    • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible - have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • FINDING NEW COURSES
    • If you see a course in HEC's Fall or Spring Course catalogs that you would like to take, but it is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Exchanges & Special Programs team for approval.

    • If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend individual Academic Advising sessions with the International Programs team to plan and revise your schedule.
    • If a course is already listed here as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.
