Overview (by Hjort)

NYU was one of the first schools with a business program in the United States. NYU has some tremendous advantages, the most obvious are its location in New York City and its strength in finance. It was originally an evening program conferring the BCS degree but eventually developed into full program from the Bachelors level through the the PhD.

It is a relatively large FT program with roughly 400 entrants each year. The center of the distribution is typical for Elite cluster schools - near 700/3.4.

  • Rankings
    • FT 2003 ranked NYU #8 worldwide - just above Northwestern and MIT and just below LBS and INSEAD.
    • In FT 2002, it outranked LBS.
    • From 2001-2003 NYU was the highest ranked elite cluster school each year.
    • EIU 2003 placed NYU #15 worldwide and #12 in the US. NYU outranked UC Berkeley, MIT, and INSEAD but was in turn outranked by UCLA and Cornell.
