Career development resources are an essential part of your graduate studies. Professional networking begins with the Heyman Center’s own supportive community of fundraising and grantmaking professionals. In the classroom you establish a network of your peers—many of whom are already making significant professional contributions to the field—and learn from a faculty of active practitioners. All graduate students are invited to take the continuing education seminar Career Tracks in Fundraising and Philanthropy. This free program is taught by recruitment specialists in the fundraising field. In addition to the seminar, you receive two half-hour coaching sessions to discuss your career goals.
You also benefit from the Center’s strong affiliations with New York City’s philanthropic community through credit-based internship opportunities with organizations such as Amnesty International, CCS Fundraising, Morgan Stanley Community Affairs, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and the World Federation of United Nations Associations. Student groups, such as the Networking Club and the Fundraising Student Association, provide opportunities to foster connections with students and faculty members. PhilanthropyNYU, a student-run online journal, brings the scholarly work of students in the master’s program to the larger philanthropic community.
Wasserman Center for Career Development
NYU-SCPS graduate students also can acquire career guidance from the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development. Services help students take advantage of the University's New York City location and the internship and professional opportunities it offers. The Center posts job listings; connects students with alumni and mentors; counsels students on interviewing skills; and offers career advice.
