New York University has created a visionary new model for higher education at the crossroads of the world -- NYU Abu Dhabi -- combining the best of a research university education with the advantages of a liberal arts, sciences, and engineering curriculum. NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU New York, and NYU Shanghai form the backbone of a fully interconnected Global Network University. NYU Abu Dhabi, as a major portal campus of the University, establishes a powerful environment for faculty and students to access the NYU global network and contributes to the ambitious trajectory of Abu Dhabi as an entrepreneurial capital of ideas and talents. Students earning their degree in NYU New York or NYU Shanghai may now experience Abu Dhabi for a semester, a year, or January Term course.
