This fall, the NYU Stern Corporate Relations team hosted a Private Equity virtual forum featuring alumni Gary Survis (MBA ‘92) operating partner, Insight Partners, and Whitney Rothe (MBA ‘13), senior director, marketing, Insight Onsite at Insight Partners. The goal was to offer MBA students an intimate forum to learn firsthand about careers in private equity, with a focus on marketing and sustainability. Gary shared his unique career arc and how he approaches recruiting and his role within Insight Partners. Whitney, who works closely with Gary, offered his perspective on how effectiveness, efficiency and outlook is the core of their approach and marketers are the tip of the spear of revenue generation.

Each year the Corporate Relations team puts together forums focused on areas where Stern has a growing alumni presence and MBAs have an interest in learning more about, such as asset management, healthcare and fintech. Companies can partner with Stern in a variety of ways including recruiting Stern students, sponsoring a Stern Solutions project that offers students a chance to solve a pressing business challenge in real time, and sharing career insights at MBA industry and affinity clubs during workshops and panels.
