About Nanyang Technological University

Nanyang Technological University logo

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is a research-intensive university with globally acknowledged strengths in science and engineering. Founded in 1955 with funds from millionaires down to the humble trishaw rider, NTU began as Nanyang University, a university created by the people, for the people. The 200-hectare residential campus, located in the south-western part of Singapore, provides a high-quality global education to more than 23,000 undergraduates and 10,000 graduate students. The student body includes top scholars and international olympiad medallists from the region and beyond. The original Yunnan Garden campus is now a cosmopolitan hub and NTU has a presence in other parts of Singapore, and in China, Europe, India and the United States. NTU  aspires to nurture entrepreneurial leaders through a broad education in diverse disciplines. Today, it is ranked among the top 26 technology universities in the world and well within the top 100 among comprehensive universities.

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 NTU’s website that you would like to take, but is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Programs team for approval.
  • Once NTU publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is being offered.
