Business students at Marymount Manhattan gain a competitive advantage by taking a broad range of courses. They take courses in economics, marketing, business law, finance, and management; liberal arts courses in language and literature, social and natural sciences, and creative expression as well as advanced interdisciplinary courses. Classes are small (between 15 and 25), and students get individual attention. Small class size also means that faculty members get to know their students well, enabling them to advise students on course selection, internships, and career direction. Many Business courses include research papers, case studies, oral presentations, and group projects. The experience gained through different types of learning is excellent preparation for the challenges of today’s workplace.
The Business Management program offers six majors including a B.A. in Business, B.S. in Entrepreneurship, B.S. in Finance, B.S. in International Business, B.S. in Marketing and B.S. in Management. The difference between the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts in Business is one of emphasis. While both the B.S. and B.A. give you the fundamental skills to pursue a business career, the B.S. is for students who seek a traditional program in a specific business field, such as marketing or finance, while the B.A. in Business is for those students who want to combine a foundation in Business with a special interest in media or the fine and performing arts.
