Program Format

Watch the brief video below to learn more about the program format:

Participants live and work in their home countries full-time between modules; this part-time format reduces the time away from the office to approximately seven weeks over the course of the year. Between modules, students complete an average of 20-25 hours per week of learning via online platforms.

The fee for the class starting in 2024 is $85,500, and includes tuition, course materials, some meals and official events. Hotel, travel, and any related visa expenses are not included. A tuition deposit of $7,200 is required to secure a spot in the class starting in 2024 and is due upon acceptance to the program. 

The MS in Fintech program is a STEM-designated degree program. However, due to the program's part-time, modular schedule, students are not eligible for OPT. For a list of NYU STEM programs, please click here.
