Business with Purpose
Fostering positive social change with financially sustainable business.
Julian Miller, MBA 2018
"Stern's setting in the heart of New York City has opened many doors ... One experience that I am particularly thankful for was being able to intern on the Hillary for America campaign during the fall semester because of the campaign's close proximity to campus."
