Fertitta Veterans ProgramNYU Stern recognizes the significant transition our veterans face in going from the military to business school. And, thanks to a generous contribution from alumnus Lorenzo (MBA ’93) and brother Frank J. Fertitta III, we established the Fertitta Veterans Program in 2016 to support that transition.
The Fertitta Veterans Program is an intensive summer program, and military students who are accepted into the program are eligible to receive the Fertitta Veterans Scholarship. Students who qualify for veterans benefits, including Yellow Ribbon funding, will continue to be eligible to receive those benefits. Military veterans and active-duty students who are not awarded the Fertitta Scholarship can still participate in the summer program.
Program ContentThe uniquely designed summer session takes place over six weeks in July and August and includes:
- 2 core academic courses (6 credits total): Statistics & Data Analysis, Accounting
- Career development and leadership activities
- Corporate visits
- Alumni engagement & networking sessions
- Social activities
