“I expected our ‘Leadership in Organization’ course to involve tough readings and lots of theory, but instead Prof. Nate Pettit encouraged the cohort to "play the game" and put every concept into practice. We were presented us with challenging situations that made it hard to recognize ourselves and our behaviors. Moreover, the entire cohort had to collaborate on a solution for each case.”

“I wanted to be challenged in a new way. My thirst for knowledge led me to a career in journalism; now, it’s propelled me to learn more about business. Business operations are central to life and it’s difficult to truly understand how the world functions without understanding how business leaders analyze, strategize, and make decisions. I have furthered my pursuit by engaging with Stern’s network and supporting Stern’s Diversity & Inclusion work."

"The NYU Stern curriculum is not just formulas and an appeal to understand consensus or the status quo. It's about making business leaders think about the entire picture and have a well-rounded view of business, the economy, and life."

"I chose Stern's EMBA program for its foundational business curriculum since my training and career had been on the technical side. I really enjoyed the ‘Foundations of Entrepreneurship’ course with Prof. Glenn Okun for his engaging and entertaining teaching style and real-world experience, creating a deeper understanding of how to develop a sound business plan, focus pre- and post-launch, and what investors look for to make decisions."

“After Year 1 of the EMBA program, I held a stronger grasp of what and where I wanted to take my career professionally. The ‘Turnaround, Restructuring, and Distressed Investments’ course with Prof. Joseph Sarachek offered finance, leadership, strategy, and entrepreneurship which, combined with my expertise as a physician in the healthcare industry, helped position myself to firms seeking to invest in various areas of healthcare.
