Meet the Class of 2025

Executive Director, Lindsay LoydLindsay Loyd is the Executive Director for MBA Admissions at NYU Stern. She joined NYU Stern in January 2023 after a 20-year career in financial services.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  Lindsay lives in northern New Jersey with her husband, two daughters, and her rescue dog, Oreo.  In her spare time, you can find her snowboarding with her family, baking a sweet treat, or reading a new novel.

The start of the school year is a period of anticipation and joy for students of all ages. A new year means new possibilities. This is especially true for MBA1s who are returning to school and embarking on a new journey.

For the Admissions team, LAUNCH – NYU Stern’s orientation – is our first chance to see 327 motivated individuals who chose to become our newest Sternies come together as one community. 

We are thrilled to share a little more about the Class of 2025 through the class profile, but the numbers don’t tell the whole story. 

MBA1s bring their knowledge from every conceivable sector of business and society, yet they are so much more than their resumes. We have pilots. Climbers who have summited Mount Kilimanjaro. Former professional musicians and national team athletes. Content creators who’ve had videos and articles go viral. Singers, dancers, bakers, golfers, linguists, and world traveling DJs. 

These folks are passionate in the pursuit of their interests. They amaze us with their range of industry knowledge, their commitment to their academics, their seemingly endless talent, and most importantly, the Sternie spirit that brought them together.

The Admissions team is now in the process of recruiting the next crop of Sternies. For those of you who have already applied, thank you! Interview invitations will be starting before you know it.

For those of you who are still considering us, take a look at the class profile, but also connect with the students behind the numbers and see if NYU Stern is a place where you can see yourself grow. You can connect with our Graduate Ambassadors here

We can’t wait to meet you!
