Business Center at Bobst
Business Questions are now answered at the First floor Multidisciplinary Desk.
Our collection supports the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Administration, as well as the departments of economics, and politics. In addition, the Center is a depository for United States and United Nations documents and numerous international organizations.
The NYU Virtual Business Library was created to facilitate access to the many electronic business resources and services available through Bobst Library. It is our goal to provide the finest research resources available to the Stern and NYU communities.
