"I was amazed by the many social sector tracks and interests at Stern and within the Social Enterprise Association (SEA). The school brings together students from myriad social-sector backgrounds such as education, microfinance, renewable energy, CSR and economic development; while the SEA and Office of Career Development cultivate a wide range of speakers and relationships for exciting post-MBA career opportunities across the social sector."
