Connecting with alumni in New York

On 31 May 2018, Nyenrode in close cooperation with the American Friends of Nyenrode hosted an Alumni Event on Manhattan aimed at bringing students, faculty and staff in contact with Nyenrode alumni living and working in New York.

Global Immersion Program

The Alumni Event in New York was part of one of the most distinctive features of the Full-time MSc in Management: the Global Immersion Program. A one-week study trip abroad organized in cooperation with leading companies in the region.

For New York this meant that the Financial Management track students would attend company visits and work on real-life business cases provided by senior representatives of Société Générale, Moelis & Co and Atlantic Investment Management.

American Friends of Nyenrode

With over 500 Nyenrode alumni in North-America, the American Friends of Nyenrode, play an essential role in maintaining and expanding the local Nyenrode community. Its main goal is to support the university’s educational purposes, raise funds for revolving scholarships and co-host events that allow Nyenrode alumni to meet with current students and faculty.

The importance of connecting

The Alumni Event took place at the Monarch Rooftop Lounge overlooking central Manhattan and with an inspiring view on the famous Empire State Building. During the evening current Full-time MSc in Management students meet with Nyenrode alumni from different ages and backgrounds, who shared their professional experience of working in New York and provided valuable advice to those students who want to follow the same career path.
