Global Field Intensives

The Human Capital Management (HCM) department provides students with unique opportunities to pursue their academic and professional interests abroad through Global Field Intensives (GFI). These immersive courses of study allow students to study and experience first-hand how aspects of human capital management are applied in varying global cities and countries. Site visits at each destination translate ideas into action, and students network with speakers and organizations to advance their academic and professional contacts.



For two weeks in January (J-Term), the graduate course International HR Management is taught on-site at NYU Abu Dhabi campus. The immersive class examines the core competencies in organizational development and people management in the Middle East. Highly experiential and interactive sessions, along with exposure to international organizations in the United Arab Emirates, allow students to learn how to resolve global management issues within the broad spectrum of HR functionalities.



Student who attend a GFI course create an e-Portfolio that documents their research, studies, and experience. Examples of past e-Portfolios can be found below:
