Beyond the MBA Classroom: NYU Stern’s Charity Poker Tournament

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 NYU Stern Student Corporation (SCorp), Stern’s annual Texas Hold’em Charity Poker Tournament, typically held in the fall, is open to full- and part-time MBA students (both graduate and undergraduate) and to Stern alumni, faculty, staff and administration. Proceeds are donated to a local charity. The 2012 tournament, described by students we interviewed as a smaller-scale event than in years past, raised approximately $500 to support Let’s Get Ready, an organization that assists high school students in preparing for college. Said a second year with whom we spoke, “This was the first Stern Charity Poker tournament since 2010, and we’re happy to have set the stage for an even bigger and better event next year.”
