Wondering what everyone thought about the job market in Miami - not only firm jobs but also consulting and in-house positions? I know the tourist/entertainment industry is fairly large for the miami area, but what about other business areas? I have only heard bad things about Miami's Career Center, so finding a job will be tough. And not everyone will graduate at the top of the class, so this is a possibility for many.
I personally am interested in i-banking and was planning on getting the MBA as well and Miami seems to be well situated for this business area (see excerpt). I am not looking for a typical firm job. I would be happy to accept an exec/mgt position.
Does anyone have any perspective/personal experiences on this?
Excerpt from a website:
Situated on a 260-acre tropical campus in the community of Coral Gables, the University of Miami School of Business Administration has been called the "Ivy League School of the South." Located at the gateway to Latin America, the University of Miami provides unique educational opportunities in a global community, serving as a major center for Latin American and Caribbean business studies. America's Network ranks Miami as number 5 among the world's top 20 telecom hubs, and as second in the nation, behind New York City, in international banking. Peterson's recently ranked Miami among the top five cities in America for pursuing education. With a diverse educational program and an international community, the University of Miami School of Business provides a unique opportunity to earn an MBA degree. Upon graduation, University of Miami students become a part of the sixth-largest alumni network in the country. The School of Business recently erected a $23 million facility complete with computer access at every seat, a "paperless" library with a full-time librarian, a computer lab exclusive to MBA students, and high-tech classrooms. As a "wireless" campus, the University of Miami provides remote online access.
