How NYU’s Online MHA Program Reimagined Immersion
Each semester, NYU Wagner’s Online MHA students look forward to attending one of the program’s biggest draws: Immersion, a two-and-a-half day residential experience in New York City. With the unexpected onset of COVID-19, the offering was canceled indefinitely. However, the skills gained from Immersion were simply too important to delay, and the curriculum was mapped in such a way that students needed to gain the credits—and the content—as soon as possible. So the team stepped back and reimagined Immersion from scratch.
