The part-time, 20-month program comprises 22 short courses, taken one at a time, for a total of 33 credits starting every year in August.
Students take courses throughout their time in the program, with multiple long weekends off and other breaks of varied length, including two weeks in December/January and a spring break. The program is lock-step, meaning students follow a prescribed schedule and take all courses together as a cohort.
The predominantly online MSQM program also includes two immersive four-day residencies, one each August on NYU’s Greenwich Village campus. During each residency, students will take classes in person as well as participate in social and networking events.
Each course is offered over a period of around 3-3.5 weeks, and typically, students take one at a time (except during the second residential immersion.) Below is a sample schedule of the courses taken each semester of the program. Please note that this schedule is tentative and is subject to change.

Each online course spans three weeks and includes two lessons each week. Students may choose to participate in a weekly 60- to 90-minute live online meetup with the instructor. Students can expect a faculty member, teaching fellow, or staff member to reply to their questions within 24 hours on a regular school weekday
