Program Selection
NYU Stern MBA applicants must select a program of interest.

Your selection is very important, as you may apply to only one program.
  • Full-time MBA Program
  • Fashion & Luxury MBA Program
  • Tech MBA Program
  • Part-time MBA Program:
    • Weeknights, Saturday, Accelerated Two-Year, Westchester

If you meet the following requirements, you are eligible to apply:

  • Undergraduate Degree: Students entering a Stern MBA program are required to hold a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in the U.S. or an equivalent degree from a foreign country (in some cases, this is a three-year degree).
  • Mastery of English: Please review the standardized test section to determine if you are required to take the IELTS or TOEFL exam.
  • Visa Eligibility for Part-time MBA Program: Part-time study does not provide student visa eligibility. Applicants are responsible for determining whether they have the necessary visa status to apply and participate in the duration of the Part-time MBA program. Without an appropriate visa status, applications to the program may be considered ineligible for review by the Admissions Committee.
