With campuses in the business and cultural capitals of New York City, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, NYU students have opportunities other students only dream about. Imagine being a business or performing arts major in of all places, New York City. Just as impressive is studying finance in the Chinese financial capital of Shanghai or engineering in a rapidly evolving city like Abu Dhabi. Be it an internship at a multinational corporation or a volunteer position at a hospital or theater company, opportunities to learn outside the classroom are endless at NYU.
“I really value the opportunity to work as part of a team and in a rapidly-expanding media field because I feel like I am contributing as well as progressing my technical and personal skills." — Kevin Pham, about interning at a television station in Ghana
