Business Curriculum Overview

NYU Stern's BS in Business degree, which the majority of Stern students pursue, provides a strong foundation that spans key business disciplines. You will have the opportunity to specialize in a four-course concentration, and the flexibility to choose from hundreds of liberal arts and elective courses across NYU. Here's a quick snapshot of the Business degree:

First and Sophomore Years

During your first and sophomore years, you will complete foundation courses that span the liberal arts, business, and the beginning of Stern's social impact curriculum. Additionally, you will begin the global sequence with a course in international economics.

Junior and Senior Years

During junior and senior years, you will complete two more courses in the social impact core, a four-course sequence in a business concentration of your choice, and complete the global sequence with our one-of-a-kind International Studies Program.

Throughout the four years, you will:
  • Take elective courses from across NYU to broaden your intellectual experience
  • Have the option to minor or major in the College of Arts and Science, in areas ranging from psychology to fine arts, or pursue minors in Steinhardt, Tisch, or Wagner. 

Additionally, we strongly recommend that you spend at least one semester studying away through one of our study away programs.
