What do you guys think of Stern’s Tech MBA? Trying to find a program that really centers about technology and innovation.

Talked to a friend in this program last week. It seems great and I’m interested/applying next year. My only hesitation is the extremely small class size and the fact that it’s 1yr (I was hoping for an internship). He says the people on the board are actually super involved and all the top companies are recruiting. You still graduate with a true stern MBA and I think spend fall-spring with the 2nd yr MBA students

Ps - Janet foutty is on the board. I’m applying for GSAP and my PPMD sponsor is ALL about this program, he really wants me to do it

Thanks, D1!

If you came back for 2 years at Deloitte though, wouldn’t it be harder to get into Faang since you miss out on the recruiting and career services ?

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

Just spoke to someone who landed an interview at their dream company. They didn’t get it through applying. Here’s what they did instead: 1. They studied the job post. 2. They identified that the reason for the hire was to generate more company revenue. 3. They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it. Whats the best way you’ve seen someone land an interview?
