The courses in this pre-professional area are designed to expose students to the principles of building effective organizations, with a particular focus on the for-profit sector. Organizations can be conceptualized in many ways — as a group of groups, a vehicle for creating economic value and sustainable competitive advantage, or a community of people pursuing a common mission. Each metaphor adds unique insights into the challenges and rewards of building an integrated network of people, systems, and financial resources that create economic and social capital.Study Away Opportunities
In addition to courses offered by NYU Abu Dhabi, students who elect to study away in New York, Florence, London, Prague, Shanghai, and Washington DC have the opportunity to take a course offered by the Leonard N. Stern School of Business. Stern courses that are part of the NYU cross-school business minors are readily available to NYUAD students. For students interested in registering for intermediate or advanced-level Stern courses, pre-requisites for those courses must be met. Registration is available to NYUAD students one week after registration initially opens. NYUAD students should work closely with their mentors well in advance of the semester they plan to study away if they would like to take upper-level business courses offered by the Stern School.
