The Stern Pre-Doctoral program seeks to promote a diverse, scholarly environment and encourage promising individuals from under-represented or non-typical backgrounds (personal, academic, or employment) to enter the academic profession.
NYU Stern's doctoral students thrive in an atmosphere of intellectual rigor and creative collaboration. We cultivate colleagues. Most graduates go on to become top rate scholars who advance state of the art research in their fields.
Stern invites outstanding doctoral students from distinguished universities abroad to engage in research and scholarly interaction at Stern for one or two semesters.
