Why did you decide to pursue the focused one-year MBA program?
How did you find a sense of community and support within Stern?
From day one, our Andre Koo Tech MBA Slack group was buzzing with insider tips and tricks on navigating the NYC housing market and the NYU onboarding process. We had the opportunity to meet each other during a few zoom workshops before our summer classes officially began. Additionally, having the entire NYU Stern building to ourselves during the summer gave our cohort plenty of opportunities to build connections between classes.
How would you describe the culture and community within your class?
With the accelerated nature of the one-year MBA, supporting one another became an essential part of our everyday MBA life. Additionally, having all of the same classes allowed us to collectively update a rotating list of assignments in Slack. I also enjoyed that we were able to take classes with the Fashion & Luxury focused program, which added interesting flavor to classroom dialogues. One of my favorite aspects was when student subject matter experts in the class volunteered their time to host zoom calls at late hours to help simplify textbook concepts and industry applications
