Highlight of the program

Residency at Stern

Are you ready to embark on an exciting journey of online education at one of the world's premier business schools, nestled in the heart of New York City?

Residential Immersion

The online MS in Quantitative Management begins in August with the first of two immersive, four-day residencies. The residencies are a highlight of the MSQM program. They take place at NYU Stern, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, and they give students the unique opportunity to connect with other business leaders as well as Stern faculty. The time students spend together on campus sets the stage for successful virtual collaboration and lifelong relationships as fellow NYU Stern alumni.

Residency Structure and Experiences

To accommodate working professionals, we schedule each residency over a long weekend in August. During the first residency, you participate in an orientation which introduces you to NYU Stern, your program, program leaders, advisors, course developers, professors, and each other, and enjoy social and cultural activities. You also complete the face-to-face component of the MSQM Communication course.

The second residential immersion takes place a year later. Students complete the face-to-face components of the Professional Responsibility and Collaboration, Conflict & Negotiation courses, meet the incoming MSQM class, and participate in a variety of other activities, including a workshop with career counselors from NYU Stern’s Career Center for Working Professionals.
*In exceptional circumstances, we will consider waiving the residential requirement and provide an alternative for completing the orientation and residency coursework.
