The undergraduate Business Administration degrees offered through the School of Business are ACBSP accredited. The Media Management, General Management, and Financial Services programs within the MBA also meet this standard. The mission at MCNY is to “provide a superior, experientially-based education that fosters personal and professional development, promotes social justice, and encourages positive change in workplaces and communities.” This is accomplished through a unique Purpose-Centered Education approach. This curriculum combines traditional methodologies with actionable plans that directly relate to students’ place of employment or internship assignment.
Information and Technology students can complete both their associate’s and bachelor’s through the School of Business. Additional options include an Associate’s of General Business or Bachelor’s of Business Administration. An MBA can also be completed with specialization options in Financial Services, General Management, Health Services and Risk Management, or Media Management. The MBA programs include an international field study component that is unlike any others. This intensive 10-day experience is included with program tuition and takes students across the globe to destinations like London, Frankfurt, Paris, and Zurich. During the course, participants work to address existing business challenges through consultations and discussions. Some of the businesses that have collaborated with this project in the past are Berenberg Bank, The CityUK, Soho Artists, and Regents College of London.
Life at the College is as busy as the city that it calls home. There are numerous events and workshops throughout each semester like open mic nights, pizza and game nights, yoga seminars, study-skill lessons, and Welcome Week for new students. Diversity is encouraged and supported through various clubs such as FLAVOR, The Black and Latinx Student Organization, International Student Awareness Club, and Student Government Association. The Office of Career Services helps students as they navigate searching for and beginning a new career. They provide training in resume writing, interview strategies, networking, and effective job searching skills.
Students who experience hardship while completing their studies may be interested in the SAP program. The SAP Success program is a student-led mentoring program that gives students the tools needed to get back on track with their education goals. Anyone enrolled at the undergraduate level can join an SAP Peer Success Coach group. These peer-coaches give participants guidance that potentially will raise GPA’s, increase eligibility for financial aid or scholarships, increase the likelihood of admission into graduate school, and more.
Nearly all of the degree programs at MCNY include some components that can be completed online. At this time, the majority of degrees are either on-campus or hybrid. In the Fall of 2018, the College started its first fully online program, a Master’s of Emergency and Disaster Management.
