Graduate Study

Each year, one third of NYUAD graduates go on to graduate school, more than any Ivy League institution. Many students who don’t pursue graduate school right away, intend to within five years.

Building Life-long Learners

Unlike the undergraduate experience, which is exploratory in nature, graduate school is a more self-directed study of a particular subject. The Career Development Center (CDC) helps students define their interests and create clear career goals during their time at NYU Abu Dhabi, preparing them to make the most of an advanced degree. 

CDC advisers help students find a school with the specific degree program they need — from the courses offered, the reputation of the faculty, the employment profile for alumni, and even the environment and geographical location — all to ensure a program aligns with specific academic and career goals.
