Program Overview

The dual degree provides solid business training in a highly international environment by building on each institution’s excellence in management education and by blending the richness and variety of Europe. Successful graduates will be awarded both the NYU Stern MBA and the HEC MBA.

Participants may begin at either institution. Those beginning in the full-time NYU Stern MBA program will complete the required Stern Core and Menu Core, normally from early September to mid-May. They would then integrate the equivalent second year at HEC. Conversely, those completing the second portion of their studies at NYU Stern would enter directly into second year electives, normally from early September to mid-May.  During the Personalized Phase/Electives, dual degree participants will follow the same course structure, and are expected to carry a full load.
