    Absolute WORST MBA program is at UC Riverside. If you are from Asia, you’ll get in no matter how unqualified you may be. Do not waste your time or money at UCR; you’ll be better off at U of Phoenix. And their placement is a joke…just as bogus as their admission standards.

    Typically, there are a variety of reasons. 1) Their job search started too late because they were unsure of what direction to go in. As a result, they failed to line up a summer internship that would lead to a job offer they wanted. 2) The job they want is simply hard to get with lots of competition. It could be a position with a top-tier consulting firm, a private equity firm or hedge fund, or a technology company that tends to hire later in the game. 3) They don’t present as well as some of their classmates.
