New School Alumni Land on Forbes 2018 ’30 Under 30′

Forbes 30 Under 30 2018 edition features “600 young stars . . . with a burning desire of youth to reinvent the world.”

Once again this year, graduates of the progressive New York City univeristy — scholars, artists, and designers who courageously lead creative innovation — secured spots on 30 Under 30. This marks the seventh time in a row that The New School has been represented on the prestigious annual list.

In addition, Forbes named several “All-Star Alumni” — previous 30 Under 30’s — to this year’s list. They include New Schoolers who either graduated from or studied at The New School:

  • Carly Cushnie, BFA Fashion Design ’07 / Art & Style – All-Star Alumni
  • Leandra Medine, Eugene Lang College / Art & Style – All-Star Alumni
  • Michelle Ochs, BFA Fashion Design ’09 / Art & Style – All-Star Alumni
  • Sophia Sunwoo, BBA Strategic Design & Management ’10 / Social Entrepreneurs – All-Star Alumni

“Selecting these youthful visionaries is a year-round obsession: We vet thousands of nominations, leaning on the collective wisdom of our online community, ace reporters and a panel of A-list judges,” Forbes says. “Now in our seventh year, with a 4,000-strong alumni network that spans the globe, this list continues to spotlight the impressive, the inspiring and the (genuinely) enviable.”
