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.
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.
