Why did you decide to pursue the focused one-year MBA program?

I love the focused aspect of the Fashion and Luxury MBA. Stern has unparalleled reach into the fashion scene of New York City and beyond, and that's opened doors to meet the industry's leaders worldwide.

How would you describe the culture and community within your class?

The culture and community at Stern can be summed up simply: a team. I quickly felt like old friends with each person in my cohort, and throughout our experience - late nights studying, traveling as a group of 23, exploring NYC - we really became like a family.

Why did you choose NYU Stern?

I chose NYU Stern for a few reasons: its emphasis on EQ, its hyper-focused specializations, and its reach to industries in New York City and beyond. From immersive experiences with some of NYC's great companies to classes taught by industry professionals, my experience has lived up to its expectations.
