Welcome to The Katz School
The Mordecai D. and Monique C. Katz School at Yeshiva University gives students the opportunity to further their intellectual and professional pursuits and become a part of one of U.S. News and World Report’s top 100 universities in the United States. The Katz School is committed to delivering a world-class education in emerging and expanding disciplines, to connecting students with thought-leaders and employers in New York City and beyond, and to creating an exemplary student and faculty experience.
Our programs focus on Applied Sciences and Mathematics; Technology, Data, and Design; Health Sciences; and those emerging and expanding professions that are being transformed by technology innovations. Graduate students looking for professional advancement can earn master's degrees in Marketing, Quantitative Economics, Mathematics or Speech-Language Pathology. In each of these highly specialized programs, the curriculum is informed by industry to provide our graduates with tools that will serve them well into their careers. Undergraduate students at The Katz School, whether part of an associate's degree, summer session, or CollegeNOW, share in the same forward-looking college experience as our graduate students. They also join students at Yeshiva College, Stern College, and the Sy Syms School of Business in the campus life that defines YU.
Yeshiva University is an academic powerhouse, and we invite you to join us.
An Exceptional Education
Whether on campus or online, courses are taught by an exceptional group of full-time and practitioner faculty, each committed to the principles of quality instruction. Unlike many professionally oriented schools, the faculty teach the science and strategies behind the skills, so that students have a knowledge base that will help them to thrive long after graduation.
Rather than relying on tests and exams, courses are frequently project-based, so that students are evaluated on what they build and do. As a result, students graduate with a portfolio of work that will give them a competitive edge in the job market. Faculty also recognize the critical role of technology in enabling digitally connected and data-rich organizations and therefore incorporate the latest software and lab equipment into their courses.
An Experience that Matters
We challenge each of our students and faculty to lead with values—kindness, honesty, generosity, integrity, and justice towards others—and to leave the world a little better than they found it. We are committed to the belief that it is not only the destination that counts but the values we bring to the journey.
