The ultimate conundrum for me. Any suggestions between the two choices for a stern student?

    I would think for a Stern student, since it is a business school, that London would be the better academic option since it is one of the largest, if not the largest, financial hubs outside of New York. I guess the argument for Florence is that it is amazingly beautiful and it is in ITALY. The best way to decide is to look at the courses they have available at each respective campus and then pick which is best for you academically because you always have time to travel to the area once you've got a job post-graduation and it'd be better to go to the place that is good for you academically to ensure said graduation.

    Maybe that's too serious of advice haha anyways I'm trying to make that choice too, but for my junior year in GLS. Good luck!

    Yoyoma999 is right. London is better from an experience/academic point of view. You can always fly to Tuscany for around £50 or less on EZJet or Ryanair and spend a week or two touring Florence, Pisa, Siena, etc.

    Actually, if think that you might end up in London later on and want to do something interesting for your semester abroad, the new NYU campus in Abu Dhabi looks really interesting. Londondad
