Professor Andrea Tsentides with Honor students, Class of 2010.

The Marymount Business Management Association (MBA), a club that is open to all Business students, is organized and managed by students. Its purpose is to create camaraderie among students in the Division in support of academic, internship, and professional activities. Each year students elect officers and plan events.

The Honors Colloquium is a college-wide event that takes place each spring in order to recognize the work of students in all majors. Students submit papers, projects, films, or performance proposals to the Faculty Honors Committee, and outstanding works are chosen for presentation at an all-day event. Business students have presented group projects or individual reports analyzing companies, brands, or advertising campaigns.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) is a community service project in which Marymount Business students help low-income New Yorkers prepare their income tax returns.

In addition to serving New York City residents, the program provides valuable experience for the student volunteers. All volunteers complete a two-day training class taught by Professor Jill Beier to become Certified IRS Volunteer Tax Preparers. Volunteers also complete a one-day TaxWise software training class at the New York City headquarters of Deloitte and Touche.  

Since 2011, more than 40 MMC students have volunteered with VITA and, collectively, prepared over 450 income tax returns that resulted in more than $650,000 of tax refunds to New York City residents.
