Experience Simon!

By: Rebekah

The University of Rochester, Simon School Admissions office is busy preparing for our upcoming Experience Simon Weekend event for admitted full-time MBA and MS students on April 27 – 29, 2012.  We will facilitate opportunities for students to gather information about area housing, student clubs and organizations, and life in Rochester while networking with current students and other admits.  There will also be a case study session with one of our Operations Management faculty members – Greg Dobson and optional campus tours for any students who are visiting for the first time.

New this year, we have added a session for our foreign nationals to connect with the International Services Office (ISO) on the student visa process and the support available for International Students while in Rochester.  We are also introducing a 4-hour seminar with the Simon School Career Management Center (CMC) to help incoming students understand the timeline and steps to prepare for their internships or full-time job search.  Several staff from the CMC will lead sessions on developing your pitch to employers, and will also outline the summer pre-enrollment deliverables, group webinars and individual sessions that they will be offering to our incoming students.  We are pleased to have one of our alums, Dennis Pidherny who is Senior Director, Sector Head, Public Finance – U.S. Public Power with Fitch Ratings joining us to deliver after-dinner remarks on Saturday night.

Admitted students have one last opportunity to log into their Admit portal to register and attend.  We hope to see you next weekend!
