Top business schools in New York – Ranking, costs, GMAT / GRE scores, salaries, recruiters

 
What makes New York special? The theatre, culture, food, museums, and the fact that it is home to one of world’s most important financial centres – the Wall Street. As far as the number of Fortune 500 companies are concerned, the state of New York rooms in the neighbourhood of 55, with most of them belonging to, you guessed right, the finance sector. So, it is natural to understand why business schools, based in New York, would get an added advantage at seeking out visibility for their graduates, in a land teeming with corporate giants.

To give you an inspirational big picture, New York is among the top three states, right after Massachusetts and Illinois’ five each, in producing the most number of Fortune 500 CEOs – NYU Stern’s George S. Barrett (Cardinal Health), Columbia’s James P. Gorman (Morgan Stanley), and Cornell’s Mark T. Bertolini (Aetna) and Irene B. Rosenfeld (Mondelez International).

Its business schools feature in the top rankings of the Financial Times, and more. It is also fairly close to other well-known education centres of the world, like Massachusetts’ Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Rhode Island’s Brown University, and Connecticut’s Yale. You may say that business students, in the state of New York, are showered with more than just a sea of employment opportunities, and networking avenues.

The community of all the east coast scholastic powerhouses manage to keep the competitive spirit around and very much alive, for these students.

Perhaps, that is why we decided that having an exclusive article, dedicated to the business schools of New York, was in order. While Cornell, NYU, Rochester, and Columbia, are quite globally popular, there are also other excellent business schools hidden behind the limelight that the above schools enjoy. Hence the list and some relevant details, enough for a teaser for you to explore in detail.
