NYU Stern is adding an Online/Modular option to their existing part-time MBA program. Stern’s current part-time tracks include Weeknights, Saturday, and Accelerated Two-Year programs. The new Online/Modular offering will be available beginning with the Fall 2022 entering class of working professional students.
This new option is not an online MBA, but a fusion of online learning and in-person courses taught on NYU’s Manhattan campus. The first part of the program, core classes (which make up approximately half of the program) is taught online. These classes will be “live” once a week (weeknights from 7:00–9:00 p.m. EST), enabling real-time interactions with professors and classmates, with additional class content taught through videos, exercises, and readings that can be done at the student’s convenience. The second part, elective classes, are taught through a mixture of
- One-week intensive, in-person modules in NYC
- Regular in-person courses on weeknights or Saturdays in NYC
- A selection of online elective classes.
Students in the Online/Modular program will not only gain access to a greater variety of courses in a convenient format, but also benefit from being in NYC for a week to participate in classes, network with peers, and engage in the business and culture of New York City.
The first set of modules will be available in 2023, and will be announced closer to that date. Those currently under development include:
- Thinking Strategically
- Leading an Organization
- The Financial Industry
- Global Business
- Tech Innovation
Modules are planned to be available in December, January, March, June, and July with one to two modules offered in each period. Each module will run Monday–Saturday in New York City and covers 4.5 elective credits through the integration of three subject-matter-related courses. There will be required work both before and after the week in NYC. The ability to complete one-week intensive modules and utilize other elective class formats gives students a much broader range of course offerings, specializations, and experiences than can be offered by utilizing only one format.
Extracurricular activities such as student government, clubs, and student events, as well as services from the Career Center for Working Professionals (CCWP), which has been holding coaching appointments both in person and online, are also available to Online/Modular students.
This hybrid offering is flexible and customizable, answering the needs of students looking for the convenience of online learning without forgoing the unique experience of working and studying in New York City.
“Stern has an established strength in delivering quality with flexibility, from the legacy of our part-time MBA program, to the successful launch of our online MA in Quantitative Management program a few years ago, to introducing an online option for select courses in the past year,” said JP Eggers, Vice Dean of MBA and Graduate Programs, NYU Stern. “Through these experiences, we learned just how much our working professional students value flexibility, which reflects the reality many of them now encounter in their careers as the future of work continues to shift, often unexpectedly. The new Online/Modular option will give students flexibility and access to our Greenwich Village campus and all New York City has to offer. It’s the best of both worlds.”
