Student Life

Students who attend Weatherhead should definitely be prepared to tackle an intense workload. As one overwhelmed student grumbles, “The course-load is heavy, perhaps too heavy at times. There are countless extracurricular competitions and events that often must be pushed aside in deference to the workload. Too often students at Weatherhead are hesitant to go to important networking events and club meetings due to the constant deluge of assignments.”However, when students do find a moment to catch their breath, they can easily take advantage of all Cleveland has to offer. “Case Western is closely intertwined with Cleveland’s cultural centers in University circle. The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, the Cinematheque repertory theater, and the orchestra at Severance Hall are all just steps away from the campus. With such cultural wealth at your doorstep it can be a great place to clear your head for a few hours.”

Career

Career opportunities are plentiful for Case MBAs. When on the job hunt, students eager­ly turn towards Weatherhead’s Career Management Office as they are great at “provid­ing specific and one-on-one career service to every student.” They excel at helping stu­dents leverage their talents and skills and expertly demonstrate how to maximize net­working opportunities. Additionally, the office offers resume reviews, mock interviews, career coaching, dress-for-success workshops and host numerous career fairs. A snapshot of employers who frequently hire Weatherhead grads might include Johnson & Johnson, American Greetings, IBM, Key Bank, McKinsey, Ohio Savings, General Electric, Ernst & Young, PNC Bank, Bristol West, Progressive, Eaton, National City and Deloitte Consulting.

Students Say

One of the Midwest’s finest business programs, Case Western’s Weatherhead School of Management has a “great reputation” and “world class…faculty.” The “relatively small” class sizes afford students the opportunity “to network with professors and staff.” While students admit that, “core academics are probably not much different from those at other business schools,” they staunchly assert that what sets Weatherhead apart is it emphasis on interpersonal skills, team building, leadership, design thinking and sustainability. Indeed, there “is no school like it when it comes to looking at the softer side of business.” And students find this “forward-thinking curriculum” extremely beneficial and highly applicable to real world settings.MBA candidates at Case are also quick to exclaim that “professors are without a doubt the strength of this program.” As one ecstatic second-year student elaborates, “Across the board they are very accessible and giving of their time. It is easy to forge strong [a] personal relationships with them.” And, “for the most part, they are highly engaging, professionals who are also great teachers.” Although the administration is currently in a bit of flux (a new dean was just appointed in 2013), students nonetheless give them fairly high marks as well. It’s “clear from their activities that the administrators in Weatherhead are dedicated to constantly refining the program and improving the student experience year after year.”
