    “I can say that my studies and my internship have prepared me well for a career.”

  • Jennifer Acevedo’ 19

    Class of 2019,  Major: Business with a concentration in Leadership and a minor in Psychology 

    On the whole, my internship experience increased my confidence in communicating my research to those outside my field and improved my intercultural skills. My experience of evaluating the financial and socio-economic impact of the beneficiary families has given me a real understanding of the practical applications of health policy on communities as well as its impact on the economy.

  • Alexander Aldridge ’19

    Class of 2019, B.S. in Marketing

    “What I learned in class could be directly applied to my internship. What I touched on more was the real component. People cannot be quantified into charts and graphs, we are far too complex for that. This internship showed me that. I plan to have a long career in marketing and brand management.”

  • Brenelle Braganza ’19

    Class of 2019, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Marketing triple-major

    Accounting and Economics minors

    I credit Marymount Manhattan as a school that brought out the best version of myself. Instrumental to my success were the Business Division faculty and staff, the valuable internship opportunities to which they connected me, and the rigorous preparation they provided. 

    “I’ve been part of so many organizations because being a student leader means helping other student leaders,” she quips.“ At MMC, I was involved in diverse extracurricular activities on campus, including serving as the President of the Student Government Association (SGA); Treasurer of Unbranded (Fashion Marketing Association); Vice- President of Global Citizen Society; Cultural Peer Mentor and Peer Leader for the NYC Seminar.”

  • Paloma Brooks’ 22

    Class of 2022, B.A. in Business with a concentration in Media and Arts Management and minors in Music and Music Industry

    A highlight of my studies at MMC was my internship at Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Branding, Sales & Marketing department. My experience included: assisting professional jazz musicians, going to concerts, conducting market research for an upcoming album, and organizing inventory for the in-house record label. After my internship I was selected to present my work at Honor’s Day at MMC. I am grateful to the business department faculty who were so excited and supportive of my collaboration in music and business.”

    I’ve always wanted to combine my love of music with my interest in business and my studies at MMC support that. MMC’s business classes make me a better, well-rounded artist because they provide me with tools to be more independent and make informed decisions behind the scenes of making music.

  • William Bryan ’21

    Class of 2021, Major in Theatre Arts with a Concentration in Costume Design and a minor in Business Management

    “The business minor, along with my costume design major, allows me to have options for designing, creating, and marketing designs in the fashion and theatrical world.”

    MMC’s Business Management minor provided me with flexibility with the curriculum. After learning the basics of business, I was able to invest my time with the aspects of business that interested me, which was primarily accounting and financing. This insight and knowledge not only inspires me to start my own business, but gives me the power to do so. 

  • Carli Christian’ 22

    Carli Christian, Class of 2022, BA Business major with double concentrations in Social Entrepreneurships and Fashion Marketing and a minor in Theatre Arts.

    “MMC helped me discover who I am and the MMC business division played the most significant in my success. As I complete my studies at MMC, I feel truly prepared for the real world and a professional career. I have learned so much and I’m super excited to apply everything I have learned to my business career.” 

    As I was getting ready for graduation, I accepted the position of Assistant Buyer at Tuesday Morning in Dallas, Texas.
