Stern partners with international universities to deliver DBi courses. The 3-credit intensive courses include 8-10 full days of required programming, while the 1.5-credit intensive courses include 4-5 days.
Classes (i.e., lectures, discussions, and special speakers) are led by the academic faculty at the partner institution. Lectures may be augmented by visits to both large and small companies, as well as by industry and government speakers who relate to the students the role of cultural influences and country-specific topics, challenges, and opportunities. Academic deliverable requirements vary by program and are equivalent to a Stern course in academic rigor, contact hours and workload. The course work concludes with a final project, assignment or paper graded by the host school faculty. The intensive, international course also includes visits to local cultural or social events.
Language of Instruction: All DBi sessions are taught in English.
Students may apply up to 6 credits of DBi towards their Global Business Specialization.
For specific DBi programs:
January and May DBi course credits fall outside of the semester and, therefore, do not count for the Fall or Spring semester credit load limits: 15 for full-time students and 9 for part-time. Credit overload or acceleration approval is not required for these DBi courses.Thanksgiving (November) and Spring Break (March) DBi course credits are within the semester and, therefore, are included in the credit maximums for that semester. See DBi Registration Overview.
Students are not permitted to enroll in a DBi course and another course (e.g., other NYU course, Langone Intensive or Summer Module) that have overlapping class sessions.
Attendance and full participation is essential to the experiential learning for intensive, international programs. All students must attend all required sessions which may include lectures, speaker sessions and corporate visits. Attendance will be taken at every session on every day of the program. Required sessions are marked on the syllabus and reviewed at the Pre-Departure Class.
Due to the importance to the learning experience, failure to attend or arriving late to a required session will result in a lower final grade for the course.
The following grade deduction will be in effect for missed sessions:
Each course has a mandatory Pre-Departure Class at Stern before the on-site abroad location portion of the course. This class is considered the first mandatory session of the course. Details and logistics of the course as well as emergency protocols are covered at this meeting. The student is responsible for all information covered at this meeting. Study groups, if required, will be formed and course deliverable are reviewed. The course syllabus contains the dates, schedule and program details.
Students who are unable to attend the Pre-departure Class will not be permitted to participate in the DBi program.
All students must sign and abide by the DBi Travel Code of Conduct & Responsibilities while on the program as well as comply with the Code of Conduct for both New York University and the Stern School of Business.
All students who participate in the “Doing Business in…” (DBi) Program are expected to maintain the highest standards of professional conduct and integrity.
