Stern School of Business – New York University


NYU’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business program was initially founded in 1900 as the School of Commerce, Finance and Accounting. It was renamed in 1988 in honor of a $30 million dollar gift from Mr. Stern, who received both his undergraduate and MBA degrees from NYU. NYU Stern is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Today, Stern offers full-time, part-time, and executive MBA degrees. Stern’s part-time MBA program is known as the Langone Program, named in appreciation for a donation from Kenneth G. Langone, founder of Home Depot. In addition, Stern offers a TRIUM Global Executive MBA in conjunction with the London School of Economics and the HEC School of Management in Paris.
