Look beyond the numbers. An MMC Business degree will teach you to lead as well as collaborate, to analyze and communicate, and to think globally, behave ethically, and apply theoretical concepts to solve real world problems.

the program

Business students at Marymount Manhattan gain a competitive advantage by taking a broad range of courses. We offer comprehensive B.S. programs in Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Marketing, and Management; all complemented with our core B.S. curriculum in Business. Alternatively, we offer a B.A. program in Business, intended to give students with a special interest in arts, media, fashion or entertainment a combined foundation in Business.

Classes are small and the faculty is uniquely engaged with each individual student. Your professors will help you navigate courses, find internships, and discover your direction.

learn by doing

The epicenter of global business, New York is the perfect place to study business. Many of our students take internships at media giants like Bloomberg and Conde Nast, international financial and consulting firms, legendary ad agencies like McCann Erickson, and design houses like Versace and Armani.

The Sigma Beta Delta National Honors Society and a number of clubs and extracurricular activities including the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA), the Business Analytics Association which works with small business owners, the Investment Club and  the Marymount Microfinance Initiative (mmfi) which organizes the annual Fashion show,  provide additional opportunities to network, plan and attend events, and exchange ideas with peers and future colleagues.

I found the work challenging at first because since I had never been exposed to anything pertaining to energy engineering but I’ve realized that the key is to focus on applying the same general analytical skills I learned as an Accounting major. The internships I held at Marymount also helped my tremendously in preparing me for my first full-time job. During my time at Marymount, I volunteered with VITA, interned for a CPA firm, and worked part-time as a Bookkeeping/Clerical Assistant at a museum. Each of these experiences helped me develop professionally and paved the way to my first job. The faculty in the Business department as well as the Career Services office provided the means to access these various opportunities. The College’s small size is truly an asset because it allows each student to interact with the faculty and staff and this is the aspect I appreciated most about Marymount.”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/849-sharmin-kazi">Sharmin Kazi</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2009, Major in Accounting and Minor in Philosophy</p></div>

Having this internship taught Jason more about business then any classroom could; it also gave some great references and made his resume and experience more valuable. He has stayed in touch with some employees at NBC which has helped Jason network and generate business in his current position.
