Application Process

Our online application is encrypted and all personal information is protected in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  In order to be considered for admission, applicants must have an undergraduate degree and at least six years full-time work experience upon submission of the Pre-Application. 

Step 1

Fill out the Pre-Application, a brief snapshot of your professional experience that should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. You will also need to submit an up-to-date résumé (please upload before submitting your pre-application). There is no fee for the pre-application (Part I of the online application).

Step 2

Once the Admissions Committee has received your pre-application, a representative will contact you to schedule an interview. The interview is evaluative and required for all applicants.  It is also designed to provide you with more information about Stern’s Executive MBA program and to determine whether our program is a good fit for you.

Step 3

Submit the Formal Application. Please note that you are not required to attend an interview prior to submitting the formal application, although it is recommended that you do so.

Due to the selective and competitive nature of the admissions process, candidates are encouraged to come in for an interview and submit their formal applications as soon as possible. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis once they are complete. Candidates should ensure that the Admissions Committee has received all parts of their application by the earliest possible deadline.

Contact the Admissions Committee with any questions regarding your application.

Visit Our Campus

Attend an Information Session

If you are in the early stages of exploring NYU Stern, we recommend attending one of our Executive MBA information sessions. These are held throughout the academic year; most are on campus. At the information session, you will learn what distinguishes Stern’s Executive MBA program from others and how it will prepare you for lifelong professional success. You will also meet other prospective students who could become part of your future network.

Visit a Class

The best way to see what the NYU Stern Executive MBA experience is really like is to attend class. Applicants who have completed both the pre-application and the admissions interview are encouraged to request a class visit. During your class visit, you will observe two classes and meet several of our current students, so you can directly experience the classroom dynamics and energy of NYU Stern.
