NYU Stern School of Business


For more than 100 years Stern has had one of the best management-education schools and research centers in the U.S. Stern’s New York City location allows the school to offer a broad palette of opportunities across the board. In fact, Stern is known for bringing New York City into the classroom and making the city into a classroom itself.

New York has more than eight million people speaking 170 languages in 305 square miles. A Stern MBA student can benefit from unrivaled access to global corporations, institutions, and markets while learning from the most influential movers and shakers in the Manhattan business community. With 25 percent of Fortune 500 companies located in the tri-state area, big names are always the top recruiters for Stern graduates. An MBA from Stern will open doors to the corporate world and to an extensive, well-connected alumni network.

One of the program’s notable features is its leadership training. Students lead and manage a vast array of clubs, organizations, and committees and have strong voices regarding the direction of the school. Stern also has the largest part-time MBA program in the country. Interestingly, Stern leads the pack of top business schools when it comes to the number of women students. Recent classes have been approximately 40 percent women, and the number of women students keeps growing.

Stern has responded to the worldwide economic crisis with the recent launch of its unique Volatility Institute. Chaos on Wall Street and Main Street prompted a need for a new, independent source of information for the business community so that its members can more effectively manage risk. The Institute’s laboratory, which gives access to understanding real-time dynamics in the market, serves as a tool for risk managers and regulators by using up-to-the-minute results. The lab measures markets by running hundreds of analyses using scores of centralized data sets.
