NYU Stern Fashion & Luxury MBA students spend their first semester engaging with top NYC brands
The summer curriculum also included a Stern Solutions experiential learning project with The Met. Through Stern Solutions projects, MBA students work with faculty and alongside corporate partners to tackle actual business challenges in real time. Over the past three years, the number of MBAs overall participating in Stern Solutions projects has increased by more than 160 percent.
Throughout the summer, students also engaged with members of the NYU Stern Fashion & Luxury Council and recent alums currently working in the industry to learn about the impactful role of business in fashion.
