Application Process

Change of Contact Information
It is the applicant’s responsibility to update NYU Stern immediately with any new contact information. Failure to update contact information may result in applicants missing important communications from the University, which could jeopardize applicants’ admission and/or place in the class. If your contact information needs to be updated, please email

International Student Visa Status
The NYU Stern Executive MBA program is considered part-time study. Part-time study does not provide student visa eligibility. Applicants are responsible for determining whether they have the necessary visa status to participate in the duration of the 24 month Executive MBA program.

Application Fee
The application fee is non-refundable and may not be used toward future applications to NYU Stern or other NYU programs.

Statement of Certification
Before submitting an application, all applicants are required to read and electronically sign the Statement of Certification. NYU Stern reserves the right to contact appropriate sources to ensure the accuracy of all the information you have provided. Additionally, NYU Stern may validate the accuracy of application information with the appropriate sources. You must promptly inform NYU Stern if any information changes.

NYU Stern may revoke your admission if we learn that you have misrepresented and/or omitted information during or after the admissions process, or that you have engaged in behavior showing a serious lack of judgment or integrity prior to or after admission. If your admission is revoked, you will not be eligible to re-apply to any NYU Stern MBA program. Any items submitted to NYU Stern in conjunction with your application become the sole property of NYU Stern and will not be returned, duplicated, or transferred.

During the in-person interview, as well as through the formal application, we will assess the English language proficiency level of applicants for whom English is a second language.

Admissions Terms

Transferring Credits

Applying to Other NYU Stern MBA Programs
Applicants may only apply to one NYU Stern MBA program per start term (Full-time, Part-time, Executive or TRIUM Executive). If you are not offered admission or withdraw your application during the cycle, you may request to apply to a different program in the same admissions cycle. All requests must be sent to and will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Your request must be approved before you begin your new application.

Dual Degree Programs
Executive MBA students cannot pursue dual degree programs.

Additional Submissions by Waitlisted Applicants
Waitlisted applicants are welcome to submit additional materials for the Admissions Committee’s review. However, the Admissions Committee reserves the right to make final decisions on waitlisted applications prior to receiving additional information. Materials received after a final decision will not affect that decision.

Enrollment Deposit
If admitted, a $5,000 non-refundable enrollment deposit is required to hold your place the program. The enrollment deposit is not refundable under any circumstances.

Deferred Admissions
In rare cases, in which unexpected personal or professional circumstances prevent you from beginning the program on the intended date, you may submit a request to the Executive MBA Admissions Committee to defer your enrollment for up to one year. The Admissions Committee reviews deferral requests on a case-by-case basis and approval is not guaranteed.

Changing Status after Enrollment
NYU Stern typically does not permit students to switch from the Executive MBA program to either the Full-time or the Part-time programs after enrollment in the Executive MBA program. Please carefully consider which program is best suited to your goals prior to applying.

Verification Process
NYU Stern may verify applicant records and other reported data to maintain the strict standards and honor code of the NYU Stern School of Business. If NYU Stern requests verification, you may be responsible for the fee for this service.

Program Structure

Student Services
Once enrolled in the program, Executive MBA students begin working with the Student Services team. The Student Services team guides students through their 24 months in the program, acting as the main point of contact for all things program related. Students hear from the Student Services team directly via email about pre-program preparations.
