Student Experience

The MSQM is a part-time program, structured to accommodate working professionals. Students take one course at a time and can complete online courses largely on their own schedule. Students are, however, required to meet weekly deadlines for assignments. MSQM professors hold optional live sessions each week which are recorded for students who are unable to attend. Learn more on the Curriculum page.

The MSQM program is a part-time, 20-month program comprising 22 short courses, taken one at a time, for a total of 33 credits. Learn more on the Curriculum page.

The MSQM program includes two immersive four-day residencies on the NYU Stern Campus in Greenwich Village. The residential immersions are a highlight of the program and take place over a long weekend to accommodate working professionals. In exceptional circumstances, we will consider waiving the residency requirement and provide alternatives for completing the orientation and coursework. Please visit the Residential Immersions page for more information. Additionally, we welcome students to come to campus for both the NYU Stern Graduate Convocation and NYU’s All-University Commencement at Yankee Stadium.

Students are responsible for finding and arranging their own lodging. We are happy to provide guidance on finding a place to stay near campus.



Eligible MSQM students who have not completed the degree and wish to further their education with an MBA are able to transfer to Stern’s Langone Part-time MBA program and use the credits they have earned online toward the MBA degree if they meet eligibility requirements.

Neither your diploma nor transcripts will reference the program’s format.
