Community

Langone MBA students are part of a vibrant community of working professionals within the wider Stern community. To ensure a close knit community, Stern has a student orientation and cohort (Block) system and offers a range of student government and club activities.

Orientation and the Cohort/Block system
At the mandatory Langone LAB orientation, incoming Langone MBA students join their cohorts (Blocks) for the first time. Langone students are organized into blocks (consisting of around 60 students) and elect two block leaders to represent them and help organize community-building activities. Block leaders also work with Academic Affairs to help share program information with their groups. As a student, you will typically take your first core classes with your Block.

Upcoming Langone LAB dates are posted here.

Student Clubs and Government
Despite demanding schedules and multiple responsibilities, Langone MBAs participate and take on leadership roles in the over 40 professional, affinity, and special interest clubs at Stern. Langone Student Government (LSG) works within the Stern Student Government (SGov) to represent the interests of Langone Part-time MBA students, strengthen community ties, and to promote their involvement in all aspects of Stern life.

Langone Retreat is an annual event orchestrated by the Langone Student Government. Langone Retreat typically takes place during early October in Hawley, Penn., at Woodloch Resort. It's a fun-filled weekend to give new and returning classmates the opportunity to bond over a scavenger hunt, costume party, and other activities provided on site. 

Stern Partners Committee
The Stern Partners Committee, one of the SGov Committees, provides support, resources, and organized activities for students with partners and/or families.

Alumni
Langone students and alumni also benefit from access to Stern’s global alumni community, which includes 110,000 members in 138 countries, with 70 percent of alums currently living in the tri-state area. 


Diversity

NYU Stern is dedicated to a diverse and inclusive environment and seeks to celebrate differences in background and opinions in our learning environment and community.

Underrepresented Minorities 
The Association of Hispanic and Black Business Students (AHBBS) is a student organization devoted to enhancing the NYU Stern student experience through professional development, community building and social networking.  AHBBS is open to all Stern students who share an interest in business programs that relate to Black and Hispanic cultures.

Stern partners with these organizations dedicated to fostering diversity in business leadership:

Women
At NYU Stern, you will have support for your goals from one of the strongest women's networks of all business schools. The student-run Stern Women in Business (SWIB) hosts career networking, professional development, and community service and social events for Stern's female community. The annual SWIB conference draws more than 400 Stern students, alumnae, and professionals from the New York City area.

Stern is a member of the Forté Foundation, a consortium of top business schools and companies dedicated to directing talented women toward leadership roles in business.

Women Faculty
Representing 20 percent of the Stern faculty, female professors play a critical role in the School's success and teach some of the most popular, well-respected classes. See what our faculty members are up to here.

LGBTQ
New York City has always been on the forefront of LGBTQ rights and issues. Like the City, Stern welcomes and embraces the diversity of our community.

Stern's LGBTQ community club, OutClass, serves as a professional, educational, and social forum for LGBTQ students and hosts a number of student events each year (e.g., panels, workshops, socials). Each year, Stern students attend the Reaching Out MBA Conference, an annual gathering of LGBTQ graduate business school students from all over the world. The conference provides a forum to build personal and professional networks.

In addition, there is also the NYU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Student Center which creates a welcoming environment for all University students and faculty interested in developing their understanding of LGBTQ issues. Support services, resources, programs, advocacy, training, education, and consultation are provided to members of the NYU community.

Military
The Military Veterans Club (MVC) provides networking opportunities to military veterans (e.g., panels, workshops, socials) and exposes other students to military-style leadership.

Yellow Ribbon Program
NYU Stern is pleased to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program is available to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who are 100 percent eligible for the new Post 9/11 GI Bill. During the 2019-2020 academic year, Stern will contribute awards of up to $10,000 per academic year to eligible MBA students.

Career


Please note that in-person CCWP programming may be affected by Covid-19. Please reach out to sternmba@stern.nyu.edu with any questions.

As the Part-time MBA program is not intended for students looking to make a career transition, career services offered to our part-time students are intended to support students while in their current roles. Career services are provided by the Career Center for Working Professionals (CCWP).   All Stern alumni also receive career support from this office.

The Career Center for Working Professionals (CCWP) offers you:
  • Lifetime career coaching services
  • Virtual and in-person event offerings
  • Hundreds of job postings exclusive to Stern's working professionals

Students in the Weeknight and Saturday Options have the opportunity to interview for limited full-time positions during their final year in the program if they meet the CCWP requirements.  It is important to note that these requirements are considerable and demand a significant amount of time. Due to the accelerated schedule, Part-time MBA students pursuing the Accelerated program option do not have access to on-campus recruiting of any kind.
