Student Life

“There is a strong sense of community” at Stern, where students are hard working and com­petitive, but also “very outgoing, collaborative, and inquisitive.” As soon as you step on campus, “you have a great support network in all parts of your life, and it’s easy to make friendships that will last long past graduation.” There’s never a dull moment on this “vibrant” campus, where “everyone is on their hustle, all the time, with incredibly varied interests.” Every day, there are “an abundance of social activities and networking opportu­nities” at the school, from club meetings and “guest speakers” to the well-attended weekly Beer Blasts. A current student exclaims, “The hardest part is knowing how to pick one activ­ity over another! There are frequently too many enticing conferences, programs, and activ­ities going on to make an easy decision.”“Located in one of the most exciting cities in the country,” Stern is a great place to go to school “both because of the opportunities and activities available here and the wide range of people you meet.” A reflection of the city that surrounds it, Stern draws students from many backgrounds and industries; the “professional diversity” among students enriches the academic experience, while “high percentage of international students” brings a global perspective to the community. Without exception, everyone loves the urban location, say­ing, “You can’t beat New York City.” However, they do mention one well-advertised detrac­tor: “Cost of living overall is very high in New York.”

Career

Thanks to its stellar reputation, wide-ranging career-development opportunities, and aggressive campus recruitment programs, Stern boasts an impressive track record for plac­ing MBA candidates in prestigious, high-paying positions. Through the Office of Career Development, students have access to myriad services, from career panels to résumé reviews, as well as industry-specific training. The school maintains deep ties with many companies and “incredible access to recruiters”; plus, the “location in the heart of New York makes networking with alumni and companies all the easier.” With so much in their favor, Stern graduates hit the ground running—in fact, most have made major strides long before graduation day. A current student enthuses, “With no finance experience, I have already secured my summer internship offer at a top investment bank.”In recent years, the following companies hired multiple Stern graduates: Accenture, Bain & Company, Booz & Company, IBM Consulting, PricewaterhouseCoopers, McKinsey & Company, Colgate-Palmolive, Estée Lauder, Kraft, L’Oréal, PepsiCo, Disney, Google, Sony, Yahoo!, JPMorgan, Citi, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Barclays Capital, Morgan Stanley, Amazon.com, Bayer Healthcare, and UBS. The class of 2012 had a salary range of $50,000-$160,000, with an average base salary of over $107,000 (the average signing bonus was an additional $32,000). Impressively, more than 87 percent of the class found their position through on-campus recruiting and interviews, or other Stern-supported pro¬fessional development activities.

Students Say

Smack dab in the middle of New York City, NYU’s Stern School of Business couldn’t have a better location, location, location. From finance to the arts, “New York delivers every opportunity imaginable,” and Stern is “well integrated into NYC, both physically and in the people it brings in as faculty, guest speakers, and partners.” Best suited to ambitious stu­dents with well-honed career goals, “You can do anything you want to do at Stern.” Over half of the credit hours required for the MBA are electives, and “Stern is able to offer a very broad range of courses and activities for students with any business interest.” A dream school for future bankers, Stern has deep ties on Wall Street and is ranked “among the top schools in the world for people working or hoping to work in finance.” At the same time, it is known for its excellent programs in luxury retail, marketing, technology, and media and entertainment; those with an interest in nonprofit work or creative fields also note that “Stern has a great support system for alternative career goals,” including partnerships with the Wagner School of Public Service and Tisch School of the Arts. In fact, Stern “is fully inte­grated within the university,” and business students can take up to a quarter of their class­es at other NYU schools, allowing for a truly individualized education. To top it all off, “Most students take advantage of opportunities to study abroad” through Stern’s one- and two-week “Doing Business In…” international program, spring-break trips, or semester-long exchange programs.Despite Stern’s historic strength in the finance, there’s “less corporate/institutional mind-set” here; instead you’ll find “an emphasis on thinking creatively,” as well as a “dedication to solving real world problems through business.” On campus, “The culture is extremely collaborative,” and “students don’t just care about their own success; they care about their classmates’ as well.” Likewise, “Professors make it a point to be accessible and often make it mandatory to meet students one-on-one.” In the classroom, “The faculty is exceptional,” including a number of well-known business personalities. Though there are some academ­ics on staff, most instructors “have vast real-world experience in the fields they teach,” bringing a practical perspective into the classroom. While students admit there is “some bureaucracy at the administrative level,” administrators are “always addressing our needs, eager for our feedback and putting that feedback into action.”
