In a trend story highlighting top Executive MBA programs in the New York Metro Area, Professor and Vice Dean of Executive Programs Robert Salomon underscores Stern's focus on developing a cohort of students with high-quality management experience.
Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Another key variable in evaluating the quality of the program is the years of experience students bring to bear. Rob Salomon, vice dean of NYU Stern’s executive programs, maintains that Stern’s EMBA options in both New York and Washington, D.C., are 'executive first, MBA second. Some of these programs tend to be more part-time programs with students that have fewer years of management experience.' In NYU Stern’s Executive MBA program in New York, students average 14 years of work experience. 'They are on the cusp between vice president and senior vice president levels or they have founded their own companies and are looking to accelerate the growth of their firms,' adds Solomon. 'Sometimes EMBA programs are just a euphemism for part-time MBA programs.'”
