Getting another degree is supposed to enhance your life, not interrupt it – so when considering a graduate program at New York University, know how well your studies can fit around your job and family.

Over 40% of our graduate students in recent years pursue part-time programs, in fields from Social Work and Computer Science to Nursing and Law and Taxation.  Our Stern School of Business offers a highly flexible MBA that is consistently ranked the best part-time business degree in the country.  In addition, there are more than 2,000 continuing education degrees offered by our School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS), an innovator in its field.

We have always been proud of our fluid relationship with the space of the City – free from confining walls, NYU has been able to reach more students offering entire degree programs through its branch in Westchester, where students can work towards degrees in business, medicine, social work, and IT.  SCPS offers real estate, business, and media courses at its center in Midtown and Global Affairs courses at the historic Woolworth Building downtown.  The School of Social Work also awards degrees in combined programs at St. Thomas Aquinas and at Sarah Lawrence.

New York University is very well suited for professionals, and just as convenient for students with families.  Child care subsidies are available, and health insurance can be applied to partners and dependents.  Our commuter services, fitness centers, dining services and rentable lockers can make the Village a second home for all our students, wherever they live.

We have always prized the ambition of our graduate body, and we likewise salute those students determined enough to advance their careers without shelving them.  Choose a school below to see how well New York University can fit into – and transform – your life.
