Please carefully review all of our Executive MBA Admissions policies prior to submitting your application.

Deferred Admission

In rare cases, in which unexpected personal or professional circumstances prevent you from beginning the program on the intended date, you may submit a request to the Executive MBA Admissions Committee to defer your enrollment for up to one year. The Admissions Committee reviews deferral requests on a case by case basis and approval is not guaranteed.

Dual Degree Programs

Executive MBA students cannot pursue dual degree programs.

Changing Status after Enrollment

NYU Stern does not permit students to switch from the Executive MBA program to either the Full-time or the Part-time programs after enrollment in the Executive MBA program. Please carefully consider which program is best suited to your goals prior to applying.

Additional Submissions by Waitlisted Applicants

The Admissions Committee reserves the right to make final decisions on waitlisted applications prior to receiving additional information. Materials received after a final decision will not affect that decision.

Mandatory Executive MBA Orientation

Attendance is required at the Executive MBA orientation and week-long domestic residency. Once enrolled, you will receive detailed information about orientation and the residency week from the Student Services team.

International Student Visa Status

The NYU Stern Executive MBA program is considered part-time study. Part-time study does not provide student visa eligibility. Applicants are responsible for determining whether they have the necessary visa status to apply to and participate in the duration of the 22 month Executive MBA program. Without an appropriate visa status, formal applications to the program may be considered ineligible for review by the Admissions Committee.


The NYU Stern Executive MBA administration will determine if you are eligible for accommodations regardless of what you indicate in the pre-application or formal application. We use the shortest distance provided by Google Maps from 44 West Fourth Street to your home address to determine the number of nights of complimentary accommodation you may receive.
