Stern School of Business

At the NYU Stern Undergraduate College, we educate leaders who are transforming their knowledge into real value that benefits our global society. Our vision is to build, educate and inspire a collaborative community of socially engaged, intellectually vibrant, global leaders and thinkers. An Education in Possible is our promise to deliver an education that combines rigor in the classroom with engagement beyond the classroom in New York City and around the world. We deliver this promise through a dedication to academic excellence and innovation, “glocal” perspective, and community engagement.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

NYU Stern is at the heart of the financial and business capital of the United States if not the world. Stern takes every measure to shirk the idea that a college should be an independent community of thinkers - rather Stern seeks to bring elements of the real world into the classroom and the campus environment at every turn, whether it be regular social events in NYC, bringing a variety of business experts on campus to teach classes and host events for clubs and organizations, or sending 67% of undergraduate students abroad for a semester or more to study. This real world, applied experience is a massive and unique advantage provided to Stern students.
