The 200+ full-time members of Stern’s faculty include two Nobel laureates, current and past presidents of academic associations, editorial board members of most leading research journals, award-winning authors, and scores of scholars whose research and teaching skills are recognized worldwide. Stern’s faculty is also one of the most international of the leading business schools, broadening the scope of the PhD experience.
The Chronicle of Higher Education ranked Stern's departments of finance #1, accounting #2, management #6 and marketing #7 in the nation in its 2007 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index; and in a study by UT Dallas, based on research contribution from 2005-2009, NYU Stern was ranked #3 in the world for its research productivity in all A-level business journals.
In addition to research excellence, the size and wide-ranging interests of the Stern faculty mean that no matter what a student’s own research interest may be, or what it may become, there will likely be Stern faculty who share that interest and can provide training and guidance in its pursuit. Students and faculty collaborate intensively on research projects, often forming close, long-lasting bonds in the process.
