WHO WE ARE

Established in 2004 as a pioneering career-based outreach program for MBA students interested in the luxury and retail sectors, the NYU Stern Luxury and Retail Club aims to promote NYU Stern as a premier source of talent and academic leadership in these specific industries. The club now boasts over 1,200 members and has established relationships with some of the most prominent companies and individuals in the luxury and retail space. 

In 2009, NYU Stern introduced the Luxury Marketing specialization, the first of its kind among top-tier business schools. This focus differentiates NYU Stern from other MBA programs and as a club, we collaborate with faculty and industry executives to develop an interdisciplinary curriculum driven by today’s industry leaders.
