Dinner with Six

Dinner with Six is a new initiative co-hosted by NYU Global Alumni Programs and the NYU Shanghai Career Development Center that launched in April 2016. The dinner series invites students into nearby restaurants for a casual and relaxed meal. This small dinner party brings everyone together in a warm, friendly environment for good food, conversation, and camaraderie.

For students, it's an opportunity to eat a free, delicious meal, meet new friends, and make valuable connections. Aside from the free food and fun, Dinner with Six provides students a space to network with NYU alumni who work and live in Asia and meet and socialize with other students. In its inaugural year, 6 NYU alumni hosted 6 dinners in locations around Shanghai.

 

Student participants were full of positive comments from the experience:

It's a great opportunity for students to step out of their comfort zones and get more comfortable with networking with professionals.

The talk we conducted during the dinner was really thought-provoking and I learned a lot about the questions I'm concerned with.

The alumna was awesome and she talked a lot about her experience, failures and success.
