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 learning, which brings together teams of students and faculty to solve real, complex business challenges. Last year alone nearly 600 students participated in one of 30+ Stern Solutions courses or projects in a variety of industries.
