This review is for NYU Stern
Program Part Time MBA (Fall)
Class of 2017
I had my doubts about the quality of education and the student body before accepting. However, after spending 5 months (2 semesters -Fall and Winter Intensive), I feel NYU-Stern is by far one of the best part time programs out there.
- Student body diversity. This helps in class since you get to learn from everyone's experience, sometimes more than the professor.
- Location, Location, Location!!
- Curriculum is quite intensive, but maybe this is a pro
- I can't think of anymore cons but maybe the full time ranking can be improved a little more.
I know one of my classmate got admitted to Yale executive program and after a campus visit decided NYU was better. Another got admitted to Chicago booth executive program and after spending a semester, decided NYU was better. I can't compare the quality of Langone program to any other top business schools since I haven't had any first hand experience, but so far my experience has been excellent.
This is an intensive program and you will be tired with the work load. Be mentally prepared to put in the hard work! Secondly, make use of the location. We have people all the way from Miami and Michigan attending weekend classes. However, if you have the option, try to move within Manhattan so you can make use of the network and social events. There's plenty going on at campus!
The faculty is top rated and most of them are not just research professors, but work closely with corporate organizations. The faculty are frequently quoted in social media and publish articles on a regular basis that helps improve the NYU brand.
The Career center has a full time team to help not only FT but also Part Time MBA students during recruiting. There is a special program that part time students can enroll to brush up on their interview skills and prepare for on-campus recruiting. The program runs for almost a year and is free of cost. Only students who are graduating in next 18 months and have completed their core curriculum can sign up. After completing students are allowed to participate in on-campus recruiting along with Full Time students.
