New York University’s Stern School of Business (NYU Stern) has announced two new specialized one year MBA programs: one in technology, and one in fashion.
In just 12 months, students in these programs will complete a foundational business core, a specialty core area, and electives. Along the way, they will work on real-life business projects for companies in tech or fashion and luxury respectively, gaining the experience and building the relationships that will land them jobs when they’re done.
With both programs, Stern intends to take advantage of its location to offer an immersive experience. For example, the Fashion & Luxury MBA includes several hands-on projects with companies in New York. It also features a two-week “international fashion and luxury immersion”. Students will also be able to collaborate and network with business through the NYU Stern Fashion Lab.
The curriculum for the Tech MBA, meanwhile, includes both an “NYC Immersion” experience in the summer and a “Silicon Valley Immersion” experience in the winter.
Stern has assembled power-packed advisory boards filled with business leaders from each industry. One includes top brass from Amazon, Google’s parent company Alphabet, PayPal, Microsoft, and other tech titans, as well as heads of technology for old economy giants like Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. The other is made up of heads of fashion, including Gilt Groupe Founder Alexis Maybank; Simon Collins, founder of the Fashion Culture Design Unconference and former dean of the School of Fashion at Parsons; and SWW Creative President and CEO Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.
