We have exciting news to share: Simon Business School has been ranked among the top ten business schools in the US for its STEM designated MS in Finance program by the Financial Times!

The ranking is a weighted average of alumni career progress, school diversity, international course experience, and faculty research. While Simon performed well across multiple criteria, our primary areas of strength were the extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals, salaries increased, and percentage of international students.

Coaching and Consulting — Kathryn Flaschner, MBA Class of 2017

During her MBA journey, Kathryn Flaschner, MBA Class of 2017, learned that a leap of faith can lead somewhere unexpected. Before she accepted her summer internship with Cognizant, she never pictured herself working in IT consulting, but taking a chance helped her realize one of her key strengths: developing trusting relationships with clients that enable her to implement long-lasting recommendations and solutions.

For Kathryn, Simon was a place that allowed her to pursue her professional and personal passions. Along with her classwork, she was able to coach part time with the University of Rochester women’s field hockey team, which she views as a perfect extension of her role in the business world. As a coach and as a colleague, she works to create a collaborative environments that celebrate team progress and individual accomplishments.

After she graduates, Kathryn will return to Cognizant as a senior consultant in San Francisco, ready to add value with clients and colleagues on day one.

Unlocking Opportunities at Google – Treadwell Singfield, 2018 MBA Candidate

“Are you sitting down, or standing up?”

When he received the call from Google offering him a summer internship, Treadwell Singfield, 2018 MBA candidate, recalls the moment was exciting, nerve-wracking, and intense. But there was one thing he knew for sure: he made the right choice to pursue a Simon MBA.

As someone who had his sights set on the tech industry, Treadwell knew he could easily advance within a company if he had the right combination of skills and understanding of cross-functional roles. At Simon, Treadwell discovered that the School’s emphasis on analytics allows him to take a deep dive beneath frameworks to identify problems and assess if the correct mix of factors are in play to resolve them. As he puts it, “I’ve only been at Simon for a few months, but it definitely changes the way you think.”
