NYU Stern MBA Highlights Sustainability at Stern in Clear Admit Alumni Profile

Reid Velo (MBA ‘19) and current consultant at BCG shared his Stern experience in an alumni profile for Clear Admit. He spoke of his approach to building tri-sector capability at the intersection of the business, government, and social sectors through the Stern MBA program. 

On recognizing the value in the social sector, Velo says  “...It was Stern’s Center for Sustainable Business (CSB), led by Tensie Whelan, which helped me to see HOW sustainability and profits are not mutually exclusive, despite what Milton Friedman’s half-century-old thesis has led many to believe. Through sustainability-focused courses, case competitions, and events (like the flagship CSB Annual Practice Forum, which attracts big-hitters from across the globe), I was equipped with a network and a tool chest for how to approach my work. Thanks to Professor Whelan and the CSB team, the Stern MBA is arguably the best for sustainability.”
