The NYU Stern Executive MBA program is proud to support applicants through scholarships. We offer partial merit-based scholarships each year to selected applicants receiving minimal or no financial sponsorship from their employer. All scholarships are individual, one-time awards and are applied toward year 1 tuition payments.

Scholarship decisions are made based on an overall review of the formal application and its required components and the interview. Applicants will automatically be considered for all available scholarships and will be notified in the offer of admission if selected. Award amounts vary and are determined by the Admissions Committee.
