SQL expert PortletPaul wrote an excellent article on SQL Server Date Styles using Convert, that demonstrates all styles.

The mm/dd/yy (and yyy) answer is
-- with the century
SELECT convert(varchar, GETDATE() ,1)

-- without the century
SELECT convert(varchar, GETDATE() ,101)

It could, but there's no single function to pull that off, so you'll need to do a lot of parsing...
Declare @dt datetime = GETDATE()

SELECT 
	RIGHT('0' + CAST(MONTH(@dt) as varchar(2)),2) + '/'	+
	RIGHT('0' + CAST(DAY(@dt) as varchar(2)),2) + '/' + 
	CAST(YEAR(@dt) / 100 as varchar(2)) + '(' + RIGHT(CAST(YEAR(@dt) as CHAR(4)),2) + ')'

SELECT STUFF(convert(varchar, GETDATE(),101),9,0,'(')+')'

101 conversion is always MM/DD/YYYY

with double digits for MM and DD

2013-09-25 00:00:00.000 as "MM/DD/YY(YY)"

So you expect? 09/25/20(13) ... is that correct? I think the following would be simpler

DECLARE @dt datetime = GETDATE()

SELECT
        convert(varchar(8),@dt ,103)
      + '('
      + convert(varchar(2),@dt ,12)
      + ')'

:) marginally easier in sql 2012
DECLARE @dt datetime = GETDATE()

SELECT
    convert(varchar(8),@dt ,103) + '(' + convert(varchar(2),@dt ,12) + ')'  AS "MM/DD/YY(YY) sql2000 +"

  , left(FORMAT(@dt, 'MM/dd/yyyy'),8) + FORMAT(@dt, '(yy)')                 AS "MM/DD/YY(YY) sql2012 +"

Sorry Zbertoc, no offence intended - it's an opinion only. Nothing wrong with yours.

Note to self:  I must get in the habit of using STUFF() more often, as the above one-line solution demonstrates.
