Save the Date for Fall 2024 Orientation: August 12th-16th, 2024

LAUNCH is our introduction to the NYU Stern MBA experience for all incoming full-time MBA students. Through LAUNCH, we want to transform the mindsets of MBA students, to get them to think broadly about the ways in which business can transform challenges into opportunities to create value for society.


LAUNCH will expose students and their newest cohorts of full-time MBAs to major issues being addressed by big thinkers and transformational leaders in a range of fields. You'll hear from an all-star roster of luminaries, including our world class Stern faculty, industry leaders, and esteemed members of the alumni community. 

Incoming international full-time MBA students must attend the mandatory international student welcome on Friday August 9th, 2024. This is a required session part of LAUNCH programming. Please contact the Global Education department at for any questions regarding the international student welcome.
