Topping the Global Economic Power index, New York is widely recognized as the most influential city in the world. Home to the United Nations headquarters and with 36% of the population foreign-born, New York has long been a destination for people from all over the world to pursue their dreams.

A business icon
From the financiers on Wall Street to the media kings of Madison Avenue, New York is more than a leader in these fields, it is an icon. Global powerhouses including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, American Express, and Time Warner are based here alongside tech start-ups such as Foursquare. New York boasts the headquarters of 45 Fortune 500 companies and is a major hub for foreign corporations, which occupy 10% of the city’s private sector jobs.

Culture of competitiveness
The most densely populated city in the U.S. and the go-to location for those with high ambitions in business, New York is known for its highly competitive culture. As the saying goes: “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.”

Life outside the classroom
With so much culture and entertainment available in New York, you will never be short of things to do outside class. It really is the city that never sleeps. We organize an events calendar that will help you make the most of your time in New York and sample all the delights the city has to offer. Bike tours of Central Park, baseball games at the Yankee stadium, Broadway shows – we’ll show the sights and give you tips on where to go in your free time.

Focus on your career
To support students in their efforts to enter the notoriously competitive job market in New York, we run an Internship programme alongside our intensive career development programme. Visas and Compliance staff will be available to answer questions related to a student’s visa status, travel, and work authorization in the U.S.
