Short-Term Immersions

Discover academic enrichment through coursework and travel.

Stern Around the World short-term immersion programs allows students to immerse themselves in the local culture, while also being challenged academically. These programs combine coursework with international travel to enrich the academic experience.

Current and recent courses with short-term immersions:

Through Stern Around the World: Abu Dhabi students examine key cultural, economic, political, social structures and trends in the Middle East, and assess their implications for business strategies. Students in this course take a trip to Abu Dhabi to experience firsthand what has been taught in the classroom.

Through Stern Around the World: India students take a trip to Mumbai and Mahabalipuram to study the economic development of this key emerging market and the role private social enterprise (both for-profit and not-for-profit) plays in India. 

The Stern Around the World: Ghana is a part of the Stern International Volunteers Program, an important component of NYU Stern's Social Impact co-curricular programming. SAW Ghana offers freshman, sophomores, and juniors the opportunity to travel to Accra for 10 days in the spring to serve the needs of the local community. Through this program, students gain a heightened inter-cultural awareness while deepening their commitment to community service.
