Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 1999

New York University is an extraordinary school with world-class scholars and researchers, in the heart of Greenwich Village, a vibrant arts and cultural community, in one of the greatest cities in the world. I chose NYU because I wanted to study at that school, in that community, with that high quality of professor and classmate. Sadly, I entered a field where there are virtually no jobs. I have learned in the years since completing my Ph.D. that, generally, one teaching job for a freshly minted Performance Studies Ph.D. appears each year. I did not get that job. At the same time, my years of study were immensely rewarding. I would also say that the fact that I have a Ph.D. opened other job options, just not in academia. I would warn idealistic students to keep in mind the eventual necessity of getting a job, and to make sure their planned degree will be preparing them for that. I have returned to graduate school at Rutgers University to pursue a Master of Social Work, a field which I am excited to enter.

Degree: MPA
Graduation Year: 2020

NYU prepares their students to be future leaders by translating ideas into actions that have an effective and lasting impact on society. This concept inspired me to pursue an MPA degree in Management as it will grant me the tools and flexibility needed to implement strategies that will effectively connect non-profit organization and philanthropic associations with businesses.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience at NYU Stern was unique, fun, and enlightening. Starting with the classes, I specialized in finance and management and really enjoyed the electives I took. Stern's finance curriculum is very strong with classes on different topics including private equity, venture capital, the financial services industry, and restructuring/bankruptcy. The professors are engaging and committed to helping you learn. Regarding the student experience, Stern's MBA program is centered around collaboration and networking with your classmates. Some of my favorite experiences include the fashion show that raises money for Stern student entrepreneurs, spring break in Morocco with 40 of my classmates, and casually grabbing a meal with friends in the East Village. These were some of the fun experiences that allowed me to really bond with my class. Lastly, many people come to Stern for the access it gives you career-wise and the impact it can have on future earning potential. While at Stern, I was able to intern in investment banking over the summer, and post-graduation, I will begin my career within the finance division at a global technology company. These are professional experiences that would have been difficult to attain without a MBA, and I'm grateful to Stern for providing me with this career access and intellectual capital that will stay with me for life. If you are looking for a great education as well as an experience that will help you develop as a person and leader, I would definitely recommend considering Stern for your MBA.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2019

Tisch is an amazing place to study design for stage and film. I came into the program with a fair amount of experience designing and working in electrics in New York City, and wasn't sure how edifying a graduate program would be for me. I've found that I've developed as an individual and as an artist in the program, and feel much more confident about my career path after graduating.

Degree: Statistics
Graduation Year: 2019

As someone who loves statistics and research this program is the perfect combination of applied statistics. The professors are all very knowledgable and helpful, and the courses are intriguing and thought provoking. Although, I am still in my first year of the program I feel that this degree will help me in pursuing my future career.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University is a school that has considerable financial backing behind it's name and has the potential to be a very influential degree for your future. The benefits of getting your MS in Biology at NYU is that it is flexible, you have the freedom to work with an advisor in the GSAS department or at another neighboring institution. The classes are difficult and demanding, so it is often difficult to focus on your research, however the professors are available and want to help students succeed. It is not a school that offers a lot of opportunity for grants for it's master's students, so you will likely have to fund your own degree.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

New York University is a renown institution in the heart of the city. Even through an online program, there is a sense of joy and pride as an NYU student, because the reputation associated with the institution is one of honor and community. The school and staff stand for equality, inclusion, and diversity, which gives minorities a voice. The program itself provides a wonderful education and background for students looking to become future speech-language pathologists. I am proud to be a part of this school and its mission!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

NYU has been trying to scale up their engineering program(NYU Tandon) in particular computer science, data science and electrical engineering to do that they have been investing a great amount of money into infrastructure. The facilities are some of the best available on any campus. If you want to make something nyu most likely has it or can provide it for you. The big problem comes with the quality control of Professors as they have tried to scale. There are a number of Professors that are not up to par from what you would expect at a high end engineering school.

Degree: MBA in Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU Wagner School of Public Service was an excellent place to obtain by Master in Public Administration (MPA) with a specialization in Health Policy and Management. Ranked among the best in the country, this program equipped me with the quantitative analysis skill sets I felt I had been lacking in my prior work as a project manager in the public sector. Strategic and performance measurement and management classwork also gave me ample opportunity to develop and reflect on my team work and leadership skills. I highly recommend getting the most out of this education by networking with students, alumni, and professors as much as possible. The more events I attended and the more people I talked to, the more I understood my professional options and clarified my career aspirations. In fact, I acquired my current job through a posting an alumnus made on the NYU Wagner email listserv. MY NYU Wagner education has truly enhanced my career skills and opportunities in the field of public service.
