Dual Degrees Frequently Asked Questions
Registration and Bursar
You will register for your courses at the school of residency and pay tuition directly to that school.
In semesters in which you take courses at both NYU divisions, you may register for courses at Stern via AIS and also for courses at the other NYU division via Albert. In this case, once your final schedule is declared, administrators from both schools will work together to move all courses onto your record at the school of residency.
However, if you register for courses at Stern via AIS and also for courses at the other NYU division via Albert, two tuition bills may automatically be generated. Once your final schedule is declared, administrators from both schools will work together to move all courses onto your record at the school of residency. Once this is complete, we will also ensure that the second tuition bill is removed from your record. You should always pay tuition only to the division at which you are in residence.
If you need to make last minute changes to your schedule, please be sure to notify both schools so that we can ensure any corresponding registration and billing adjustments are made.
Similarly, once matriculated at another NYU division, students will have access to all systems of that division, including the Albert registration system.
Curriculum and Program Progress
Each program has different requirements and, therefore, different credit reductions. Below is a list of the credit reductions for each dual degree program:
JD/MBA: 9 credits
MA French Studies/MBA: 6 credits
MBA/MA Politics: 9 credits
MBA/MFA: 9 credits
MBA/MPA: 9 credits
MS Biology/MBA: 6 credits
MS Math for Finance/MBA: 6 credits
MD/MBA: 9 credits
Please note that at Stern the credit reduction is considered part of your Non-Stern coursework. All MBA students are permitted to take up to 15 credits outside of Stern (via International Programs or at another NYU division). Dual degree students will need to account for their credit reduction when determining how many non-Stern credits they may take.
Stern Services and Activities
Students should contact Careers for details. All Full-time MBA students may participate in summer internship on-campus recruiting once during their MBA program. Most full-time students participate in their first year in the program, however dual degree students in a three-year program (e.g. MPA, MFA) typically delay and participate in their second year.
