NYU Stern retains absolute and independent control over admissions. There is no obligation to accept an HEC student. The admissions criteria for HEC students are the same as those used to admit applicants to NYU Stern.
Admitted HEC students receive the same admissions considerations, processes and services that are provided to entering students including the student visa processing.
Individuals who already hold an MBA from Stern or HEC are not eligible for admission to the dual degree program.
Program StructureParticipants may begin at either institution. Those beginning in the full-time NYU Stern MBA program complete the Core Phase at Stern, normally from mid-September to mid-May, and integrate the equivalent second year at HEC. Conversely, those completing the second portion of their studies at NYU Stern enter directly into electives, normally from September to mid-May. During the Personalized Phase/Electives, dual degree participants follow the same course structure and are expected to carry a full load.

Tuition & Financial AidHEC students pay the full-time tuition and fees to the NYU Stern Bursar at the rate set by NYU Stern and according to the Bursar Schedule for their second year.
NYU Stern students who attend HEC in their second year are not eligible for the traditional financial aid programs they receive at NYU Stern. However, they may apply for Federal Stafford loans, HEC need-based and merit-based scholarships and the HEC loan program. NYU Stern students who receive 2-year awards (e.g., Consortium Fellows and Dean’s Scholars) may not use their scholarship funds at HEC.
HEC students that attend NYU Stern for the second year are eligible for the same financial aid assistance as second-year Stern MBA students. U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents may apply for the full cost of attendance using Federal Stafford loans and private or alternative loans. International students may be able to apply for private loans.
There are no need-based grants given to any NYU Stern student; however, HEC students will be considered for our merit-based donor awards. No application is necessary, as all second-year students are automatically considered. HEC students may also obtain a Teaching Fellowship (TF) or Graduate Assistantship (GA) position at Stern. Payment for these positions is in the form of tuition remission.
