The NYU Global Idea Exchange launches today!
What can 55,000 minds do when connected across the globe? Collaborate with NYU students and faculty around the world to bring together the entire NYU global network in an unprecedented way.
How It Works
The NYU Global Idea Exchange connects NYU students around the world to collaborate on an unprecedented scale, resulting in a tangible manifestation of NYU’s global network. Over the course of the academic year, students will be engaged by a big challenge question about cities - a question that encourages an interdisciplinary approach and activates the NYU collective, working across time and distance, proving that ideas never sleep in the global network.

Heleen Mees, a Dutch economist, lawyer and columnist, will be joining the NYU Wagner faculty this fall. One of the courses, “UPADM-GP 420: Managing Global Economic Crises: From the Great Recession to the EuroZone,” will focus on financial crisis and globalisation.
The students, she said, want to be seen as partners of the institution, not consumers. They would like to see their professors, not just graduate students, and they want to make sure exams are in line with material they have been told to master.
