Public Policy & Management Minor

In an age of increasing public-private cooperation, with the traditional lines between government, business, and the nonprofit sectors blurred, NYU Wagner and the NYU Stern School of Business offer a collaborative undergraduate minor in Public Policy and Management.

Recognizing that many students will move fluidly between public and private realms in their professional work, this joint minor is designed to offer broad exposure to and preparation in both. Students electing this minor may choose from a carefully selected range of Wagner and Stern policy, management, and business courses. Among the first collaboration of its kind among US universities, this genuinely interdisciplinary program showcases both the business/management acumen and public service passion of these leading NYU professional schools.
