Trivia Tuesday: Starting off Strong at NYU Stern

It’s time for this week’s edition of Trivia Tuesday, where we highlight special offerings that help differentiate leading MBA programs from their peers.  Today we’re peeking inside the Clear Admit School Guide to the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at NYU to read about Stern’s Summer Start program.

“NYU Stern runs a distinctive program called Summer Start, which allows a selected group of entering students to spend the summer in New York getting a head start on their MBA coursework. When considering students for Summer Start, the admissions committee looks for candidates who have strong communication and leadership skills, but could nonetheless benefit from extra preparation before beginning the MBA. Some Summer Start students have been out of school longer than most of their new classmates, while others have worked in less traditional pre-MBA professions.

“Admission to Summer Start is by invitation only; there is no way to apply directly to the program.  Because the admissions office looks to fill the Summer Start program with candidates who are enthusiastic about Stern and the program’s mission, candidates invited to interview for Summer Start have an opportunity to decline the invitation.  However, once a student has interviewed with Summer Start and received a formal offer of admission to the program, participation is mandatory.

“Summer Start begins in mid-July and runs for six weeks, earning participants six of the 60 credits needed for graduation. All enrollees complete the core course Statistics & Data Analysis over the summer, and most also enroll in Management Communication as well as Collaboration, Conflict & Negotiation. Some students in the program pursue coursework to boost their quantitative knowledge or their business writing skills. Summer Start students can also take advantage of a variety of social and cultural events to introduce students to each other and to the city.”

To read more about the school’s summer offerings, as well as in-depth curriculum information, be sure to check out the Clear Admit School Guide to the NYU Stern School of Business.  All Clear Admit School Guides are available for immediate purchase and download on the Clear Admit shop.
