These 15 credits can include courses at Stern's campus in Manhattan, courses at another NYU graduate school, or even courses overseas through one of our many international partners.

Waiving Core Courses

Students may establish proficiency in order to waive some Core courses. Each year, the academic departments determine proficiency requirements. These may include majoring in a subject, taking a proficiency exam or having a professional certification such as a CPA.

If you waive a Core course, you will still need to fulfill 60 course credits at Stern to complete your MBA, however you will be able to take more elective courses.

  • Take up to 25% of your courses (15 credits) at other NYU graduate schools, including the Wagner School of Public Service, the Tisch School of the Arts and the Schack Real Estate Institute.
  • Leverage a variety of global program opportunities, including Doing Business In (DBi) courses in more than a dozen locations.

Students may earn up to three specializations. Each specialization is comprised of at least 9 credits, selected from the elective offerings. While most students earn at least one specialization, it is not mandatory to specialize in order to graduate.
