NYU Stern or Cornell AEM

<p>cornell..... personally i think consulting is a lot more fun than ibanking from the case studies i have done.</p>

<p>hahaha harvardman1988, just becuz u goto cornell its better rite? wake up and realize that the job+internship opportunities that nyu provides plus the location in NYC clearly beats cornell. its in what? ithaca? lmao</p>

<p>^ Agree. (10 char)</p>

<p>NYU beats Cornell for recruiting, but I mean if you go to Cornell it's not as if you'll end up at a lower-end firm.</p>

<p>i would say both are the same academically. does anyone know which one is harder to get into?</p>

<p>Cornell is better in all academic areas except business probably, so no, they're not really on the same level when you're looking at the big picture.</p>

<p>haha... ok... i got into stern and turned it down. because I honestly didnt want to associate myself with a bunch of arrogant wharton rejects who think they are the <a href="mailto:sh@t">sh@t</a>... </p>

<p>momkimmy, AEM has a 13 percent acceptance rate. so it is definitely harder to get into, and it gives you an education and lifelong friends you can trust, while Stern is all about beating your friends to the next internship. I know very few people who got into AEM but it turned down for Stern... So I bet you none of these people talking crap about Cornell got into AEM or knows anything about the AEM program, as well as the opportunity it presents.</p>

<p>Cornell AEM has significanltly better recruiting than NYU Stern. It's not really that close. Cornell is viewed as a target school by every major bank while NYU is viewed as a semi-target.</p>

<p>um...i turned down cornell AEM for stern. i didnt have to think about it for a moment. and harvardman, wharton's acceptance rate is 18%. there is no way that cornell's is lower (13%). stop exaggerating stats. and wharton rejects? buddy, you need to get a life. like you got into wharton hahaha.
plus, i don't hear anyone else on this thread saying cornell is better except you. so get the bias out of your mind and give the guy some rational advice.</p>

<p>So arrogant and yet so stupid ^^^</p>

<p>so what internships have you gotten canadian? mckinsey or booz?</p>

<p>Cornell is a program on the rise that has excellent placement in all aspects of business. Contrary to popular belief, it has a very strong finance concentration. And it offers you a set curriculum that allows you to get your CPA before you graduate. Many accounting firms recruit here. However, NYU definitely limits you to those two areas. I have taken consulting courses at the Johnson school and let me tell you, they are fun as hell. I never thought I would like consulting till I got a hold of the case studies and saw how challenging yet interactive they are. You think you wanna do i banking or cpa accounting until you get to college and you are like, o wait, do i really wanna be an excel monkey? or you realize how boring accounting is after taking Financial and Managerial Accounting? And then what? You realize your true passion is HR, or you dont wanna be a corporate slave and wanna start a technology venture, or you wanna do managerial consulting, like me? What are you gonna do, start the college application process all over again?</p>


<p>ignant... read the OPs question "which of the two schools is better for business in general?"</p>

<p><a href="http://business.aem.cornell.edu/overview/index.htm#quick%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://business.aem.cornell.edu/overview/index.htm#quick&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>read it. you can read rite? last year was 16%. this year went down.</p>

<p>Yeah, ummm... 16%??? I think I'll skip applying to AEM and just do a double major in CALS with AEM if they'll let me in the university at all ;)</p>

<p>I just got accepted into Cornell AEM and UNC-CH. I had no expectation to get into either of these schools but I was accepted. I now kind of feel like I may get accepted into Stern. Stern was my top pick before, but now Im leaning towards Cornell. </p>

<p>Do you think I will be at a disadvantage getting the same jobs that Sternies would get? I do plan on majoring in Finance, btw. Or would my opportunities be greater or smaller?</p>

<p>So this is what Cornell and Stern business students are like? Cutthroat and arrogant, Im glad I turned both down.</p>

<p>To the OP,</p>

<p>I agree that Cornell has an amazing undergrad business program, but saying that Cornall finance program is better than Stern's is just blatantly ignorant. I believe that any business professional would agree with me. Stern's finance dept is internationally known for its top-quality professors and impressive list of alumni, who have made significant contributions in both the corporate world and academia. </p>

<p>In addition, I am inclined to think that Stern and Cornell-AEM are on par with each other in other areas of businesses as well. Contrary to popular belief, Stern graduates do go to into marketing, consulting, entreprenuership and other areas of business. We now have bain and bcg presence (2 of the top 3 mgmt consulting firms) on campus, for one. The school also has a great international focus. As a Stern student, you are guaranteed to go to a foreign country at least once (3 times if you are a scholar). Studying abroad at Stern is also quite easy. One page essay and a simple application will provide you a spot in one of the 12 locations you chose - no extra costs for this except the airline fare. </p>

<p>With that said, Stern does have a few drawbacks, such as high tuition, red-tape administration etc. But I want you to know that it is not so much of a hell hole that harvardman makes it out to be. After all, its really a matter of your personal preference and needs.
hope that helped.</p>

<p>To be honest I think that you should be considering the differences of the school's you're applying to and not the Business programs. Stern and AEM are both top programs in their field and too be honest if you go to either one its not like you're not going to get an amazing job, and although I do agree Stern Fincance is better than AEM I don't think if you go to AEM it will limit your career choices. Plenty of my friends got I-banking jobs on wall street and had never even taken a finance class. Instead look at the school themsleves, Cornell and NYU are worlds apart so think about the college experience you want not just the job afterwards</p>

<p>Anarchyintheuk is right. NYU and Cornell are both very respectable schools and neither one will limit any type of career placement one might experience in the future.</p>
