We’ve always been very jealous of all the students that get to study at NYU Abu Dhabi, but now that the cool university has launched its first ever Masters programmes, it looks even better than ever.
In August 2020 the educational institute on Saadiyat Island will introduce a one-year Master of Science in economics, and a two-year Master of Fine Arts in Art and Media.
The MSc in Economics will be the first to be offered in the UAE, and it will provide students with a blend of theoretical and quantitative analytical modules, covering important economic issues like market failures, behaviour, and effects of economic policy.
Meanwhile the Art and Media programme (also a first in the region), will allow students to integrate art, media, and design through creative processes that combine theory with practice.
Both programmes are designed to help support the growing industries across the region.
The start dates of the programmes are dependent on the successful application for accreditation.
NYU Abu Dhabi Vice Chancellor Mariët Westermann says: “This is an important moment for NYU Abu Dhabi. These two new graduate programs - offering the University’s first master's degrees - inaugurate our next stage of growth and development.
“Building on the strengths of NYU’s economics and arts programs in Abu Dhabi and New York, these courses of study are unparalleled for the region and infused with global perspectives.
“Students will learn in a rigorous academic environment nurtured by top faculty, on a world-class campus embedded in one of the world's fastest growing economic and cultural hubs.”
Fancy it? Well, applications for the Autumn 2020 semester are open now, so we suggest you check it out.
