Students Say

Stern MBA students happily declare that "balancing work and personal life is easy given the support and encouragement of university staff and faculty." Stern provides a healthy mix of "academics, job recruiting and…social elements." After all, these MBA candidates can participate in "a variety of student-run clubs that likewise cater to a range of cultural interests and professional affinities." One student shares that there are "weekly parties every Thursday night." Of course, being located in the heart of New York City is "unbeatable." As this student exclaims, "In the past week I've been to our weekly happy hour, danced, gone rock climbing, visited the ballet, seen Cirque du Soleil, and gone to a museum." Stern MBA candidates report that their classmates are "friendly," "welcoming," and "fun to hang out with." They're also "very grounded and capable" and hail from "diverse ethnic backgrounds." Importantly, "Stern does a great job of lowering everyone's guard during orientation, which allowed us to bond very quickly and establish a genuine culture of collaboration and support." A student sums up: "I honestly can't imagine going to business school anywhere else and having as dynamic of an experience."
