Zicklin's Modular Executive MS programs are designed to make a Zicklin graduate education accessible to executive students who do not live in New York City and whose busy lives do not fit a traditional program schedule.
Efficiently structured modules mean the same MS in Finance, awarded by Baruch College, CUNY, can now be delivered in Mumbai just as it is in New York City. Executive students living and working in Mumbai, in India, or beyond now have access to Zicklin's world-class business faculty and industry experts who travel to Mumbai to teach two consecutive weekends in the classroom. All additional coursework takes place before and after the classroom sessions, supported by an online platform that allows faculty-supervised individual and group work.
Classes in Mumbai are held at the Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry in their facility at The Ruby, Dadar (West). Located in Mumbai's most vibrant corporate area, the classrooms are equipped with the latest technology including audio-video conferencing, LCD projectors, and high-speed WiFi. See Program Partners for additional information.
Each of the 10 modules is a single course, a format that allows you to complete your MS in as little as 11 months—or up to 36 months if needed. Students complete three initial required modules in Mumbai and must travel to Zicklin's New York City campus to take one course of their choosing, with at least three New York City options available to students who want the fastest path to completion. Tuition and fees for one New York City course are included in the Mumbai program cost. The remaining modules can be completed, based on availability, in Mumbai or New York City, and at your own pace. See EMSF Curriculum for course titles and descriptions, location schedules, and conditions of mobility. See also Tuition & Fees for costs associated with additional courses taken in New York City.
Zicklin's modular Executive MS programs are designed to give students a global perspective and opportunities for global learning experiences, locally and at other program locations. Zicklin faculty teach from a global perspective that is threaded throughout the curriculum. In addition to completing the classroom study for one or more modules in New York City, executive students in Mumbai may collaborate virtually with their peers in New York without traveling. These global learning opportunities expand your network and broaden your business insights as you pursue your degree. Upon graduation, all Executive MS degree recipients, wherever they studied, are full CUNY alumni and become part of Zicklin's global network of more than 135,000 graduates.
To graduate, students in all locations must earn 30 credits for the Executive MS in Finance, maintain a cumulative 3.0 grade point average, and satisfy all Baruch College, Zicklin School of Business, and executive program policies, rules, and regulations. The Zicklin School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
Conditions of Completion and Mobility
Zicklin's modular Executive MS programs are designed to give students a global perspective and opportunities for global learning experiences, locally and at other program locations. Executive MS students based at the program in Mumbai are required to complete one module in New York City. Zicklin strives to accommodate all course preferences but cannot guarantee that Mumbai-based students will be able to attend their first-choice module in New York City. Some restrictions on mobility may apply in order to manage class sizes.
Students in Mumbai can complete their degree in as little as 11 months including attending one required module in New York City, out of three possible courses. Students who want to complete their degree at their own pace can do so up to a maximum of 36 months. Each module will be offered once per year in Mumbai and New York City. See Tuition & Fees for additional costs that may apply.
