Each year, Stern students have the opportunity to start, advise, and invest in real businesses. We call this Stern Solutions, Stern’s approach to experiential education, which brings together teams of students and faculty to solve real, complex business challenges.
Sample Courses & Projects
Stern Consulting Corps (SCC) - Students are matched with blue chip companies as project partners and serve as consultants to analyze and solve a business problem or challenge by applying a structured approach to their analyses.
Branding + Innovation Lab - Solve a critical branding challenge facing a prominent multinational organization.
Tech and the City - Learn about product market fit and how VCs evaluate potential investments while engaging with a technology startup.
NYU Impact Investment Fund (NIIF) - A unique interdisciplinary experiential education course, in which students learn about impact investing by sourcing and conducting due diligence on firms operating in the selected impact domain space.
