MCC Alumni

We encourage Media, Culture, and Communication alumni to join the MCC Alumni Network to stay informed about opportunities to connect professionally with other alumni and to stay engaged with the department.

The MCC Alumni Network is designed to provide current MCC students the opportunity to connect with alumni through a structured framework of advisement, mentorship, and career programming led by alumni volunteers. The network also strives to create a sense of purpose and community among MCC alumni.

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, Mashable, 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.
