Students enroll in the School of Medicine on a full-time basis for the first three years before taking a dedicated year to enroll full-time at Stern to begin the MBA program. Enrollment at Stern begins in the fall of the fourth year and extends through the spring semester. Students then return to the medical school for the summer and fall of the fifth year, followed by a final semester of MBA coursework in the spring of the fifth year. Students are awarded the M.D. in May of the fifth year, and the MBA upon successful completion of the final semester of the program.
Dual MD/MBA students pay tuition to the School of Medicine during years one, two, and three, and during the final fall semester in year five (when they are enrolled primarily in the School of Medicine). During the initial summer MBA courses and three semesters of dedicated MBA coursework, dual degree students are responsible for paying tuition at NYU Stern.
