Zicklin's Modular Executive MS programs are designed to make a Zicklin graduate education accessible to executive students whose busy lives do not fit a traditional program schedule or who do not live in New York City.
Each of the 10 modules is a single course that runs approximately one month. This format allows you to complete your MS in as little as 11 months—or up to 36 months, if needed. Students enrolled in the Executive MS in Finance in New York City have multiple opportunities to travel to Mumbai, India, to take the same modules taught by Zicklin's renowned faculty and industry experts. Each module requires only 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. See Faculty for a list of NYC-based Zicklin professors who will teach in the program in New York City and/or Mumbai. See EMSF Curriculum for course titles and descriptions, location schedules, and conditions of 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. 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.
