Applying Classroom Lessons to Real-World ChallengesAt CSB, we encourage students to build on what they learn in the classroom to develop innovative business solutions that address our most difficult global challenges. To do so, MBA students have the opportunity to participate in case competitions both at NYU and beyond. Recent accomplishments by NYU student teams include:
In 2020, a group of NYU Stern and Wagner graduate students took first place in the 2020 Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge. The team proposed an innovative new exchange-traded fund centered around companies with substantial hiring, skills development, and supply chain policies in favor of refugees.
In 2019, a group of Stern MBA students took third place in the Aspen Institute Business and Society International Case Competition. This marks the third year in a row that Stern made it the finals, having won first place in the competition in 2018 and placing third in 2017. Stern also previously won the competition in 2013. The 2019 team developed a proposal for the Connecticut Green Bank and its affiliated non-profit that would allow both organizations to become financially sustainable while achieving their missions of providing clean energy and energy efficiency programs to Connecticut citizens.
