NYU Stern Executive MBA Program Structure

The NYU Stern Executive MBA program is a 22-month program, with classes meeting every other Friday and Saturday in Manhattan. The Stern Executive MBA program also features two required week-long Global Study Tours.

Curriculum

NYU Stern Executive MBA students are required to take 61 credits of executive-level coursework to graduate. The first year of the program is made up of core coursework while the second year consists of 12 elective courses. These elective offerings are wide-ranging, as EMBA students can take courses in any of NYU’s programs, including the NYU School of Law, the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, the Real Estate Institute at NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies, and the Entertainment, Media, and Technology program at the Steinhardt School. EMBA students also have the option of pursuing up to three separate specializations with each specialization requiring nine credits of relevant coursework chosen by the program’s faculty. Specializations can vary from year-to-year and class-to-class. Generally, a full course is worth three credits.

Class Profile

About 30 percent of the most recent NYU Stern Executive MBA class identifies as female, while 30 percent of the class comes from an international background. Upwards of 40 percent of the class has already earned some advanced graduate degree, with an average of 14 years of professional work experience.. The average age of the class is 38-years old.

Careers

Stern Executive MBA students have access to the Career Center for Working Professionals (CCWP), which offers lifelong career support through individual career counseling, resume reviews and mock interviews. The CCWP provides EMBA-tailored programming, but EMBA students do not have access to the full-time MBA on-campus recruiting process.

Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition and fees for the EMBA program beginning in August 2017 and January 2018 total is $189,200. This amount includes a $5,000 non-refundable deposit upon acceptance to the program, as well as all fees, books, meals on class days and residencies. However, it does not include the cost of the two Global Study Tours.

NYU Stern offers Executive MBA Program Scholarships and Yellow Ribbon Program Scholarships to EMBA students receiving little or no financial sponsorship from their employers. Executive MBA Program Scholarships are awarded based on merit to a limited number of students in amounts ranging from $16,000 to $50,000. Yellow Ribbon Scholarships, available to veterans of the U.S. military, are $20,000 awards.

U.S. citizens or permanent residents attending the Stern Executive MBA program are eligible for up to $20,500 in federal Stafford loans annually. Both domestic and international students may also be eligible for a variety of external private loans.

Admissions Procedures

Applicants must secure time sponsorship from their employer to apply to NYU Stern’s Executive MBA program. Time sponsorship is an explicit acknowledgement that the applicant will have to spend significant time out of the office in pursuit of his or her EMBA degree. The EMBA online application includes a Sponsorship Form that must be filled out by the applicant’s employer. However, financial sponsorship, while offered by many employers, is not required to apply to the EMBA program—students may choose to finance the degree themselves, in conjunction with the various financial aid and scholarship offerings provided by NYU Stern.

NYU Stern Executive MBA applicants are also required to have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree and a minimum of six years of work experience.

NYU / Stern Executive MBA applicants are encouraged to submit the online pre-application form, along with a professional resume, at which point the admissions office will be in contact with them regarding an interview and a class visit. Interviews are a required part of the application process—although students are not required to attend an interview prior to submitting their formal application, they are recommended to do so. Applicants must also submit the online formal application form, a professional resume, two application essays, two recommendations, a Time Sponsorship form signed by the applicant’s employer, official university transcripts, and a $250 processing fee. EMBA applicants are not required to provide GMAT or GRE scores.
