Transfer Credits

Transfer Credit for Core Courses

The Stern School will not accept transfer credits from other educational institutions for Core courses. If a student possesses knowledge in a core discipline, he or she may take a proficiency exam to waive or establish proficiency in that area.

Students previously enrolled in another NYU division or master's program must take 60 credits after matriculation at Stern to satisfy the MBA degree requirements. Stern courses taken prior to matriculation at Stern do not count towards the MBA degree requirements.

The transferability of credits earned at New York University is at the discretion of the receiving college, university, or other educational institution. Students considering transferring to any institution should not assume that credits earned in any program of study at New York University will be accepted by the receiving institution. Similarly, the ability of a degree, certificate, diploma, or other academic credential earned at New York University to satisfy an admission requirement of another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Accreditation does not guarantee credentials or credits earned at New York University will be accepted by or transferred to another institution. To minimize the risk of having to repeat coursework, students should contact the receiving institution in advance for evaluation and determination of transferability of credits and/or acceptability of degrees, diplomas, or certificates earned.

Transferring Credit from Another AACSB School

Students who leave the New York area may take up to 15 elective credits at another AACSB school towards their MBA degree at Stern. For details, please refer to the Outgoing Visiting Student page.
