An Education at the Center of the World


This review is for NYU Stern

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

NYU really does take advantage of its location in downtown New York City. The clubs do an amazing job organizing corporate visits. Job interviews are often just a walk or subway ride from campus and plenty of companies come to campus for information sessions and recruiting.

There is a good breadth and depth of courses offered, although some are only offered in the evenings. Students have been petitioning for more day sections.

There are multiple "superstar" professors and they are generally worth seeking out if they teach in your area of interest. I would say that the quality of teacher (and to a lesser extent, classmates) had more influence on the value of the course than the material and its applicability to my career.

DBI study abroad experiences are worth it for the educational, but mostly cultural and social aspects.
