New York City is sometimes referred to as the financial capital of the world. Some of the
largest and leading business and financial firms are located right here. So if you’re considering a future in business, or getting into the business side of any field, what better way than to take some courses this summer in the midst of all the action? 

There are several business-related courses available in NYU Precollege.

The College of Arts & Science is offering :
ECON-UA.1-060: Introduction to Macroeconomics
ECON-UA.2-060: Introduction to Microeconomics.
These courses provide the fundamental basics needed for a major and career in economics, and economics is often required for business degrees.

The College of Liberal Studies is offering:
ECI-UF 101-060: Principles of Macroeconomics
This course is similar to ECON-UA, dealing with basic concepts of macroeconomic theory. Topics include unemployment; inflation; aggregate demand; income determination and stabilization policies; fiscal and monetary policies; and the Keynesian monetarist debate over stabilization policy.

The Tisch School of the Arts is offering:
FMTV-UT.1095-060: Producing for Film
In this course, you will learn about how a production company is formed and be able to analyze, schedule, and budget a 90-minute feature film of your choice!

The Wagner School of Public Service is offering:
UPADM-GP 242.60: The Business of Nonprofit Management
This course is a general introduction to not-for-profit management, with heavy emphasis on practical application. What are the core elements of a “good” not-for-profit company? And, what, exactly does not-for-profit even mean?


Summer @ Stern

In addition, the Stern School of Business is offering Summer @ Stern courses, MULT-UB.275-060: Business and Investments and MULT-UB.276-060: Behavioral Economics and the Science of Decision Making. However, before you can enroll in these, you will need to submit an application. Click here for more information, including course descriptions. Depending on when you apply, course application decisions will be sent by Stern every three weeks beginning April 4th. While you wait, we recommend that you register for alternative Precollege courses so they don’t fill up in the event you aren’t approved for Summer @ Stern. We also hope that you would still decide to participate in NYU Precollege if you don’t get into Summer @ Stern, and we would be happy to help you explore your interests in other areas, so feel free to write to us at

UPDATE! Summer at Stern courses are now full and no longer available.
