NYU: How College Cost Savvy Are You, ?

Posted by heo

Hi ,

Affording and financing your college education is so much more than just receiving a financial aid offer. Here at NYU, we want to make sure you understand the costs before taking the next step. That’s why financial education is so important to us.

What’s the difference? Let us break it down for you: Financial aid is the types and amounts of aid offered to you and your family, while financial education is the understanding of all your financial aid options—including the implications of each choice.

There is a lot of information out there, and knowing where to start can be overwhelming. Try these resources to get started and feel empowered in your decision making.

NYU iGrad
NYU iGrad is a suite of videos, calculators, articles, and recommendations designed to provide you with knowledge on a variety of topics including budgeting, financial aid, banking, investing, and more. Start with Understanding the Cost of College to learn everything you need to know to make sound decisions about choosing a school and how to finance an education.

Financial Aid Explained
This 3-minute video walks you through the process of applying for financial aid at NYU. You’ll learn what forms are required and why so you and your family know what to expect at each step in the process.

And please don’t hesitate to contact our financial aid pros. They’re happy to answer any questions, no matter where you are on your journey.

NUCB Undergraduate School

Consumer Psychology

Prof. Qin Demo Lesson October 21, 11am JST


Join us for an online demonstration lesson from Dr. Qin on the consumer’s perception of price and how firms can take advantage of it. We will introduce the concept of “anchoring effect” from consumer psychology and apply it to a firm’s marketing strategy.

Prospective students, parents, and counselors are welcome to join.

Case Method & Participant Centred Learning

The case method showcases the biggest challenges confronting businesses today and places the student in the role of the decision-maker. Case discussions bring energy to the classroom and students are able to engage in the case rather than watch or read about how it is done by others.

Prof. Qin Profile


Dr. Dan Qin is an Associate Professor at NUCB Business School. He received his Ph.D. in economics from Waseda University.

He joined NUCB Business School in 2020 after working as research associate at Waseda University and associate professor at Tohoku University. His main fields of interest are decision theory and behavioral economics.
