Format and Schedule

MSRM is a one year long, part-time program divided into six on-site class sessions that take place at NYU Stern and in two rotating global locations.

The Master of Science in Risk Management Program is designed with busy working professionals in mind. It is a one year long, part-time program divided into six on-site class sessions (modules) that take place at NYU Stern in New York and in two other rotating global locations. Participants live and work in their home countries full-time between modules; this part-time format reduces the time away from the office to approximately five weeks over the course of the year. Between modules, students complete an average of 15-20 hours per week of work via distance learning.

We've made some exciting changes to the course offerings for this coming year to offer an innovative enterprise risk management curriculum that keeps pace with the rapidly changing world of business. For more information on course offerings, please visit the course index

The fee for the class starting in 2020 is $76,000, and includes tuition, course materials, some meals and official events; hotel and travel expenses are not included.  A tuition deposit of $7,150 is required to secure a spot in the class starting in 2020 and is due upon acceptance to the program. 

Program Dates

Given the latest guidance from the CDC regarding the spread of COVID-19, and NYU's decision to suspend all in-person classes through May, please note that we have decided to delay the start of the MSRM program by at least a couple of months. After much consideration, we believe that postponing the program will allow us to continue to deliver an outstanding educational experience while providing students with the opportunity to meet in-person across all of the program modules. We are currently working on a new schedule and plan to release it in the coming weeks.
