Great Program - Amazing People


This review is for NYU Stern

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

NYU Stern really focuses on recruiting for IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), and it shows in the student body. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful and smart people, and the network you make from this program is very worthwhile. The course and professors are interesting to - in the night classes you will often find professors who are experts in their field and currently working. The founder of Buzzfeed occasionally teaches a night class. The recrutiting options for off-campus jobs are great as well because of the location in NYC. Any company you could possibly want to network with is just a subway ride away. I have seen other students from schools in Boston at recruiting events, and they travel down to NYC Thursday night and have to get a hotel for the weekend to do the same thing that I can do leaving my apartment in the morning.

About job placement process

The recruiting process is solid and great companies do come to campus, but it can be a little difficult to get top jobs if you don't have a great background coming into the program. There are plenty of kids with awesome GMAT scores and great grades who didn't even get an interview for MBB. That's not to stay it's not possible to get top consulting jobs, but they don't take many people from Stern (at least for internships). IB is a different story - plenty of people get internships at top banks. Some people who recruit for banking get no banking offers, but the majority get something, and every bank you could possibly want to work for recruits in decent numbers at Stern. It's also a good place to go if you want to work at Amazon - we send a bunch of people there every year.
