This annual event brings back Stern alumni working for companies such as NBCUniversal, The New York Times, The New York Jets and The Walt Disney Company. Students had an exclusive opportunity to speak with executives and managers to learn about different job functions within the entertainment, media and sports industries.
In April, NYU Stern and Columbia Business School hosted the nation’s premiere event for MBA students focusing on the media, entertainment and technology industries. In conjunction with organizations from Colombia, Duke Fuqua, MIT Sloan, Wharton and Kellogg business schools, Stern welcomed keynote speakers Pascal Desroches (Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Turner) and Kathleen Grace (Chief Executive Officer, New Form), as well as dozens of other industry leaders across nine panels. The event was attended by over 200 delegates from NYU Stern, our partner schools and the wider East Coast media and entertainment community.
