"I chose Stern's part time Westchester program because it allowed me to get an MBA from a top 10 nationally ranked school right in my backyard. I live and work in Fairfield County, CT and Stern's campus in Westchester was extremely convenient. Aside from rankings, I knew Stern was a fit for me when I attended an info session on campus and met the professors, current students and other peer prospective students. Everyone came from a diverse set of professional backgrounds and had great experiences to share. I felt right at home and knew there was much I would gain over the next few years and by also working full time I could put this knowledge to use right away."
