Business, Technology and Entrepreneurship Curriculum Overview

NYU Stern's unique Business, Technology and Entrepreneurship curriculum incorporates business, technology, and entrepreneurial coursework with international study to offer you a real-world understanding of today's global business environment.

The program leverages NYU’s excellence in data analytics, computer science, and technology through strategic partnerships with NYU Courant and NYU Tandon.

Along with all NYU Stern students, you will also complete Stern’s renowned business core and have the option to participate in global immersion programming to develop strong critical thinking and global awareness. 
 

The Liberal Arts Core, the cornerstone of the NYU Stern curriculum, is a solid grounding in the liberal arts and sciences. This includes five courses designed to hone critical quantitative skills, promote creative and logical thinking, and build reading and writing skills. 
 

The Business Core provides an introduction to the key business disciplines of accounting, finance, and marketing, as well as an introduction to international business. After completing these business fundamentals, you may choose advanced business courses to complete some of the NYU Stern elective requirements.
 

The Technology coursework helps you to build foundational competency in computer science and data analytics in an approach geared for business application.
 

The Entrepreneurship coursework will help you think like an entrepreneur by developing an agile leadership style that is action oriented and focused on imagining and creating solutions for the challenges of the 21st century.
 

The Social Impact Core is a four-course sequence focusing on issues of personal and professional ethics; corporate social responsibility; the role of law in business and commerce; and the interconnections between corporations, markets, cultures, governments, and our global society. Coursework emphasizes writing, debate, and discussion. 
 

University Electives in the liberal arts complete the undergraduate degree requirements. You have the opportunity to pursue elective courses, which can be used to pursue a minor or to sample a wide range of courses that align to professional or personal interests.
