Thank you for your reply! Do most students have issues finding a job/internship post graduation?

Also, do you have any advice you would give to yourself from a year ago before starting the program?

Hey there, thanks for the questions!

1) So right now with Corona-virus, we have a very unstable situation with school. We are doing online school and I'm not sure about the summer semester. The reason I say this is because I have to acknowledge the bias of difficulty finding a job now that we have this corona situation. Generally, people who graduate from this program go onto be coordinators or basic kinds of managers. This program has no room for an internship beyond 10 hours a week. So we're not here applying for internships for that reason. If you want to go to the big 4, you have better chances with an MBA. If you want to be a CEO, you get an MBA. So you won't stop at the MMgt if those are your goals. Because we basically spend 99% of the time studying (BE PREPARED FOR THE FAST PACED nature of the program), we were basically trying to apply for jobs in the summer so we don't know yet about jobs. My intention is to graduate and be a manager for a mid-sized company. Getting jobs specifically for MMgt through the career board is way more limited. Jobs are mainly for Finance/Marketing/MBA people.

2) I would say this to myself: you did a good job coming into the program with work experience. Coming straight from undergrad has a lot of disadvantages: lack of maturity, lack of real-world experience, lack of business experience.

My advice to anyone considering the program:

#1: Have some experience in business (accounting, finance, statistics, economics)
#2: If you can't handle learning things on your own, this program isn't for you. There is a LOT of self-learning in this program, I can't stress this enough. This will hit hard for some people who come from humanities and biology-related fields.
#3: If you are not a hard-worker, accept that you will do all of the work lol. Every year, for some reason, there admit a lot of free loaders that ruin the integrity of the program.
#4: Make sure you have enough money to do school. It's not popular for admissions or students to tell you this, but don't rush to be in debt for school. If you can gain work experience and make money, you will be in a comfortable position to start school.
#5: Do your best to network

Hey everyone.

I'm a current student in the MMgt program. Let me know if you have any questions and want to hear my honest thoughts about the program ;)

I WILL NOT answer questions about admissions, don't even ask.

I WILL answer questions about program experience and usefulness.

Trust me, you'd rather know now :P



Hey! Just wanted to know, how many students from the MMGT Cohort end up with roles in the strategy industry, in firms like Big 4, MBB, Roland Berger etc?

I know only 1 person who got a position at Deloitte and another at KPMG last year. That's it. It's mostly the MBA program that gets you leverage for big strategy companies.

I got my interview call yesterday and I applied in R3 as well. You can send them a follow-up if you are unsure of the current standing.

Can anyone direct me to a group, website, etc. for quick preparation for the interview?

Hey! I did write them a mail, let's see when do I get a reply. When did you submit your application, do you remember the date?

My advice would be to wait for their response before jumping to any conclusion. It is too early to lose hope. If it helps, I know people who heard back after 6 weeks of submitting the application.

Thank you for this VeryFranky! I am an international student coming into the program without any work experience but I do have 8 months of internship experience spread over my 4 years of undergrad. My undergrad was in Computer Science (not sure if that is relevant). How hard is it for someone like this to land a decent job after the MMgt?
