Recent Alumni

Janeflora Henriques

(MBA ’12)

“Once I became aware of the

Zicklin MBA Program, nothing

else made good business sense.

From my observations, skill and

results are what matters in the

end. A Zicklin MBA was without

question good value for the money.”


Janeflora came to the U.S. from Kenya in 2002 to follow her bliss.

At first she pursued a career as a scientist. Along the way, though,

she realized that business—accounting, especially—was where her

professional interests lay.

Cassie Abrams

Why a Cohort?

Admitted into a cohort in the fall, you and your classmates

will take the MBA core courses together during your two-year

program. The cohort is the essential element of the Full-Time

Honors MBA program because it enables you to develop a

peer network that will last a lifetime. By virtue of its size –

typically 65 to 80 students – the cohort provides the optimal

environment in which to challenge each other to exceed the

limits of your comfort zone to achieve success.

Why NYC?

New York City is the world’s financial capital, offering

unparalleled internship and career opportunities. Home to

Fortune 500 companies, the banking sector, media and

advertising industries, accounting, fashion, publishing, and

scores of entrepreneurial ventures, New York provides a

dynamic, real world “classroom” experience.

Honor Code

Excerpt: “Every day in the Full-Time Honors

MBA program is an opportunity to learn, to

grow, and to demonstrate my commitment

to my goals. The time, energy, and financial

resources I choose to spend at Zicklin

are an investment in myself; I accept the

opportunities and risks that this investment

entails, and the strategic choices that

it requires to reach my goals. I own my

choices and I am responsible for seizing

the opportunities presented to me each day

as I work toward my goals….(As a member

of the Zicklin community) my conduct will

be defined by integrity and professionalism

both on campus and off campus, with my

peers, faculty, administrators, employers, and

external partners of the Zicklin School and

Baruch College.”
