Our Modular Executive MS programs are designed to make Zicklin’s world-class 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 runs approximately one month. This format allows you to complete your MS in as little as 11 months—or up to 36 months, if you choose. Executive students enrolled in the EMSF 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. 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 curriculum and format are designed to give students opportunities for global learning, locally and at other program locations. Zicklin faculty teach from a global perspective that is threaded throughout the curriculum.
Executive students based in New York City may choose to complete the classroom study for one or more modules in Mumbai and all students will collaborate virtually with their peers in Mumbai without traveling. Mumbai-based EMSF students will have the same collaborative virtual-learning opportunities and are required to complete the classroom study for at least one module in New York City. These experiences broaden your business insights and expand your network as you pursue your degree. Upon graduation, all Executive MS degree recipients, wherever they studied, are full CUNY alumni and become part of Baruch’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).
