At the time its proximity to Wall Street

Downers

When I went, there were too many professors where English wasn't their first language, so understanding them was difficult. This was especially true in the Stats and Math areas, and it made the whole process difficult and annoying.

Comments

I did my MBA in 2.5 years, going all year long at night. I wouldn't encourage that because I didn't get as much out of it as I could have. Again, it was so long ago, I am not sure what I think about it matters. My son went to NYU as well, and I think his criticism is more relevant. They don't really help with the recruiting process (at least I didn't get the sense they did when I was there, and I certainly didn't see it when my son was there). NYU is more about "networking" and finding or creating your own opportunities. I think it's more of an artsy program (Tisch School comes to mind) and they do earn a lot of Academy Awards and other recognition during awards season.

Access to financial services companies; location in the city.

Downers

I don't feel like the school has done a great job of maintaining connections since I've left.

Comments

Stern is great, I enjoyed it a lot, you can't beat the location either from an experience perspective or from being able to network in the industry.
