MS Class of 2015

On this Page:

2015 was a good year for Simon’s MS employment within all major disciplines.

84 percent of our largest MS class found employment within three months of graduation.

The number of postings from alumni and employers worldwide has grown exponentially, and our focus has been on expanding interview opportunities in our Rochester and New York City locations. Our business development team has increased the number of companies open to sponsoring Simon international candidates from 15 percent to nearly 50 percent.

We are continuing that effort on the East Coast and West Coast in key industries such as financial services, consulting, and technology, which combined hired nearly 80 percent of our graduates this year.
