NYU Stern’s Professional Development & Career Education (PDCE) team works with faculty, alumni, and leading industry partners to develop programs that help students explore careers, prepare for recruitment and professional environments, and connect to Stern alumni and industry professionals.

is a series of alumni led "TED-style" talks that help first-year students explore twelve of the most popular areas of business including marketing, finance,technology, and entertainment. This program is part of the Cohort Leadership Program.


NYU Stern professional clubs and organizations allow Stern students to explore their interests by learning from their peers and engaging directly with alumni and professionals through workshops and social events. Stern's pre-professional clubs represent areas ranging from marketing and finance to analytics and social impact. Clubs not only promote the wide range of career interests but also support diverse communities including women, LGBTQ, underrepresented minorities, and international students.

NYU Stern Peer Mentors are upperclassmen with knowledge and experience in a wide range of popular industries including fintech, entertainment, finance, marketing, and accounting, to name a few. Peer mentors are available to meet with students who are still exploring their options. Students can connect with a peer mentor in person during the academic year and by making a video-chat appointment during the summer with one of the summer mentors.


The Professional Development Series (PDS) provides first-years, sophomores, and juniors at NYU Stern with critical resources for professional development. The PDS is a semester-long series that introduce students to the essential personal and professional skills that are necessary to compete for internships and full-time jobs. Students will learn how to develop a personal brand, how to convey their personal brand in a resume and interview, and how to network. In each session, firm representatives discuss these relevant topics and share their personal stories.

The Case Walk-Through Series is a program led by corporate partners like Goldman Sachs and Unilever that helps students get a flavor of the day-to-day tasks and projects of a certain industry by walking through a client case.

Technical training programs provide our students more in-depth training and insights into specific careers by collaborating with leading industry partners. Training the Street, for example, is a one-day session partnered with Wells Fargo that helps students learn the ins and outs of financial modeling. Our Consulting Bootcamp and Crash Course break down the steps needed for students to be successful in consulting case interviews.



Alumni Career Engagement connects NYU Stern undergraduates with NYU alumni to provide students with career advice in a speed networking format.

Professionals in Residence brings industry professionals to Stern to meet with students for short one-on-one coffee chat appointments. Students get advice from resume tips to how to navigate specific industries.
