CAS also offers joint majors with Computer Science and Mathematics. Joint majors will give you a firm foundation in both fields. You’ll find the full list of courses that you need to complete a joint major on our website.
A Foundation in Business at Stern
At Stern you will still pursue a liberal arts core, but you’ll also pursue a business core. The business core will introduce you to accounting, finance, and global business. You’ll also pursue a social impact core, where you’ll learn how to conduct business for the greater good. There are two focus areas at Stern: business economics and econometrics and quantitative economics (EQE). Business economics will help you grasp how technology, consumers, and politics will impact your goals. EQE is more STEM-oriented. It will provide you with the analytical skills, including coding and statistics, that modern economists use.
The World Is at Your Fingertips at NYU Abu Dhabi
An Abundance of Insight from China at NYU Shanghai
Economics in Shanghai is rooted in three key areas. After completing the major’s core curriculum, students choose courses that develop their understanding. Unlike the other programs, Shanghai students donʼt choose a concentration, but they do apply their knowledge to developmental, behavioral, and public economics. More broadly, Shanghai is a global finance and business hub. While studying here, students can apply their knowledge to real-world challenges through incredible internship opportunities. By earning both a western and Chinese degree, they’re also prepared for successful careers at home or abroad.
We know it can be hard to pick the program thatʼs right for you. When I first started college, I was trying to choose between five different majors. Five! What I didnʼt realize at first was that there are so many resources to help you make your decision. Attend an information session, chat with an admissions counselor, or reach out to some of our current students. Ask your high school guidance counselor for help, too—theyʼre an incredible resource! At the end of the day, remember that regardless of what you choose, we’ll be there to support you every step of the way.
