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.
