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.

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.
