The Power of Business to Transform Challenges into Opportunities

LAUNCH kicks off the Stern MBA experience, inspiring our incoming MBA students on their journey to become informed global citizens — future business leaders who create impact in organizations and produce creative business solutions to important problems.


Culture of Inclusion, Understanding & Professional Trust

Stern is committed to building a diverse, inclusive and collaborative community in which students put others first, listen to truly understand each other’s lived experiences and give each other the benefit of the doubt.  A key goal of LAUNCH is for students to view these norms as integral, not supplemental, to the Stern experience.
