The School of Business and Technology at Marymount University sees the vital need to educate business students in the ever-evolving ways of technology so they can successfully lead today’s organizations. Grounded in the Catholic faith, students prioritize service, community involvement, integrity, ethical principles, effective communication, hard work, diversity, and critical thinking skills. The excellence shown by the business programs has earned the ACBSP accreditation.
Undergraduate programs include Bachelors degrees in Business Administration, Economics, and Information Technology. The Bachelors in Cybersecurity is an accelerated second degree program. Students pursuing the BBA can specialize in Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Accounting, General Business, International Business, or Sport Management. IT students can specialize in Applied IT, Forensic Computing, Information Systems, Networking & Cybersecurity, Cloud Computing, Data Science, Game Design & Development, or Interactive Media. Graduate programs include the Masters in Cybersecurity, Health Care Management, Human Resource Management, Information Technology, and Leadership & Management. Also, there is a Masters in Business Administration degree in Data Analytics or Leadership.
With the great advantage of being located in the heart of prominent governmental institutions like the Department of Homeland Security, the School of Business and Technology offers a Doctorate in Cybersecurity. The Center for Global Education connects business students with international study opportunities through on-campus classes, short-term faculty-led summer trips, semester programs, and international internships.
While the knowledge gained in the classroom is essential, it is just as pertinent for students to get involved in campus activities, student organizations, community outreach, professional preparation programs, and active-learning opportunities. Some of the clubs that business students may benefit from include the Association for Campus Events, Black Student Alliance, Campus Crusade for Christ, Fashion Club, International Club, Respect Life Club, Student Government Association, and South Asian Society. Students can stay apprised of all activities and events going on through The Bark newsletter and the online community: MUEngage. To carry on the Catholic foundation the school was built upon, there is The Office of the Chaplain. The Office of Ministry and Spiritual Life supports spiritual health and fulfillment for all religions. Students find ways to make a difference and impact their community through Community Engagement which provides opportunities like volunteering for food drives, cleaning up neighborhoods, tutoring kids, and even raising money for a clean water well in Africa.
While acquiring an undergraduate degree, students are highly encouraged to participate in at least one internship. Internships give students a realistic understanding of the business world while giving them supervised hands-on opportunities to apply what they have obtained in the classroom immediately. Companies like Accounting Solutions, Ernst & Young, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Richmond, National Geographic Society, The Washington Redskins, Koch Foundation, and the Department of Justice have provided internships for Marymount students.
People anywhere and anytime can receive the same excellent curriculum and teaching as traditional students through Marymount’s online programs. Business students can pursue a part-time, 100% online Masters in Business Administration degree.
