Grounded in the rich learning and career landscape of New York City, CityEdge signature courses are a central component of the CityEdge program.
These courses provide students enhanced learning experiences that utilize the vast resources of New York City in ways that help them focus on their transition from college to their careers.
In some CityEdge courses, students go into New York City to learn directly from working professionals and practitioners, gaining unique insights into their work and useful advice for how to succeed in their chosen fields. In other seminars, working professionals come to MMC to share their insights and experiences directly with our students. In some classes, students engage with alumni who offer practical advice based on their own college-to-career transition. In other courses, professionals serve as external adjudicators or reviewers of student work, offering real-world feedback from an industry perspective and valuable career advice.
