NYU’s Stern School of Business recently released its admissions essays and deadlines for the full-time MBA Class of 2016. NYU’s application essays haven’t changed at all since last year, so our advice mostly remains the same. However, the admissions committee now lets you choose between two prompts (including Stern’s famous “Creative Expression” submission) that both used to be required, reducing the total amount of “stuff” that you will submit to the school.

Hoping to encourage more of its MBA graduates to pursue career in social enterprise, NYU Stern has just announced a new Loan Assistance Program for full-time, part-time and Executive MBA grads. The program, launched with the support of Stern’s Social Enterprise Association MBA club, seeks to ease some of the pain of repaying student loans for those who pursue careers in these important but less lucrative careers.
This program doesn’t only apply to current NYU Stern students. Anyone may apply for the Loan Assistance Program within 10 years of graduation, meaning that people who earned that MBAs from NYU Stern as far back as 2003 are still eligible to apply. So, even if someone decided to embark on a career in social e enterprise a few years after leaving school, they still can apply for help with their loans.
NYU’s Stern School of Business has released its MBA admissions essays and deadlines for the Class of 2014. Here they are, followed by our comments in italics:
NYU Stern Admissions Deadlines
Round 1: November 15, 2011
Round 2: January 15, 2012
Round 3: March 15, 2012
These deadlines are identical to last year’s. Note that, unlike many other top business schools, Stern has kept its Round 1 admissions deadline firmly in the middle of November. The good news for you is that, if you’re applying to Stern along with a few other schools in Round 1, this gives you a chance to get those ones done in October, catch your breath, and then give your Stern application your undivided attention. The downside is that Stern won’t notify Round 1 applicants until as late as February 15, 2011, so you will have to make choices about your Round 2 applications (which mostly have January deadlines) before you receive your final decision from Stern.
NYU Stern is one of the premier MBA programs in the country, and for good reason. Its innovative curriculum and terrific location make it one of the first schools that many MBA applicants consider, particularly those who are interested in pursuing careers on Wall Street. If you’re gunning for a top-tier MBA, chances are that you’ve at least considered sending an application to Stern. But, besides knowing that it’s a top-ranked school with strong ties to the banking sector, how well do you really know Stern? How do you know if it’s a good fit for you? And, perhaps more importantly, how do you know if the admissions committee will decide you’re a good fit for Stern?
NYU’s Stern School of Business has just named Peter Blair Henry, currently the Konosuke Matsushita Professor of Economics at Stanford University, its new dean effective January 15, 2010.
A Rhodes Scholar, Henry recently received some notoriety as the leader of the Obama Transition Team’s review of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and other international lending agencies. He has also served as an economic advisor to governments from the Caribbean to Africa, Dean-designate Henry’s scholarship focuses on the impact of economic reform on emerging economies.
Recently NYU’s Stern School of Business released its application essays for the the 2009-2010 admissions season.
We recently visited NYU Stern and met with the admissions office as part of the second annual AIGAC conference in New York, and we came away impressed with how much the school has innovated with special academic and job-related programs. Take a look at Veritas Prep’s NYU Stern information page to learn more about the school and see if it’s a good fit for you.
Thomas Cooley, NYU Stern’s dean, has announced that he is stepping down from the post that he has held since 2002. The school has started its search for Cooley’s replacement. While Cooley’s announcement may seem somewhat abrupt, it sounds as though he simply wants to get back to more research and teaching.
NYU’s Stern School of Business has released its online application for the 2008-2009 admissions season. Here are Stern’s deadlines for the coming year:
NYU (Stern) Application Deadlines
Round 1: November 15, 2008
Round 2: January 15, 2009
Round 3: March 15, 2009
NYU’s Stern School of Business has not yet released its application for 2008-2009, but the admissions office wanted to give a nod to the early birds in the applicant pool. A recent message on the school’s web site announced that Stern’s Round One deadline will be November 15, 2008. The full Stern MBA application will be available by late August.
Dual degrees are always intriguing, but NYU may have just upped the ante on other schools with their new dual program, allowing students to earn both an MBA and an MFA. This combination brings together top faculty from both schools to develop an intriguing mix. Because of the way in which movie production is handled, there is an inherent link between film making and business. Students will spend the first of three years at Stern, and their second at Kanbar (NYU’s film & theater school). The third and final year of the program will be split between the schools. Scholarships are also available, courtesy of an anonymous donor.
