Transfer Credit

Transfer Credit for Core Courses

The Stern School will not accept transfer credits from other educational institutions for Core courses. If a student possesses knowledge in a core discipline, he or she may take a proficiency exam to waive or establish proficiency in that area.

Students previously enrolled in another NYU division or master's program must take 60 credits after matriculation at Stern to satisfy the MBA degree requirements. Stern courses taken prior to matriculation at Stern do not count towards the MBA degree requirements.

Transferring Credit from Another AACSB School

Students who leave the New York area may take up to 15 elective credits at another AACSB school towards their MBA degree at Stern. For details, please see the "Leaving the New York Area" section on this policy page.
