I was curious about this since, the career services at NYU PT sucks.

Anyone know what the bump in pay is like? What oppurtunities open up?

Thx

Are you a current student? Prospect? Matriculating? I was curious about that regarding one of my schools of interest. I contacted the admissions office and asked for alumni that I could speak to. They provided me with names of 3 individuals to contact. That gave me a better idea of the prospects than the career services office.

GBB,

I think you already know the answer to this, but are still looking for a glimmer of hope. You're young. Go FT.

There are opportunities via the LPDP program but you need to do some networking and leg work on your own. Blackbelt, you are young, so you should apply to a full time program since career placement is a lot easier via that avenue.

If you're really worried about this, go to a recruiter.

NYU Career center for PT does not suck. It used to, but I heard it got a lot better. PM me, if you have any questions.

How does it not suck? Can you elaborate on what they've done to improve?

I am considering Stern's PT program as well. Does anyone have experience with the SPEC (Stern Private Equity Club)? I understand that it is one of the more popular clubs at Stern -- does anyone have success stories of classmates that have successfully moved over to PE/VC via Langone PT?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but PE/VC is a highly coveted field. This means that not only do they hire fewer people, but also the ones they do hire are usually of extraordinary caliber w/IB experience.

I recently spoke to an alumna from the Langone program (I'd initially thought she did full-time, but I found out too late and decided to talk to her anyway) and she categorically said the the biggest complaints her colleagues in the program had were all related to the lack of effort put in by the school to help the part-timers with recruiters. The CCWP was practically useless - bear in mind she finished 2 years ago so maybe yubjub is right and it's gotten better now - and that led to a fair bit of animosity between the Langone and Stern FT students. However, consider this - any student signed up for a class at NYU's School of Continuing & Professional Studies also has access to the CCWP. And all NYU alumni. How many folks can they possibly help find jobs?

The Langone folks thought the OCD went out of their way to help the FTers get jobs (by hosting most recruiting events during the day for instance), and for their part the Stern folks thought some of evening classes meant primarily for the PTers had better, more experienced professors and ahem...smarter peers.

I'm not sure I see how you could get involved actively in any student clubs if you're only around a couple of evenings and/or the weekends? Given that Langone doesn't provide any recruiting stats, I think it would be very difficult to break into PE/VC without developing a professional network in that industry on your own.

All that said however, Langone is probably the best PT program in the country.
