JD/MBA

To apply to the JD/MBA program, candidates must complete the NYU Stern Dual Degree application as well as an application for NYU Law.

While no additional admissions standards are applied to dual degree applications at either school, students qualify for the dual degree program only upon admission to both NYU Stern and the School of Law. Applicants will only be considered for admission to the dual degree program if they are first offered admission to NYU Law's JD program.

Students begin at the School of Law, and enrollment at Stern is deferred for two years. Students at the School of Law may also apply to Stern in their first or second year by the JD/MBA application deadline.

Detailed instructions for completing the JD application are provided on the School of Law admissions website.
 

MD/MBA

Applicants to the MD/MBA dual degree program must be third year full-time students at the NYU School of Medicine. You must complete the NYU Stern Dual Degree application and authorize the NYU School of Medicine to share your MD application with NYU Stern.

The Office of Registration and Student Records should send your documents to NYU Stern at admchair@stern.nyu.edu.

Students enroll in the School of Medicine on a full-time basis for the first three years before taking a dedicated year to enroll full-time at Stern to begin the MBA program. Enrollment at Stern begins in the fourth year and extends through the fall and spring semesters. Students then return to the medical school for the summer and fall of the fifth year, followed by a final semester of MBA coursework in the spring of the fifth year.
