Orientation Programs

At NYU Stern, we inspire our students to think big. As part of NYU's Global Network University, we spur students to think broadly about the ever-changing dynamic of business and its impact on the world around us. We encourage students to consider their role at Stern and to grasp the unparalleled opportunities at their fingertips.

Upon their arrival at Stern, students will encounter our innovative programming uniquely designed to challenge prior experiences. Stern MBA students will immediately engage in a conversation that questions basic assumptions about business school and the role of business within society. During their time at Stern, we at the Office of Student Engagement will partner with students to continually explore this dialogue. With their newly discovered perspective, it is then up to them to drive their next chapter and begin their journey.

Welcome to NYU Stern.

LAUNCH

 

LAUNCH

 

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. Past LAUNCH programs have featured an all-star roster of luminaries, including Sallie Krawcheck, Cory Booker, Maria Bartiromo, and NYU President Andy Hamilton, in addition to 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. The dates and times are to be announced. This is a required session part of LAUNCH programming. Please contact the Global Education at intl@stern.nyu.edu for any questions regarding the international student welcome.

Students can visit the LAUNCH website to learn about what to expect for Orientation.

We know that as working professionals, our students' time is at a premium, and choosing to pursue a Stern MBA while balancing a career is no small feat.

Fertitta Program Welcome

 

Fertitta

 

Students will spend the beginning of their Stern MBA program building a foundation for a transformational two-year experience at the Fertitta Program Welcome. 

NYU Stern recognizes the significant transition our veterans face in going from the military to business school. The Fertitta Veterans MBA Program is specifically designed for U.S. military veterans and active duty students to support their transition to business school – financially, academically and professionally.

The Program Welcome that takes place in July is the first part of the Fertitta MBA Orientation experience. Students will then join the rest of the Full-time MBA cohort during LAUNCH.
