“As an international student, I was not used to career services, but the Office of Career Development (OCD) was the key to not only learning how to speak about myself and the rich set of tools an MBA provides, but also helped me understand the recruiting landscape, which gave me peace of mind. I was expecting to learn about business, but I ended up learning a lot about myself and my own personal career path,” she added.
Ross Memole, Product Strategy Lead at Google said, “From volunteering with an education non-profit to leading diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace, people + impact have been my biggest personal as well as professional inspirations.
“Given the profound impact technology has and will continue to have on society, enrolling in NYU Stern’s one-year focused Andre Koo Tech MBA program was truly the best fit for me. The Office of Career Development (OCD) and the broader Stern community have been instrumental in preparing me to achieve these goals.
“With well-structured and easy to use tools for recruitment, coupled with personalized career coaching and a dedicated alumni base, I was able to secure a return offer from Google,” he added.
