strong economy for keeping applicant from applying. Nearly 3 in 4 business schools are nervous that the political climate may keep international students from applying. This survey closely resembles what GMAC found earlier this year.
