Gwynedd Mercy University’s School of Business offers flexible undergraduate and graduate degrees that help prepare students to succeed in the ever-changing, fast-paced world. It proudly upholds the IACBE accreditation. The newest GMercyU building, University Hall, is home to the School of Business and is filled with top-of-the-line technology and incredible learning spaces. Graduates will have acquired prominent skills, an in-depth understanding of business fundamentals, hands-on learning experiences, and a robust professional network.
Undergraduate students attend small classes where they get to know their professors personally. There are a variety of Bachelors degrees from Marketing, Digital Communications, Finance, Management, Accounting, and Sports Management. Students from any major can minor in Business Administration or Accounting. Last year, every first-year student received some form of financial assistance to attend GMercyU through merit awards and institutional and outside scholarships and grants.
Eligible undergraduate business students can complete the 4+1 MBA program. Graduate students can complete the MBA program through meeting on campus two nights a week, combined with online courses in a concentration. Concentration options are in Strategic Management & Leadership, Health Care Administration, and International Business.
There are many opportunities for business students to expand their education abroad and acquire an international perspective and understanding. GMercyU takes students to places in Great Britain and France during winter break. Students can participate in the exchange program with Mary Immaculate College in Ireland. There are also faculty-led short-term trips to places like Australia, London, Spain, and Japan.
The professional connections that GMercyU has built provide an incredible amount of resources for students. They can begin to develop their professional network and find internships with a wide range of companies, from small startups to top corporations like KPMG, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, and Merrill Lynch. Students experience real-world applications and get to compete in business case competitions.
It is critical to engage on campus with peers and enjoy learning, serving and building leadership skills. This can happen through student organizations like the Asian Student Association, Black Student Union, Institute of Management Accountants, Business Club, Student Government Association, and Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society. The Griffin Student Leadership Institute provides programming to develop competent and compassionate leaders. Physical and spiritual wellness is essential, as well. Students can participate in intramural sports and recreation and grow spiritually through retreats, Catholic masses, Shabbat services, Christian services, and campus ministries.
Service is highly valued, and the University provides numerous ways for students to serve. Alternative Spring Break Service trips take students across the US and abroad to help others in need. There is also Mercy Week, the Dublin Pilgrimage, Mercy Focus on Haiti, and Mercy Volunteer Corps.
For adults that need an accelerated business degree, the School of Graduate & Professional Studies offers degree options entirely online. Business students can obtain an online Bachelors in Business Administration in Health Administration or Organizational Management. The accelerated online MBA offers the same concentrations as on-campus plus Transportation Leadership.
