I am attending NYU Stern to pursue a career in entertainment and media. When compared to more traditional industries like banking and consulting, the entertainment industry is relatively new to the recruiting process. There are far and few on-campus opportunities to interact with large companies in the entertainment space, and there are even fewer internship opportunities. However, the student-run entertainment organization within Stern, EMTA, does a fairly good job at prepping students to recruit in the industry, and putting students infront of the right people. As the desire grows for MBA's, I feel a lot of this will get better, particularly within the TV industry, which is incredibly fragmented.
While the recruiting process could definitely be improved, if you are looking to get involved in an industry as specialized as entertainment, there are very few options from a B-school perspective, and NYU Stern is still definitely at the top of the pack.
