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.
