April 27 Roundup


Cornell MBAs get STEM-certified

Two Ithaca-based Management Science MBA programs at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business have received STEM designation, taking the total number of STEM-designated programs at the school to five. The Class of 2021 in both programs will be the first to graduate under this new certification.

Johnson’s portfolio of STEM-designated programs now includes:

Two-Year Management Science MBA

One-Year Management Science MBA

Johnson Cornell Tech MBA: based in New York City

MPS in Management: provides students who have a non-business undergraduate degree with the rigorous business management education of a top MBA program.

MPS in Management – Accounting Specialization

STEM-designated programs are classified as such by the US government for their focus on science and technology. International students on an F-1 visa who pursue one of these programs are eligible for what is known as a STEM OPT (Optional Practical Training) extension, enabling them to work in their field for a total of up to 36 months in the US without an H-1B work visa.

Harvard Offers Deferment for Incoming MBAs

Harvard Business School has announced it will offer deferment to incoming MBAs who want to delay their studies because of coronavirus, according to one report.

Admits will have a window between May 15th and June 1st to request a deferral to start the full-time MBA program in 2021—or potentially even later—instead of this fall. HBS will no longer accept deferral requests after June 1st.

The news comes as MBA programs are impacted by coronavirus with classes shifting online. HBS students who are happy to delay their plans and don’t want to risk jeopardizing their full-time MBA experience—studying on-campus, international trips and the like—may be drawn to defer.

Best Journalism school in Europe

When I first stepped onto the campus of City, University of London, I knew I was in for a ride - and not just on the Tube! With its vibrant energy and an impressive repertoire of programs, City U became my home away from home. The Journalism program was kind of a big deal. Rumour was that we were the best in Europe! The lecturers were not just experts in their field; they’re practically journalistic royalty. They were invested, passionate, and had a knack for turning the most flat press release into a riveting news story. With their guidance, I’ve learned to navigate the chaotic world of media like a pro. The campus was a melting pot of every culture, being that we had such a diverse international crowd. Being in the heart of London, I had the world at my fingertips - there was always a new corner to explore, a hidden gem of a cafe to discover, or a street performer! City, University of London wasn't just a university; it was a chapter in my life story that I’ll never forget.

Learning environment

The teacher-learner ration is manageable, giving each learner a chance to gain personal attention. It is also easier following up on the progress of a student, as the numbers per class is not large. the conducive environment for learning includes clean classes, standard desks, world class instructional facilities and the opportunity to engage lecturers even after their sessions. The team spirit at City is above board, with learners getting chance to learn both from instructors and colleagues. This is the university of choice; the place to be.

I liked that each class had a manageable number of learners, making the professor-learner ratio favor knowledge acquisition. I also liked that study schedules were manageable, and not overwhelming. The focus on talents and gifts even within the learning environment makes it possible for learners to achieve the best of their potential, and this has worked to the advantage of those that have schooled at City, University of London

Classes

The diversity at City University facilitates interactions and is a direction toward the unity of the world. The classes are well built to match the number and needs of all students regardless of the elements of diversity that set people apart. The use of technology in delivery makes learning even more interesting and achievable. At City University there is no distinction pegged on the issues that make people unique.

The best university I’ve been to

The campus and the people I've met have made it a wonderful experience. I was reared in a small town with a graduating class of only 88 individuals, so moving to City University was a huge adjustment for me. My dorm has more residents than my whole high school combined! I enjoy the atmosphere here, and everyone is so friendly. Outstanding academic options and a stunning campus. Really great from beginning to end. The educators genuinely love what they do, and the students are ready to learn. On or around college, there is always something to do with friends, and the social scene is particularly warm.

Economics and Politics

Incredibly amazing university, the way they polish students and help them boost their morale and think intellectually is worthwhile. Many universities have international partnerships to allow exchanges between their students. The most obvious subjects for these opportunities would be those that involve languages, and the study of people and places.
