Credit Maximum in a Course Designator

An MBA student is permitted to take a maximum of 24 credits within any departmental course designator regardless of substitutions or whether the courses are being counted toward different specializations. This applies to both the Full-iime and Langone Part-time MBA programs.

For example, students are not permitted to take more than the 24 credits in the FINC (Finance) course designator. If more than the program maximum credits are earned in a single course designator they will not be considered among the 60 credits required to earn the MBA degree.

Swing/interarea courses are counted in the departments by which they are offered as indicated by their course designators.

COR1/COR2 core courses do not count towards the 24 credit limit.

For Langone Part-time MBA students, the Langone Core courses do count towards the 24 credit limit.
