Graduate Student Life
The University of Rochester is a private, coeducational institution
with 3,000 full-time graduate students. The graduate student body is truly international in scope, with
one-quarter of all graduate students coming from 80 countries outside
the United States. The spectrum of graduate programs at the University also is unusually
wide ranging--even among universities several times its size.
Rochester's graduate students are part of six schools and more than 40
doctoral and about 70 master's programs.

Simon Graduate School of Business JAMBA (Jewish Association of MBAs)
seeks to function as a resource to develop, inform, support, and enrich an active Jewish community on campus. JAMBA organizes and promotes a variety of social and professional activities with the aim of building a strong network of future business leaders. We also wish to serve as an educational resource to the greater Simon school community.
The organization will serve multiple goals. JAMBA will encourage student participation in Jewish events, build stronger ties among Jewish students and to Jewish organizations in the community, and foster a sense of commitment to Jewish values. JAMBA will serve as a point of contact for prospective Jewish applicants to inform them about Jewish life in Simon and in the greater Rochester community. JAMBA will connect with Jewish alumni from Simon and maintain an active relationship with them, via networking and inviting them to Simon as guest speakers, for the benefit of the Simon community. Lastly, JAMBA will provide a platform to enable students from all backgrounds to learn more about the Jewish culture.
