B-School Chart of the Week: The Class of 2015 Employment Placement by [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: B-School Chart of the Week: The Class of 2015 Employment Placement by Job Function Last week, we examined the employment placement trends for the Class of 2015. As we await the statistics for this year’s graduating class, a closer look at the job function choices of the previous class is in order.Consulting and finance topped the function statistics as well as the industry choices, as 31.0% of graduates accepted positions in consulting, and 27.6% did so in finance. Marketing was a popular choice as well, though notably less so—14.5% of the Class of 2015 took jobs with a marketing function. General management, business development and strategy, and operations attracted 9.8%, 8.1%, and 5.9% of graduates, respectively.

Beyond the MBA Classroom: From Philly to Florida for Wharton’s Beach W [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: From Philly to Florida for Wharton’s Beach Week When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.Each spring, between finals and graduation, second-year students at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania prepare to reenter the “real” world by retreating to South Beach in Miami, Florida, where they partake in almost a week’s worth of partying, relaxing, and beach-going. The week’s events are organized, but not funded, by the Wharton Graduate Association (student association). In recent years, more than 400 students have taken part in Beach Week. Activities offered during the 2016 Beach Week included multiple pool parties, a daytime boat cruise, and an evening beach party.For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at Wharton and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

Diamonds in the Rough: Krannert for STEM Professionals [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Diamonds in the Rough: Krannert for STEM Professionals MBA applicants can get carried away with rankings. In this series, we profile amazing programs at business schools that are typically ranked outside the top 15.As technical knowledge becomes increasingly relevant across diverse industries, many MBA programs seem to be vying to dominate the intersection of science and management education. Supplementing its global focus, Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management has developed a program specifically targeting students with a background in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Krannert launched this one-year, full-time MBA program for STEM professionals in 2014, and it was designed to bring management education to applicants who possess at least four years of work experience in a technical field.The specialized STEM program reflects, as Bloomberg Businessweek suggests, the growing role of STEM professionals in entrepreneurship, consulting, and managerial positions. The program’s curriculum entails five modules, including a summer session, that combine a business core and a wide selection of electives with STEM-related case studies and learning projects.

Friday Factoid: Thinking Social at NYU Stern [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Thinking Social at NYU Stern Although New York University’s (NYU’s) Stern School of Business is perhaps not well known among the top MBA programs for sustainable enterprise or social entrepreneurship, the school in fact offers an array of resources for those interested in pursuing careers in such fields. The W.R. Berkley Innovation Lab serves as the hub of all entrepreneurial activities and events at the school, and in 2008, Stern introduced a Social Innovation and Impact specialization, thereby formalizing an academic track for students with this career path in mind.Attending or helping to plan the “Think Social, Drink Local” marquee fundraiser is one of many options that socially conscious aspiring MBAs will find to fulfill their interests at Stern. With help from corporate sponsors such as Brooklyn Brewery and Crop Organic Vodka, the school’s Social Enterprise Association hosts the event in partnership with the Stern Luxury & Retail Club. In March 2016, the 11th annual event took place at 404 NYC and featured an open bar and the “I Heart New York” runway fashion show—a fundraiser for Stern’s Social Impact Internship Fund—in which Stern students and administrators modeled clothing by ecofriendly designers. The fashion show is a highlight of the evening each year and has raised more than \$10K in past years.Through Stern Consulting Corps, students can partner on consulting projects with New York City–based nonprofits. And for those who also have the entrepreneurial bug, Stern added a Social Venture Competition—in which participants compete for a \$75K prize—to its traditional for-profit \$300K Entrepreneurs Challenge.In short, socially conscious Sternies have quite a bit to keep them busy!For a thorough exploration of what NYU Stern and 15 other top business schools have to offer, please check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
