The NYU Stern MBA Application

The information below does not pertain to Consortium applicants and Dual Degree applicants.

The NYU Stern MBA Application application is unique in that you can use one application to apply to up to four of our MBA Programs (Full-time, Fashion & Luxury, Tech, Part-time). We provide this flexibility, as we recognize more than one program may suit your educational goals. 

Primary and Alternative Program Selection

NYU Stern MBA applicants must select a primary program of interest. Applicants also have the opportunity to list any other alternative programs they would be open to attending. (An alternative program does not need to be selected if you are only interested in one program.)

Your preferences are very important, as you will be admitted to only one program.
  • Full-time MBA Program
  • Fashion & Luxury MBA Program
  • Tech MBA Program
  • Part-time MBA Program (Spring/Fall Start Term):
    • Weeknights, Saturday, Accelerated Two-Year, Westchester


Selection Criteria

We seek students who best exemplify Stern's core value: IQ+EQ. Our admissions committee takes care to select those who demonstrate strong intellectual ability, superior interpersonal skills, and a desire to create value for business and society. 

Stern evaluates each candidate holistically across three dimensions:
  • Academic Profile
  • Professional Achievements & Aspirations
  • Personal Characteristics

Payment Methods

Please see below for payment methods. When making all tuition payments, you may choose one of the three options below:

International Wire Transfer

You have 2 options for coordinating an international wire transfer:


1. Flywire (by peerTransfer)

New York University has partnered with Flywire (by peerTransfer) to streamline the tuition and fee payment process for international students. Flywire offers multiple payment options and currencies. Students and payers will be able to track their payments from start to finish, save on bank fees and exchange rates and contact Flywire's 24x7 multilingual customer support by chat, Skype, email, and telephone. NYU and Flywire do not charge a fee for this service. 

IMPORTANT: Please watch this instructional video for important information and a step by step guide. For those initiating a bank transfer, please note the 2 business day time limit to initiate the transfer with your bank. 

Once the transfer is complete, please email Henry Xie at and include a payment confirmation.

2. Western Union

NYU has partnered with Western Union to facilitate wire payments to ensure that your payment is correctly credited to your account. In order to make a wire payment, you must obtain a unique reference number (this number is unique to each particular wire request) by completing an online form (link below).

The reference number must be included on your bank's payment instructions. Please provide the Western Union wire transfer form to your bank. If the ID number (provided on the PDF wire transfer form) is missing, the payment will not be credited to your account.

If you are paying using a foreign currency, please note that Western Union is able to secure a rate for 72 hours after submitting the form. This rate will be used for your transaction. If you do not make a wire request with your bank within 72 hours of completing the form, you will need to fill out the form again to obtain a new reference number and a new rate quote.

**IMPORTANT: Please note that after the 72 hour period, your Western Union online form will EXPIRE and the exchange rate provided on the form will no longer be valid. If you do not make a wire request within the 72 hour period, you would need to generate a NEW online form to process the payment. Therefore, if you are paying via an installment plan with payment deadlines that are separated by several months, please fill out a NEW online form for each transfer.** 

Once complete, please send the wire or SWIFT confirmation upon transfer to assist in location of payment.
