Professional Development Programs

NYU Stern’s Office of Student Engagement (OSE) works with faculty, alumni, and leading industry partners to develop programs that help students explore careers, prepare for recruitment and professional environments, and connect to Stern alumni and industry professionals. OSE programs complement the career and recruiting services offered at the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development.








Stern Talks a series of alumni led "TED-style" talks that help freshmen explore twelve of the most popular areas of business including Marketing, Finance, Technology, and Entertainment. This program is part of the Cohort Leadership Program.
 28 NYU Stern Clubs & Affinity Groups allow Stern students to explore their interests by learning from their peers and engaging directly with alumni and professionals through workshops and social events.
Stern's pre-professional clubs represent areas ranging from marketing and finance to analytics and social impact. Clubs not only promote the wide range of career interests but also support diverse communities including women, LGBTQ, underrepresented minorities, and international students.



Professional Development Series brings firms like Google, PwC, and Bank of America to campus to lead engaging workshops for freshmen and sophomores that provide the essential personal and professional skills that are necessary to compete for internships and full-time jobs. Topics include professional dress, personal branding, networking, resumes, technical interview tips.
Case Walk-Through Series is a program also led by corporate partners like Goldman Sachs and Unilever that help students get a flavor of the day-to-day tasks and projects of a certain industry by walking through a client case.
Technical training programs provide our students more in-depth training and insights into specific careers by collaborating with leading industry partners. Training the Street is a one-day session partnered with Wells Fargo that helps students learn the ins and outs of financial modeling. Our Consulting Bootcamp and Crash Course break down the steps needed for students to be successful in consulting case interviews.


Alumni Career Engagement connects NYU Stern undergraduates with NYU alumni to provide students with career advice in a speed networking format.
