Yep, MLB hired for the summer. As did Nike Football and whatever the baseball team in DC is. I know another guy who's doing a Fall internship with the Mets. Sports and Sports Marketing is making tremendous strides at Stern.

PS: You planning to go to any more info-sessions for other schools??

Ya I was surprised by how many people showed up, although from talking to a few I suspect a lot of the people there were very early in the MBA research process and likely aren't applying for this year. I had heard about a few Sternies getting into professional sports management -- I agree, freakin awesome! Although it's not my goal for getting my MBA, I'm definitely interested to learn more about it.

I'm scheduled to go to the Tuck info session on Oct. 5. Otherwise I haven't heard about other schools' sessions in Toronto. Are you going to any others?

edit: forgot I'm also going to the LBS info session on Oct. 16, but chances of me applying there are very low.

Oh that's very nice to hear. I was not too sure about Stern as I heard it was too stats crazy and too finance focused. But after learning about sports marketing NYU Stern definitely goes up my list of schools to apply! But can you please answer a question of mine? How open are these companies to internationals? I know banks and consulting companies easily sponsor H1B if needed, but what about these marketing companies? Do they prefer citizens/PR?

@Brainhurt

Yup I am coming to the Tuck info session! Kellogg has one on Sep 29th at McKinsey's office near Museum subway station so I will be attending that. LBS info session is apparently in the afternoon so I won't be able to come. I tried finding info sessions for Wharton and Ross but they don't seem to have any in Toronto.

You want to meet up before the Tuck session?

Hi solaris,

this is concerning to me, the comment you made about CPG marketing position. One of my interests is to pursue CPG marketing post graduation in US. So being a Canadian, Stern may not be an ideal school for me if I wanted to pursue a career in this industry? Since the companies are not recruitment international students on campus?

At the Stern info session they talked about CPG marketing being tough to break into generally, so it wouldn't surprise me that companies would opt for the "less-hassle" US students if they have the pick of the litter.

Darn! Solaris1's name is no longer highlighted in pink.....

Anyway, what he says is pretty much right on the money regarding CPGs. (Although I've met internationals who did summer internship at Colgate this past summer and received job offers with Visa sponsorships, etc)

Now, running away from NYU thread before Solaris1 gets angry....

Forgotten your NYU roots already, nink? Guess the Alumni office needs to remind you of the special connection you have with Stern!

The whole work visa thing is a challenge no matter what your choice of career path is. I wish I could say otherwise, but it is sadly a challenge. That said, there are a number of people, even outside the consulting / finance paths, that find routes where they can get sponsorship.

You just have to be determined and prepared to take set-backs. I know how hard it is, as I remember exactly how my luck changed on writing "green card application in progress" on my resume. That was in 2009 though - things are looking better now.

Thank you! I am prepared to take on that challenge, heck! going through this whole application process has been an uphill battle, first the GMAT, then the essays, the application, the interviews. I have already learned through this experience thus far that nothing in life comes easy. I say that this experience is a good soul searching experience and it really teaches you about who you are as a person. I personally learned a lot about myself. I am a lot wiser now than I was a year ago.

ok, that's it for the emo talk:)

Some do, but you'll only have a handful of employers that are CPG companies willing to hire internationals for full-time stuff.

Which is quite humorous/sad, given that several of these positions are specifically global marketing and international development positions.

I'm in for R1. I'm really drawn to Stern for some mysterious reason. I just get a good vibe from the school. Its nice to see so many of the current students active on this thread. I was wondering if any of you might be able to guide me on how I could possibly interact with Sternies out in Oceania? Given that I'm in NZ, a school visit or ad com event is not possible for me so I was hoping to set up an informational interview with a local alumn. Would that be possible at all?
