RSVP, Ticketing, and Name Cards

RSVP Information and Tickets to Stern's MBA and PhD Convocation

Electronic tickets are required for all candidates and their guests. All eligible graduates were able to request a maximum of five (5) e-tickets online during the RSVP period (March 9 - April 4), which includes one (1) candidate ticket. After reviewing RSVPs and the ticket inventory, we determined that each graduate who RSVP'd will automatically be granted one (1) additional ticket

Instructions on Accessing Your E-Tickets
Candidates will access and manage e-tickets by visiting the Ticketmaster Account Manager website. Graduates must create a new account with their Stern Net ID email address. To create a new account, visit the Sign In page and click “New to Ticketmaster? Sign Up.”

Transferring E-Tickets to Your Guests
The venue has also created a step-by-step video explainer to transfer tickets via TicketMaster Account Manager.

Candidates/guests may download the MSG App on mobile devices to access/manage e-tickets. Once the app is downloaded, candidates/guests can use their Account Manager login to access their account (no need to create a new account; use the Ticketmaster login). 

Important reminders:

  • Don’t forget to keep one (1) ticket for yourself! Graduates will need an e-ticket to enter the venue. Candidate tickets and guest tickets are the same.
  • Screenshots of tickets will not be accepted.
  • Seating: Graduates will be seated in the front orchestra. All guest tickets are general admission and seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. 
  • Extra Tickets: A limited number of extra tickets will be available while supplies last. Email
  • Prohibition of Ticket Sales: NYU strictly prohibits the direct or indirect sale or auction of Stern MBA and PhD Convocation tickets. Ticket(s) may not be used for advertising, promotion (including contests, giveaways, or sweepstakes) or other trade or commercial purposes. Graduates engaging in such activities, as well as any other activity that disrupts the administration of the ceremony and/or violates any NYU student conduct policy, will be subject to NYU disciplinary sanctions, including without limitation the delayed issuance of a degree or diploma.

Name Card Distribution: In addition to a candidate e-ticket, graduates will also need to bring their name card, which will be required to cross the stage on-site on May 19. Name cards will be distributed by Stern administrators on the following dates/times:
