Spend the extra for in-person, you will get more out of the program. I did exec mba in person at nyu and really enjoyed the program / my classmates in my section. Ended up jumping to PE after graduating and did some deal work with classmates from bschool. Don’t underestimate the connections you’ll make - I ended up hiring some of them for transaction consulting work (and they reciprocated with some discounted fees).

Nope. No withdrawal. That would be bad, I agree.

I just got into the Cornell Metro NY EMBA and am planning on attending. DM me if you'd like to chat more.

After all, you decide to spend $150k, why not spend additional $50K for in person experience ? It makes experience real, allow you to form strong relationships with peers and staff. That is the biggest return from any type of MBA.

Appreciated!

I can’t find data on outcome upon graduation. But if its similar outcome (i.e. ROI) why would anyone pay 50k extra for the Metro NY?

You meet the cohort in a boardroom (similar to a conference room) and the classes are held live (virtual) from the Ithaca campus.

EMBAs are mostly employer sponsored. The difference in price is due to the NY in person element. Both aren’t great for career switchers or providing support to students. EMBAs in general have this reputation as well as part time

I agree. I’m not looking to switch careers or industries. But I do want to make sure I get the best deal for my $. If all equal then I’d rather invest that extra $50k in something else.

I’m an incoming Northeast M7 MBA student and I wanted to break into either the McKinsey or BCG Miami office as I’m from the area. I was wondering how I could go about recruiting for Miami. Would I just recruit with the on campus recruiters and let them know my location preference and they would potentially place me there for internships/FT or would I have to network and apply directly with the Miami office? Also, any thoughts on the Miami offices themselves? I imagine they are very tourism heavy

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain?

Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom? You know, the one where we teach kids to make a claim based on the evidence they've gathered, then express it in a respectful manner, followed by hearing what the other side has to say, listening with ears open to the facts presented and being prepared to change their mind should they hear compelling evidence to do so? I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦‍♀️
