It’s a chance to gain early access to build a relationship with an industry or a firm and its executives and partners–and to do so when you’re not stressing through the core curriculum that is the toughest part of every MBA program. What truly makes the event unique is that every attendee will be able to hear senior executives and partners of these leading companies in their New York offices so you can see and experience the organizational cultures of these firms.

Overall, we have an amazing lineup of participating companies in consulting, finance, high tech, consumer packaged goods, and healthcare. It’s really a Who’s Who of elite MBA recruiting: McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Deloitte, PwC, Accenture Strategy, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan/Chase, Citi, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Amazon, LinkedIn, Facebook, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Anheuser-Busch InBev, and the Securities & Exchange Commission, among others. And there’s even a startup track that would allow you to meet and speak with early stage companies and their MBA founders, including Wharton MBA founded CommonBond and Harvard MBA founded Pymetrics.

Our opening reception on May 5 at NYU’s Stern School will feature a panel of leading executives from each industry that recruits MBAs (see above photo and speakers), Peter Henry, dean of NYU’s Stern School of Business, Angela Guido, a Chicago Booth MBA and former BCG consultant who is a prominent MBA career coach, and comedian and author Paul Ollinger, whose recently published book You Should Totally Get An MBA is included in the price of admission. Our closing meet-up on May 6th on the 50th floor of J.P. Morgan’s headquarters building, offering sweeping views of New York, will feature Jennifer Nason, Global Chairman of Investment Banking at the firm. Both events will allow for lots of one-on-one networking with executives and partners from all of the presenting companies.

What makes this event truly special?

 

  • It’s not a conference! It’s an experience.
  • Build connections with world class employers.
  • Gain special attention from executives and partners at the leading MBA hirers.
  • Have your choice of where to go. Choose a track in such fields as consulting, finance, or startups or zigzag across industries to meet McKinsey at one time, Goldman Sachs at another, Amazon at still another time, and PepsiCo before the end of the day.
  • Experience the festival with your fellow MBA admits to your school and other leading MBA programs.

I am looking forward to meeting you and congratulating you in person on your invite to a life-changing experience. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT:
