NYU Stern and Off Campus Recruiting


This review is for NYU Stern

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2015

Experience during the program

I believe one of the most important things in Business School is recruiting - whether you'd like to admit it or not, most students come to business school to find a better job when they graduate.

I was an unorthodox student at Stern. I wasn't interested in Banking and thought I would give consulting a shot (yes - Stern is pretty good for the future consulting). However, I realized quickly that I'm not interested in consulting either. After a trip to the Silicon Valley, I figured that that's the place for me.

However, being in New York, it wasn't easy to make this transition. Unfortunately, I believe that my recruiting process was successful because of me, and despite our career services. I'm afraid that most associates at that office are not familiar enough with what we call off-campus recruiting, and that was biggest challenge during my time at Stern.

After learning things the hard way in my first year, I managed to land an awesome job at one of the big tech companies in the Bay Area.

In short, Stern is probably one of the best schools if you want to follow the typical pattern of I-Banking or consulting. However, if you want something atypical, go someplace else.
