NYU Stern or Cornell AEM

<p>which of the two schools is better for business in general?</p>

<p>Cornell probably has slightly better recruiting but both are solid.</p>

<p>hahaha omg NYU's the clear choice! tell me one other univ in the US that lets you do internships at wall street while studying? cornell's recruting doesnt come close to nyu stern's.</p>


<p>NYU if a finance or accounting major. Cornell is better for some of the other majors.</p>

<p>And, yes, NYU's recruiting beats Cornell's--based obviously on it's location in Greenwich Village.</p>

<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>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>
