Beyond the MBA Classroom: Know When to Hold’em at NYU Stern

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Hosted by the Stern Student Corporation, NYU Stern’s annual Texas Hold’em Charity Poker Tournament is open to full- and part-time MBA students (both graduate and undergraduate) and to Stern alumni, faculty, staff and administration. Each year, proceeds are donated to a local charity. Described by students we interviewed as a fun evening typically attracting more than 750 participants, the tournament raised money in 2010 to support the Red Cross’s efforts in Haiti after the earthquake.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at NYU Stern and 13 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
