Policies

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

Applying to Other NYU Stern MBA Programs

You may apply to only one NYU Stern MBA program per start term (Full-time, Part-time, Executive or TRIUM Executive). If not admitted, you can apply to any NYU Stern MBA program for any subsequent start term.
 

Transferring Credits

Stern does not accept transfer credits.
 

Applying prior to Completing your Undergraduate Degree

If you submit your application prior to the conferral of your bachelor's degree or equivalent, we will accept and evaluate your application. This will not delay the evaluation of your application. If an offer of admission is made, it will be contingent upon the conferral of your degree prior to enrollment. An undergraduate degree is required to enroll in the MBA program.
 

Change of Contact Information

It is the applicant’s responsibility to update NYU Stern immediately with any new contact information. It is also the applicant’s responsibility to verify that any changes made to his or her contact information are properly reflected on the Application Status Check Website.

Changes to your contact information will be accepted only through the Application Status Check Website. Failure to update your contact information may result in you missing key information, which could jeopardize your admission and/or place in the class.

NYU Stern is not responsible for any technological issues (including email filters, etc.) that prevent applicants from receiving our communications.
 

Application Fee

The application fee is non-refundable and may not be used toward future applications to NYU Stern or other NYU programs.
 

Previous MBA 

Applicants who already hold an MBA degree are eligible to apply.

Statement of Certification

Before submitting an application, all applicants are required to read and electronically sign the Statement of Certification. NYU Stern reserves the right to contact appropriate sources to ensure the accuracy of all the information you have provided. NYU Stern validates the accuracy of application information with the appropriate sources. You must promptly inform NYU Stern if any information changes. NYU Stern may revoke your admission and/or scholarship(s) if we learn that you have misrepresented and/or omitted information during or after the admissions process, or that you have engaged in behavior showing a serious lack of judgment or integrity prior to or after admission. If your admission is revoked, you will not be eligible to re-apply to any NYU Stern MBA program.

Any items submitted to NYU Stern in conjunction with your application become the sole property of NYU Stern and will not be returned, duplicated, or transferred.
 

Enrollment Deposit

After admission, a non-refundable enrollment deposit is required to secure your place in NYU Stern's MBA program. This enrollment deposit will not be refunded for any reason.
 

Deferred Admission/Leave of Absence

NYU Stern does not grant admissions deferrals. If you are admitted and decide not to enroll, you may re-apply for a future term. Leaves of absence are not granted to students who find that they cannot begin the program in the semester for which they were admitted or who cannot successfully complete one course in that first semester (obtaining a grade of D or better).
 

Verification Process

NYU Stern has retained HireRight to verify the information included in the applications of all admitted MBA applicants who plan to enroll at Stern. We do this to deter fraudulent applications and preserve the integrity of the NYU Stern community. If you are admitted, you will be provided with instructions on how to initiate the verification process. You will be responsible for the fee for this service.
 

Changing Status prior to Decision or Enrollment: Full-time to Part-time

You should apply for the program (Full-time or Part-time) in which you want to enroll. However, if circumstances require you to request a change in status to Part-time either before receiving a decision or after being admitted and prior to enrolling, please submit a written request to admchair@stern.nyu.edu. To request a change in status, you are required to withdraw your original application and, if already admitted, forfeit your place in the Full-time class. The Admissions Committee will provide you with instructions for modifying your application as needed to be considered for admission to the Langone Part-time MBA program. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to release a decision at any time during the application process. Any items submitted to NYU Stern become the sole property of NYU Stern and will not be returned, duplicated or transferred.
 

Changing Status after Enrollment: Part-time to Full-time

Stern MBA Academic Affairs does not permit students to switch to the Full-time program once they are enrolled in the Part-time 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.
