Global Study Tour Courses
Enhance direct international business exposure with global study experiences in dynamic contemporary markets around the world.
As a student, you will participate in a Global Study Tour during each year of the program. Global Study Tour destinations are carefully selected by Stern faculty and administration with a focus on relevant business trends and current events. Your second-year destination will typically be very different from your first, allowing you to compare different dynamic contemporary market economies.
Study in International Markets
From Latin America to the Middle East and AsiaRecent classes have studied in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Some of the countries visited include Argentina, Russia, Estonia, Turkey, the UAE, China and India. While abroad, you will participate in meetings and in-depth discussions with leaders of industry, financial institutions and government organizations.
As an example, some highlights from the May 2011 China study tour included a variety of meetings with executives in Shanghai and Beijing, including Li & Fung, General Motors, Luis Vuitton, Walmart, Intel, the NBA, CSCEC, and CITIC. The EMBA class also enjoyed an excursion to The Great Wall of China, a networking lunch with local NYU Stern alumni, and a networking evening with Chinese executives from CITIC on the top floor of the exclusive Capital Mansion.
Most overseas costs associated with the two Global Study Tours, such as accommodations and meals, are included in the program tuition. Students are responsible for their own round-trip airfare to and from the program destination and other nominal expenses.
