The NYU Stern Executive MBA program is proud to support applicants through scholarships. The Admissions Committee offers partial scholarships each year to selected applicants receiving minimal or no financial sponsorship from their employer. Recipients will be selected by the Admissions Committee on a merit basis. Our merit-based scholarship program helps support our students who otherwise don’t qualify for scholarships that are reserved for full-time students. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must complete the optional scholarship question in the formal application. Students will automatically be offered the highest monetary award for which they qualify. There is no specific set of criteria that guarantees an award. All scholarships are one-time awards and are applied toward year 1 tuition payments. Admitted students are notified of any scholarship awarded at the time of admission. For more detailed information, please see our application instructions.

In addition, applicants should visit the financial aid website, where they may be eligible for additional scholarships.
