How do you Recruit On-Campus When You Aren’t Allowed On-Campus?

By Scott Cairns

I know the experience NYU WANTS for you when they advertise “On-Campus” Recruiting: Company sponsored coffee chats, networking events at the Wasserman Center, and little bowls of Lifesavers on every available surface (a surely sizeable budget line item that was likely easily cut during the COVID-times). In fact, my first job out of undergraduate as a member of the NYU CAS Class of 2015 was a result of exactly this experience. Knowing I wanted just such a career pivot and that NYU had the infrastructure to make it happen was a small…ok, I concede a very large part of why I chose to return to Stern nearly five years later in the Spring of 2020.…

Behind the Scenes: Passport Day 2022

The Stern International Committee’s premier event – Passport Day was held on April 14, 2022, after a pandemic-induced break of three years.

Stern Descends on Breckenridge for an Epic Ski Trip

By Guillaume Bouyoux and Anna Garrison

In the final days of winter break, over 180 Sternies took over Breckenridge, Colorado in honor of snow sports and mountain festivities. Friends reconnected, bankers and consultants re-emerged from interviews (or wrapped up final interviews in the early morning hours of Mountain Standard Time), hot tubs overflowed, skiers and snowboarders carved up Peaks 6-10,  and the TBar will never be the same. The week started with excellent groomed conditions, but things really picked up with Tuesday’s fresh powder dump which started around midnight and continued all day. Sternies flexed their unique interpretations of ski attire on the trip’s Costume Day (shoutout to the zebra, piñata, fairies, and the all-neon getups).…

“Ocean fire,” as described by my partner (pictured)

Every year around October I can expect a massive group text from my family inviting me to the annual thanksgiving dinner at Aunt Amany’s house. Though my generation is the first born in America, our Thanksgiving is mostly similar to a conventional one – lots of family, lots of food, football on TV, kids on their cellphones and mother-in-laws critiquing their son’s wives, discussing how the season feels uncharacteristically warm again (trend anyone?).

This year, my partner and I decided to do something different – go to Mexico and avoid the whole thing.…

OppyArts Spotlight: Ernest Brockenberry

Welcome to another installment of OppyArts Spotlight, where the Oppy highlights exceptional artists navigating the Corona environment, showcases their creative process, and searches for ways for MBA students to get involved in their local arts communities. This month’s feature is Brooklyn-based musician Ernest Brockenberry.

Ernest started releasing music in 2019, culminating with the release of his first EP “Cruel Alchemy.” He started performing in early 2020 before the pandemic shifted the course of the world. While last year presented countless challenges to artists and the general public, the year allowed Ernest to build dedication to his music, his vision, and his image of himself as an artist.…
