MCC Alumni

We encourage Media, Culture, and Communication alumni to maintain connections to each other and the Department. Every year the Department hosts its Alumni Media Career Panel. Let us know if you'd like to share your expertise with students by emailing alumni-mcc@nyu.edu

For those seeking employment or a career transition, the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development provides NYU alumni with their career and job-search needs—for life. Subscribe to Wasserman's alumni newsletter in CareerNet for relevant events and job alerts. 

New York University was named the best school for media professionals by LinkedIn, in large part because of the success of MCC graduates. Our alumni work for companies and organizations such as Viacom, Buzzfeed, Ogilvy & Mather, Simon and Schuster, ESPN, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures, The New York Times, Capitol Music Group, the United Nations, The BBC, Nielsen, Condé Nast, among many others.
