Please note that the information on this page pertains to the MBA application.
  • If applying through the Consortium, please visit this page

The NYU Stern MBA Application application is unique in that you can use one application to apply to up to four of our MBA Programs (Full-time, Fashion & Luxury, Tech, Part-time). We provide this flexibility, as we recognize more than one program may suit your educational goals. 

Primary and Alternative Program Selection

NYU Stern MBA applicants must select a primary program of interest. Applicants also have the opportunity to list any other alternative programs they would be open to attending. (An alternative program does not need to be selected if you are only interested in one program.)

Your preferences are very important, as you will be admitted to only one program.
  • Full-time MBA Program
  • Fashion & Luxury MBA Program
  • Tech MBA Program
  • Part-time MBA Program (Fall Start Term):
    • Weeknights, Saturday, Accelerated Two-Year, Westchester


Selection Criteria

We seek students who best exemplify Stern's core value: IQ+EQ. Our admissions committee takes care to select those who demonstrate strong intellectual ability, superior interpersonal skills, and a desire to create value for business and society. 

Stern evaluates each candidate holistically across three dimensions:
  • Academic Profile
  • Professional Achievements & Aspirations
  • Personal Characteristics
