“It’s really common for prospective students looking at the program to ask what happens to our students AFTER they leave the program,” offers SVA’s Products of Design chair Allan Chochinov. “It’s funny, because we’d love to tell them about what we actually do HERE for the two years that they’re with us! But we totally understand that people want to know how the education and the networking we offer them will help launch their professional careers.”
To have some fun addressing the question, the department reached out to recent alumni—asking them to record themselves in their places of work, talking about what they’re up to. And wow, the list of companies, consultancies, and brands is super-impressive. Check out the video below:

(Another wonky but notable feature of the program: It’s now a STEM-Certified MFA Program, meaning that international students are able to apply for a 24-month extension to their 12-month Optional Practical Training student visas post-graduation. A big boon to international applicants!)
