A hallmark experience

International Studies Program

Learn about a country, economy, and company. Develop and present a business solution with your team.

Since 2001, the Barr Family International Studies Program (ISP) has explored the economic, cultural, and political histories of countries. You'll take this one-of-a-kind global strategy course on the principles of International Economics and Trade during the spring semester of your junior year. Your course will focus on a different global center of commerce in Asia, Europe, or South America. ISP presents the real-world opportunities and challenges that international firms face today. 

ISP culminates in the hallmark ISP Competition where students compete in small groups, and present a capstone assignment to classmates, professors and deans.

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of NYU Stern alumnus and Overseer, Edward Barr and his wife Nancy.
