About Chulalongkorn University

Chulalongkorn University logo

Chulalongkorn University is the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in Thailand. Founded in 1917 by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), the university was named as a tribute to the king's royal father, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). Over time, Chulalongkorn University, or Chula for short, has grown to become a full-fledged university. Today, Chula has 18 faculties, a graduate school, 11 research institutes, three teaching institutes, and four affiliated institutions with more than 2,800 faculty members. The Chulalongkorn University campus covers 500 acres in the heart of Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. The campus is within reach of the major business and financial district, as well as various other facilities.

Academic Information

If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend two individual advising meetings to plan and revise your schedule: one with NYU Stern Academic Advising and one with the NYU Stern International Programs team. As you build your academic schedule for your semester abroad, carefully review and consider the following course information.

 

IBEX Course Information

  • You may take a full semester of business classes while abroad on IBEX.
  • Leave room for at least two general electives in your schedule. This allows you to:
    • Take interesting, location-specific courses not offered at Stern, and
    • Have more flexibility during the course registration process.
  • Reference the IBEX Course Guide: What you can or cannot take.
    • You can take a maximum of two classes per concentration.
    • Accounting courses cannot be taken for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations.
    • All IBEX grades will transfer back to NYU Stern as Pass/Fail.

 

Previously Approved Courses

  • Listed below are courses that were taken previously by Stern IBEX students and have already been approved for a specific NYU equivalent.
  • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible. Have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • If a course is already listed below as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.

 

Finding New Courses

  • You are not limited to only taking the courses listed on this page.
  • If you see a course on Chulalongkorn’s website that you would like to take but it is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to NYU Stern’s International Programs team for approval.
  • Once Chula publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is being offered.
