Students in Two-Year Program Will Experience Stellar Business Education, Spiritual Growth and Vibrant Campus Life.
New York—Yeshiva University’s Mordecai D. and Monique C. Katz School of Graduate and Professional Studies has announced the launch of a new associate degree program that will expand opportunities for a broader range of students to take advantage of the university’s unique undergraduate educational experience.
“At YU, we believe it is our responsibility to educate citizens and leaders for the Jewish community and the world,” said Dr. Paul Russo, vice provost and dean of the Katz School. “While Stern College for Women, Yeshiva College and the Sy Syms School of Business do extraordinary work transforming the lives of their graduates, they meet the needs of only part of our community. To carry out our commitment to a broader population, our admissions team is meeting with students who seek to start college in a two-year format and at the same time immerse themselves in a Jewish experience with their peers on our campuses.”
“This innovative associate degree in management is in keeping with our fundamental commitment to providing our students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this information-rich, fast-paced world,” added Provost Selma Botman. “Its imaginative project-based curriculum will bring ideas to life, use New York City as a classroom and prepare students to transfer into a bachelor’s degree program or launch new graduates into satisfying business careers.”
As students in the cohort-based program undertake their two-year associate degrees at YU, they will enjoy full access to the University’s wide range of Torah faculty and scholarship as well as its expansive alumni network and vibrant life on campus. This includes participation in activities that run the gamut from athletics and hackathons to theater productions and service learning missions, among many others. Each step of their academic journey will be fully supported both in and out of the classroom by a dedicated adviser and programming tailored to ensure their needs are met. Students who successfully complete their associate coursework will have an opportunity to transition seamlessly into the baccalaureate program at YU, enabling them to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in the same cycle as their peers.
“We at Yeshiva seek to advance and inspire motivated young men and women who will make meaningful contributions to our community and beyond,” said YU President Richard M. Joel. “We are committed to providing a world-class education in the spirit of Torah Umadda and believe that this Associate degree program will offer a unique and satisfying experience.”
