NYU Stern in Africa

Established in 2007, Stern in Africa (SiA) is dedicated to providing the Stern and NYU communities increased exposure to business and investment opportunities in Africa and enhancing awareness of Africa’s growing economies. SiA organizes professional, educational, and social events, enabling thought leaders, industry practitioners, and MBA students to promote investments in Africa and highlight the growing economic importance of the continent.


Africa Law Association

The Africa Law Association (ALA) is a vibrant and diverse community of students and faculty that seeks to support, encourage and inspire interest in African laws, societies, cultures, and institutions. Members of the ALA community come together to engage each other in discussion and debate on current legal and political issues and developments in Africa.


Association for African Development

The Association for African Development (AAD) at NYU works towards the advancement of the skills of NYU students by focusing on raising awareness and developing knowledgeable leaders with the intent of promoting African enhancement. We intend on achieving this in part by running a Speakers series with prominent industry and political leaders from across the continent presenting on the growing opportunities in a quickly transforming Africa.


African Students’ Union

The African Students’ Union is a cultural club created by Africans and dedicated to the exploration and preservation of African culture within the continent through meetings and events. While our club focuses on African culture, we welcome people of all backgrounds who have any interest in the continent. The African Students’ Union exists to provide a means for the meaningful discussion, exploration, and celebration of all things – politically, socially, and culturally African. We want to create an environment on campus where people who are educated on African topics or wish to be can come together to have fun, discuss and enjoy a variety of African dishes.

Ethiopian Eritrean Student Association
The Ethiopian Eritrean Student Association aspires to promote Ethiopian and Eritrean culture throughout NYU. The club welcomes people from any background and hopes to raise awareness about the rich history of Habesha people through both social and cultural events. All students are of course welcome to our events, especially East African students from countries like Somalia and Kenya! In addition, the association also aims to strengthen the bond between Ethiopian and Eritrean students as well as their relationship to NYU by creating a presence on campus. We aim to extend this relationship outside the confines of campus and into New York City as well, creating and straightening liaisons with alumni, nearby universities, and local East African businesses.”
