Research Opportunities

NYU Stern’s world-class faculty is comprised of more than 200 internationally recognized scholars, including four Nobel Prize winners. Undergraduate students can participate in a variety of research opportunities with faculty members conducting research, reflecting NYU Stern's ongoing commitment to academic excellence.

Established in 2001, the Honors Program pairs high-achieving seniors with faculty members who mentor participants through graduate-level research and thesis development over the course of two semesters.

Through the Stern Program For Undergraduate Research (SPUR), students expand their intellectual development through academic research, learning from world-renowned Stern faculty conducting state-of-the-art research projects. NYU Stern students engage one-on-one with Stern faculty to learn research methodologies used in the field and directly support their groundbreaking research.

"Through the Stern Program for Undergraduate Research, I was able to work with Professor Taylor Phillips my junior year to study the intersection of social impact and business management. Not only did I improve my research skills, but I also was able to build a relationship with a Stern professor."
