The Stern (NYU) Full-Time MBA

Most people would admit to dreaming of living in New York City at one time or another. For many MBA applicants, New York University’s Stern School of Business seems like the perfect location to learn about business and development. Located in the center of Greenwich Village, Stern gives students the “Big Apple Advantage”, linking students with heads of industry, ground-shaking entrepreneurs, and an extensive variety of institutions based in New York City. If that isn’t enough, Stern MBA students have access to a huge pool of alumni habituating in New York City, with whom they can form networks that may lead to career prospects, mentorships, or other influential relationships.

Among the countless benefits of going to Stern, including its national ranking as a top business school, there are several aspects of the Stern MBA that stand out to prospective applicants:

First, the Stern faculty and staff lead in awareness and connectedness to real-world current events. For instance, in 2009 during the height of the global financial crisis, Stern professors were among the first to speak to media regarding their thoughts and analyses of the crisis. By the end of the first quarter, 33 professors collaborated to publish a total of 18 white papers detailing the financial crisis. The Stern faculty has since published several books on the financial crisis and regaining financial stability.

Second, Stern is an ideal platform for students wanting to transition careers. Through the Industry Mentoring Initiative (IMI), Stern MBAs have the opportunity to become immersed in any of five industries (investment banking, consulting, marketing, media & entertainment, or sales & trading) by gaining a personal mentor and hands-on experience in the industry. This sort of apprenticeship method allows students to see firsthand if the fit is right for their future career.

Last but not least, Stern’s program of “Doing Business In…” places students around the world in an immersive two- to six-week study abroad program filled with faculty lectures, corporate visits, and guest speakers from the heads of governments and international industry leaders. This experience amply prepares future leaders for success in any of our world’s globalized marketplaces.

While Stern accepts a wide background of students, they seek students who show a breadth and depth of emotional intelligence (EI) that so many business leaders today attest to contributing to their success. This ensures that students are not only academically smart, but savvy enough to navigate the volatile business world.
