Around the turn of the century, New York City was first beginning to take on some of the features that would make it known as The City That Never Sleeps. Already an industrial center, it was becoming the world capital of commerce and attracting immigrants from around the world who dreamed of striking it rich. In 1900, New York University opened the metropolis's first business school, which would provide children of immigrants the education to surpass the wealth of their parents.
Now the Stern School of Business has a top-15 undergraduate program and highly ranked full-time, part-time, and executive MBA programs. Relatively few applicants are accepted, but the old Sinatra adage applies: If you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere. Most students travel just two miles upon graduation for careers on Wall Street. Renowned for its size, fast pace, and competitiveness, the Stern School of Business continues to mirror the city's business community that it has educated for more than 100 years.
