Gabriela, MBA 2014

Current Role:
Account Manager, Hulu

Educational Focus: Specializations in Finance and Marketing

Why Stern: Reluctant to step away from her position, but also eager to pursue an advanced degree for professional development, Gabriela decided to research part-time MBA programs.  “Stern’s excellent reputation was a key factor in my decision,” she says.
 
"Being able to complete the program in two years was a big draw for me. Stern makes it possible to tailor the program around your life with classes on weeknights and Saturdays that don’t conflict with work. As a part-time student, I was able to apply what I was learning in class directly to my job."

Cameron, MBA 2012

Current Role:
Technical Lead, Greatest Good

Educational Focus: Specialization in Strategy

Why Stern: "I sought an MBA from a top program without the opportunity cost of losing two years' income. As a programmer and web developer seeking career growth, I believed the Langone program would provide a foundation in finance and management so that I could better pursue leadership roles within my field."
 
"The Stern community is one of the strongest aspects of the program. The Langone program's core group system places you in foundational classes with the same 60 students, which become your extended family. Our class featured talented professionals from a wide variety of fields. Since group-work is emphasized (about 50% of courses have group work), you have the opportunity to learn from each other in addition to the in-class experience. In addition, there are an abundance of networking and social events throughout your time in school, including treks and DBis, which provide for learning experiences abroad. The Stern community enhanced my learning experience and provided many lasting friendships."

I leveraged the intensive classes between semesters so I had more flexibility when I expected a heavy workload at my job."
