PhD Academics Tina 724x285
NYU Stern's doctoral students constitute a small, but highly dynamic and diverse community of scholars in training who thrive in an atmosphere of intellectual rigor, collaboration and support. Students come from diverse cultural, educational and professional backgrounds, but all of them share a passion for asking and answering important questions.

The small size of the program and culture of mutual support fosters close-knit, supportive friendships among colleagues. Meanwhile, the wider community of NYU and New York City provides almost limitless avenues for PhD students to explore individual interests.
