Global Experience Requirement
Students in the Classes of 2027 and 2028 (first-year students starting in Fall 2023 and Fall 2024) are required to complete the Global Experience requirement* as a part of their degree requirements. Most Stern undergraduates will fulfill the Global Experience requirement with the following Stern or NYU credit-bearing travel programs:
- Spend at least one semester (fall or spring) at any NYU Global site through the official NYU Study Away program.
- Spend at least one semester (fall or spring) or summer at any Stern International Business Exchange (IBEX) site through the official IBEX program.
- Completing and passing any Stern Around the World (SAW) short-term immersion course.
*BS in Business and Political Economy (BPE) and BS in Business students in the First Year in London Opportunity (FYLO) fulfill this requirement with global experiences already built into their programs (BPE sophomore year with NYU Global and FYLO first-year with NYU London).

The tuition for these courses is included in the semester tuition for full-time students (fall or spring) and there is a separate fee for the travel and programmatic expenses associated with the travel.
Stern Around the World (SAW) Short-term Global Immersion
Additional scholarship aid for SAW Short-term Global Immersion: Stern provides need-based scholarship aid in the form of a Stern Global Immersion Scholarship for students with demonstrated financial need. First-year Stern students with demonstrated financial need, will be automatically awarded a Stern Global Immersion Scholarship that can be used toward one Stern short-term global immersion experience during their Stern undergraduate college career, should they choose to participate in one of the short-term immersion programs. Student recipients will receive a separate communication regarding the details of the award, which is not transferable to another global experience. Immersion locations change periodically and a specific location cannot be guaranteed.
