With study abroad centers on five continents, NYU has recruited international scholars and pioneered new programs. In a recent unprecedented move, NYU and the Emirate of Abu Dhabi worked together to establish the first four-year, liberal arts, research university in the Gulf region – NYU Abu Dhabi.
