First and foremost would be the faculty of the Business and Accounting Department.  Each member of this team brings forth an unprecedented knowledge base in an array of subject matter. But what separates them from simply being intellects is their pride and love for teaching.  Coupled with the faculty would be the intimate class sizes. Marymount students have the advantage of having small classroom sizes which encourages more student professor interaction, as well as a more enriching study of the subject. Thirdly, I had a wonderful experience interning for Finn Partners PR Firm in their literary sect, MEDIA CONNECT. I developed and planned national Radio, Print, and Television interviews for Business Authors. I was privileged to work with authors such as Dr. Charles Richards, <em>The Psychology of Wealth</em>, and Matthew Bishop, The Economist US Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief, author of <em>In Gold We Trust.</em>”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/855-jacob-webber">Jacob Webber</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2012, Major in Entrepreneurship</p></div>

The wide range of courses that the Business Management program offers allowed me to learn in depth about many subjects including accounting, marketing, entrepreneurship, and finance, which I selected as my concentration. Besides acquiring an excellent knowledge of the concepts, Marymount also supported me in finding internships, which strengthened my professional and practical skills and helped me discover my passion for the field of finance.”</p></div> <div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/1307-beatrice-barbesta">Beatrice Barbesta</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2014; Finance Major, Economics minor</p></div>

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.
