In this edition of the Clear Admit MBA Admissions podcast, two special guests join host Graham Richmond to discuss how an MBA–especially one from the NYU Stern School of Business–can help candidates pivot or switch careers.
From the admissions side of the program, we welcome Lauren Calio, Senior Director for MBA Admissions at NYU Stern. Now in her sixth year at the school, she oversees enrollment management for Stern’s two-year Full-Time MBA Program, as well as its two 13-month Focused MBA programs: the Andre Koo Technology & Entrepreneurship MBA and the Fashion & Luxury MBA programs. She is passionate about guiding prospective students through the MBA application process, and helping them to see themselves at Stern.
To dig into life on the student side, Núria Boj, a second-year MBA student at NYU Stern specializing in Healthcare and Sustainable Business and Innovation, joins the podcast as well. Núria previously pursued a career in marketing, starting in ad tech agencies, building growth and partnership strategies for retailers and credit card issuers. She then transitioned in-house at Samsung Electronics America, focusing on demand generation and e-commerce for their direct-to-consumer business. Núria recently interned in consulting at McKinsey & Company, where she will return full-time in the Growth, Marketing, and Sales practice.
In this episode, Lauren and Núria discuss:
- Why an MBA makes sense for a career switch
- Program resources to consider when planning to pivot careers
- Advice about making a change
- The support and community at NYU Stern
