NYU Stern School of Business Alumni Network

The NYU Stern experience is a global one. Not only do our students and alumni come from diverse international backgrounds, we also believe in harnessing the energy of global hubs allowing them to expand their international network of valuable peers and contacts. 


With nearly 110,000 NYU Stern alumni living and working in 138 countries, there is hardly a major industry anywhere that does not include Stern graduates in its ranks. NYU Stern alumni constitute a global community, providing advice and networking opportunities to fellow alumni and current students.
