During your time at Stern, have you discovered a few tricks you would like to share to help newer MBA students?

“You can see what classes you got into before it’s officially announced if you look at your required textbooks on NYU bookstore Brightspace.”

How do you Recruit On-Campus When You Aren’t Allowed On-Campus?

By Scott Cairns

I know the experience NYU WANTS for you when they advertise “On-Campus” Recruiting: Company sponsored coffee chats, networking events at the Wasserman Center, and little bowls of Lifesavers on every available surface (a surely sizeable budget line item that was likely easily cut during the COVID-times). In fact, my first job out of undergraduate as a member of the NYU CAS Class of 2015 was a result of exactly this experience.

We are going to share some of their best articles from their monthly issues.

For April, we have ChiBus, the newspaper from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
