Have A Question About Specialized Master’s Degree Programs? Ask Judith, Our Resident Expert

Poets&Quants’ Resident Expert, Judith Stockmon of The MBA Exchange

 For individuals who want to focus their career on a specific discipline, such as financial engineering or business analytics, attending a non-MBA master’s program may be more valuable than pursuing a traditional MBA degree. However, choosing the “right” specialized program and grad school can be difficult if not overwhelming. As these non-MBA programs attract a large and growing number of highly qualified applicants from around the world, the competition and qualifications for admission are more challenging than ever.

Judith Stockmon is the Managing Consultant for The MBA Exchange’s Specialized Master’s Admissions consulting practice, helping individuals determine the best programs and most effective admissions strategy. Judith is an MBA graduate of The Wharton School. She has successfully advised applicants to specialized master’s degree programs including finance, financial engineering, computational mathematics, financial mathematics, business analytics, data science, statistics, economics, marketing, accounting and management. Her admissions consulting experience spans top grad schools such as MIT, Columbia, Stanford, University of Chicago, Carnegie Mellon, New York University, Princeton, Duke, London Business School, Johns Hopkins, and Washington University at St. Louis.

She previously served as the Executive Director for Admissions, Marketing and Recruitment at George Washington University School of Business and as an alumni recruiter and admissions interviewer for The Wharton School. Judith’s professional background includes consulting and marketing roles at leading companies such as Johnson & Johnson, American Express, and Showtime Networks.
