Class of 2015, Major: Business with concentration in Media and Arts Management
“The administrators and professors at Marymount Manhattan College saw and supported me as both a student and an aspiring professional, which bolstered my knowledge and confidence to an unprecedented degree. Additionally, Marymount’s academics provided a rare education on how business and art intersect, and my learned ability to measure that balance has proven invaluable to my career.”
Katie Hay graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Business concentrating in Media & Arts Management. After graduating, Katie worked in development at Film at Lincoln Center for nearly three years. During her tenure, she focused on cultivating a younger, more diverse audience, and created unique engagement opportunities around New York Film Festival & New Directors / New Films festival (co-presented by MoMA) as well as campaigning with Kickstarter.

Leveraging cultural content to increase brand awareness and subscriber conversion in Vulture readers, Katie programs a screening series, panel series, and curation projects with Bryant Park Movie Nights, Nighthawk Cinema, and Strand Book Store.
