About Baruch

<t>Hey Z,Let me help you a little bit. Baruch's program is fairly new, only about 3 or 4 years old. Thus, very few people know or even heard about it (unless you are in NYC). Try to schedule an appointment with Dan Stefanica (he is the director of the program). He's a very nice guy and fun to chat w...

USC and CMU

<t>I totally agree with kingrat55. =)Besides the alumni contacts, you might also want to think twice about the job opportunities. Being in the NYC for finance-related jobs is like being in the center of the universe. There are endless opportunities (maybe not endless, but ample). Whereas in Californ...

Please help me to decide what school to choose.

<t>Hey Steve,Yes, it's possible to transfet to Pittsburgh campus PRIOR to the start of the program. You must indicate your interest to Gwen and Rick. It's highly unlikely, if not impossible, to transfer from NYC facility to Pittsburgh campus after the program gets started (must have compelling reaso...

Please help me to decide what school to choose.

<t>I just sent you a PM I also want to add some comments regarding the video conferencing network for CMU. Have you stopped by and checked out the technology? It's pretty cool. It's a live video conferencing and the only difference between the Pittsburgh campus and NYC facility is that the professor...

Making a huge desision now. Career switch. Please help with advise.

<t> > Also, you might want to learn C++ on your ownThis approach is far from optimal. It means you learn the wrong things, and the end-result is often an incomplete C++ programmer.Sorry I meant to say you should learn some C++ programming prior to the program if you have no C++ background. This is s...

Making a huge desision now. Career switch. Please help with advise.

<t>Hey Neige,Congrats on your admission to the program! I know where you are going and I will see you there! Again, I think you will be fine regarding the debts. Besides, NYC is the place to be if you want a job in finance! I think you will be able to pay off all your debts after 2 years from gradua...

First job advice needed

<t>Mercer is a top 10, if not top 5, management consulting firm. If you want to do consulting in the future, this is a great opportunity for you. However, based on what you said about your interest and career goals, this kind of job is indeed not quantative and therefore, might not be what you are l...

Quitted vs Laid-off

<t>What I meant was, the difference between the two for future employer. For example, there are two people who got hired by GS, but one quitted his previous job, while the other got fired. When GS conducts background check or whatever check and found out that the other person got fired because of th...
