List of New York University alumni

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

New York University (NYU) is one of the world's premier residential research and teaching institutions.[1] This partial list of notable New York University alumni includes a sampling of the many graduates who are leaders in their respective fields, non-graduate former students, fictional students, and current students of New York University. The list is abridged—only a representative few are listed. NYU ranks 7th among the World's top 100 universities for producing millionaires, as compiled by Times Higher Education World University Rankings.[2]

NYU ranks 5th globally among universities with the highest number of alumni worth $30 million or more, as compiled by ABC News.[3] CNBC ranks NYU 4th globally among universities with the most billionaire graduates.[4] National Academy of Inventors ranks NYU 19th in the world based on the number of patents generated.[5] In 2016, a study based on a computerized analysis of the number of times institutions of higher education are mentioned in Wikipedia and the number of times people search for them on Google, ranked NYU #19 among all universities in the world.[6] NYU also is the second top feeder school for analyst careers in finance and investment banking, after University of Pennsylvania, on Wall Street.[7]

In 1973, the New York University School of Engineering and Science merged into Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn,[8][9][10][11][12] which in turn merged into NYU to form New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering in 2014. In 2015, a $100 million gift from Chandrika and Ranjan Tandon for engineering at NYU resulted in the school changing its name to NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
