We seize opportunities to expand our perspectives and serve as global ambassadors.
Through a combination of NYU’s global network, and Stern’s partnerships and programs, you have access to an array of global academic programs.
A global experience will help push you outside your comfort zone. You’ll exercise flexibility and problem-solving skills as you experience new places, cultures, and customs. You will also gain greater cross-cultural sensitivity and self-awareness. All are critical competencies as you build your community at Stern and your skills for the workplace. With so many options and some planning, it is possible to participate in multiple opportunities during your time at Stern.
As an NYU Stern student, you have two options if you would like to study away for a semester: 1) through NYU Study Away or 2) through Stern’s International Business Exchange Program (IBEX).
You can study away in your sophomore, junior, or even senior year, depending on the program*. NYU Study Away fits best during sophomore or junior year; IBEX is open to juniors (in the fall or spring) and seniors (in the fall only). Explore each program to learn about the many locations and courses that are available. Meet with an academic adviser as early as possible to start planning your adventure.
*NYU Stern First Year in London and B.S. in Business and Political Economy students already study away as part of their program requirements.
NYU Stern's short-term programs allow you to enrich your academic experience by combining coursework with global travel in the US or other countries. Courses vary each year and have included:
- Stern Around the World: USA. Take a thrilling ride into the global business of fun with a focus on the theme and amusement park industry.
- Stern Around the World: Costa Rica. Study sustainable business and gain hands-on consulting experience.
- Social Entrepreneurship in Ghana. Travel to Accra, Ghana to assist with a social entrepreneurship project in a local community.
