First and foremost would be the faculty of the Business Division  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: Business Management with concentration in Entrepreneurship</p></div>
