Admissions Process

The Admissions Committee accepts applications and issues notifications on a rolling basis throughout the year. Since the number of spaces available in the program is limited, we advise you to begin the admissions process as soon as you are ready. Applications are evaluated by the same criteria regardless of which deadline you apply by.

Within eight weeks of application receipt, the Admissions Committee will email one of the following notifications: offer of admission, interview invitation, waitlist offer, or denial of admission. We cannot, however, guarantee notification within eight weeks of the application deadline if your application is incomplete.

The Admissions Committee makes the majority of online MSQM program admission decisions without an interview. Interviews are available to candidates by invitation only. Interviews may be conducted virtually or in person. It typically takes up to three weeks to receive a post-interview decision.

NYU Stern evaluates each online MSQM candidate holistically across three dimensions: academic profile, achievements and aspirations, and personal characteristics. We seek students who demonstrate strong intellectual ability, superior interpersonal skills, and a desire to create value for business and society.

The online MSQM Admissions Committee looks forward to reviewing your application!
