Business School Overview
The Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University offers graduate programs in these departments and concentrations: accounting, e-commerce, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, international business, leadership, manufacturing and technology management, marketing, management information systems, not-for-profit management, production/operations management, organizational behavior, real estate, supply chain management/logistics, and quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research. Its tuition is full-time: $52,828 per year; part-time: $1,738 per credit; and executive: $157,000 total program. At graduation, 79.5 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.
M.B.A. students at the Stern School of Business are grouped in blocks of about 60 before starting school, and this grouping will shape their two years of graduate school education. Students in a block take core courses together, eat lunches on Mondays, and even compete in the annual Block Olympics.
When not with their block, students can take electives across NYU’s highly ranked schools. The Stern degree is an M.B.A. in General Management, and students can specialize in up to three areas, such as Data, Models and Decisions or Luxury Marketing. Students can also complete dual degrees, often at an accelerated pace: the J.D./M.B.A. takes four years at Stern and the NYU School of Law; an M.S. in Biology/M.B.A. takes three years at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; and an M.B.A./M.S. in Mathematics in Finance takes three years at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, among a few other dual degree offerings.
There are about 40 student organizations to check out, and the school's location in New York City gives students plenty of job opportunities. Stern students can live in university housing near campus or in Manhattan. Students looking for a break from campus can take advantage of week- or semester-long study abroad trips offered through the school.
Some Stern alumni have risen to the top of the makeup industry, including graduates Guillaume Jesel, the senior vice president of MAC Cosmetics; Alan Ennis, president and CEO of Revlon, Inc.; and John Demsey, group president of The Estée Lauder Companies. Other notable alumni of the Stern School of Business include Jack Abernethy, CEO of Fox Television Stations, and Farooq Kathwari, chairman and CEO of Ethan Allen Interiors Inc.
