I work in in the oil and gas industry in Houston for one of the big oil companies, but have aspirations to get into investment banking after business school. What is Fordham's reputation amongst invesment banking firms in regards to their MBA program? What is the overall perception of Fordham in New York city?

I think if you want to do IB, then your best bet in NYC is Columbia or NYU. I believe Fordham is on the same level as Baruch. Their average GMAT score for full time is around 600, hence their rank of #82 on US News.

What is Fordham's reputation amongst NYC firms? Is it a respected MBA program or looked down upon?

A friend of mine works IB at Citi. Most of their MBAs come from top 10 programs. I also read online that it's hard for full time students to find employment. Their career center seems to be lacking.
