DHL Initiative on Globalization

Our Mission

The DHL Initiative on Globalization at NYU Stern aims to develop and maintain the academic world’s most comprehensive collection of data on the globalization of trade, capital, information, and people flows and to be a leading center of excellence for data-driven globalization research. 

Drawing upon this unique research base, our Initiative strives to provide business leaders, policymakers, and educators timely and useful insights into the state and trajectory of globalization, how globalization affects companies and countries, and best practices for connecting across borders. 

As part of NYU Stern's new Center for the Future of Management, we aim to serve as a hub for scholarship on globalization and its implications. We embrace interdisciplinary approaches and engagement with practitioners as sources of novel insights to help address important business and public policy challenges.
