April 9, 2015 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Theres more to Sofia Vergara, the top-earning actress on television for three years running, than meets the eye, says executive and business coach Debora McLaughlin.

Harvard Business School is extremely selective only about 12 percent of applicants are admitted. But even with such a large pool of applicants to choose from, the school still has a serious gender imbalance. Only 41 percent of the student body is female.

The schools new PEEK program is HBS newest effort to reach out to women and encourage them to apply. For a $500 fee, women who attend womens colleges can experience the business school for a weekend.

They will immediately be in a classroom here doing a case, says Dee Leopold, Harvard Business Schools director of admissions. They will have had a case sent to them before; they will be hitting the ground running.

Many business schools also have a gender imbalance, says Linda Scott, theDP World Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Sad Business School, University of Oxford. Why? Mostly, I think its because the environment is fairly hostile, she says.
