Students Say

As the seventh-largest AACSB accredited business school in the country, Pace University’s Lubin School of Business offers myriad options for those wishing to pursue either a broad or specialized MBA: either a traditional Full-Time program (usually completed in two years), a Part-Time program, a (competitive) Fast-Track MBA in Financial Management that can be completed in one year, or an Executive MBA. Concentrations are available in accounting, analytics, finance, information systems, international business, management, marketing, and taxation—students can choose up to two for an interdisciplinary option—and can further hone their skills via specialized tracks such as financial risk management and entrepreneurship.

Professors here are “incredibly knowledgeable in their respective fields,” and every faculty member is “interested in creating meaningful relationships with students” and “takes the time to know [student] names and interests.” Teachers “care about you getting a job” and “talk about interviews in class.” Outside of the classroom, Pace has set up an infrastructure designed to strengthen the school’s reach and reputation while providing opportunities for students to customize their degree. The Center for Global Business Programs sets up academic and professional programs that allow students to gain practical international experience in countries such as China, Brazil, and India, and the renowned Center for Global Governance, Reporting, and Regulation (CGGRR) hosts conferences and sponsors research and discussion on global financial reporting standards, regulatory compliance, and governance.

Students Say

The Lubin School of Business “really prepares you for a career” and “helps you put together a portfolio;” ninety-two percent of MBA graduates from the class of 2017 are employed, continuing their education, or volunteering/in the military. Career Services act as champions for all students; they “send multiple emails a week to alert students to job openings” and set up “on-campus interviews with big finance and accounting companies.” Many Pace alumni are CEOs, CFOs, and partners at big name companies and will come in “to both recruit and share their professional experiences so that Pace students are exposed to a variety of jobs and industries.” Thanks to Lubin’s prime location, students can also easily pay a visit to Fortune 500 companies, the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, or arrange meetings with alumni in their offices in the city. Indeed, students say the “career network and hands-on learning in the classroom” are highlights of a Lubin education. Top employers of Lubin graduates include Bloomberg LP, KPMG, Deloitte, UBS, and Google.

Campus Life

Students Say

The school has three campuses throughout Manhattan and Westchester County, so students come from all backgrounds and ages, and the ability to take classes at different campuses (as well as “plenty of online course offerings”) allows for “flexible schedules” that can accommodate the “multiple events and activities available.” Many students come here directly from undergrad (often at Pace), and there are “a variety of activities to participate in,” such as workshops where students can “learn extra outside of class” and “contests and competitions…for the competitive students.” Professionally, there is a plethora of organizations and societies through which students can socialize while building their future networks and trying out “different leadership techniques they can use in the real world.”
