Welcome to the Global Business Institute

For over three decades the Stern School has been in the forefront of research and teaching focusing on the international and global dimensions of business management. This global emphasis is one of the key reasons why undergraduate, MBA and doctoral students from the United States and over sixty countries around the world choose Stern to pursue their academic and career objectives, and the School is regularly ranked among the top-5 in global business teaching and research. This record is built on a solid foundation of faculty research on leading-edge global issues in international trade, commercial policy, open-economy macroeconomics, international financial markets and institutions, international marketing and accounting, business strategy and cross-cultural management issues. All involve the application of rigorous concepts and methodologies that meet the test of good research in the key academic disciplines, yet deal effectively with the complexities encountered when transitioning conventional economic, political, cultural, and linguistic demarcation lines.

The Global Business Institute, established in 2003, aims to provide a coherent focus for these dimensions of business research and education at Stern. We work with faculty to provide incremental financial support to facilitate and publicize productive research. We host visiting scholars on short-term and long-term residencies at Stern in order to promote interaction with our own faculty and students. We work with the administration in organizing linkages to academic institutions around the world supporting global exposure for both undergraduate and MBA students, as well as joint academic programs such as the TRIUM alliance with HEC in France and the London School of Economics in Britain. And we organize periodic conferences, workshops and symposia on global issues of interest and importance to the academic, business and policymaking communities. We find that New York City, a preeminent global hub, is an ideal venue for carrying out our ambitious mandate, and we welcome questions, suggestions and inquiries.
