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 such places as Viacom, Buzzfeed, Ogilvy & Mather, Google, Simon and Schuster, ESPN, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures, The New York Times, Capitol Music Group, the United Nations, The BBC, The World Bank, Nielsen, Condé Nast, among many others. Alumni who continue on an academic trajectory are admitted to top graduate programs.

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. 

The MCC Alumni Network

We encourage alumni to join the MCC Alumni Network, designed to foster a community of alumni who share their ideas and talents with one another by sustaining ongoing conversations and creating meaningful connections.

The MCC Alumni Mentor Program

Alumni engage with current students through the MCC Alumni Mentor Program to guide, shape, inform, and demystify how to establish and advance one's career. Alumni volunteers can opt-in to the Mentor Program when they join the MCC Alumni Network.
