Two types of students choose the business concentration. One group wants to become business journalists, and they know the best place to gain the requisite expertise is in New York City, the business and financial capital of the U.S.

Many Newmark grads go on to traditional business outlets such as the Wall Street Journal or Bloomberg or CNBC.com. Others get their start at business-to-business publications like the Real Deal.

The December 2021 grads are working at Bloomberg (3), the Financial Times, MSNBC, the Wall Street Journal, the Bond Buyer, Coin Desk, The Insider markets team, Barron’s, Advertising Age and Adweek.
