The case of unfortunate male engineering graduate.

Twenty years back, when I applied for MBA, the male engineering
graduate was the most sought after by the B Schools. They also enjoyed
a brand equity in the marriage market and fetched a premium along with
medical graduates.
B Schools thought they were easier to teach and easy to place with
higher average salaries. The female arts graduate was at the bottom of
the pecking order relegated to soft options like HR, and stereotyped
as suffering from innumeracy. Even now the odds of a male engineering
graduate making it to a B School is very high. But every body is
actively wooing the female arts graduate who is the next great hope.
They are supposed to bring back the magic. Does it mean HR will be
back in fashion as the chosen specialisation?
