Excerpt from Clear Admit-- “‘My first exposure to life at Stern was through the school’s Fertitta Veterans Program. The program is designed for US military veterans and active duty students to support their transition to business school. Through the program, all of the veterans take two classes together (accounting and statistics) during the summer before the first year of the MBA program. During the program, we also had the opportunity to visit the offices of companies such as JP Morgan, Boston Consulting Group, and Google. Students who are accepted into the program are eligible to receive the Fertitta Veterans Scholarship. I’m incredibly grateful to alumnus Lorenzo (MBA ’93) and his brother Frank J. Fertitta III for their generous gift which established the program, and their recognition of the value veterans bring to the workforce.’”
