Mercy College President Tim Hall said: “This is an opportunity for residents of Westchester and the Bronx to be in the classroom learning about advanced business concepts in a setting that makes achieving the work/ life/ study balance a lot easier. We are excited to expand these programs and applaud the students who will be enrolling.”
When it comes to students, Mercy’s admission’s team is looking for the driven, unstoppable and the focused to apply to the Business Graduate School Programs. MBA Program alumnus Michael Zarrilli said: “I was a Mount Vernon Police officer before I enrolled in the MBA Program. A graduate business degree can jump start your career and give you more professional options. For me it was great to be around ambitious people, with different career pasts. We learned financial analysis and managerial analytics, and have discussed a rich array of business topics – the program completely changed the course of my life.”
Mercy College School of Business Dean Ed Weis said: “I’m proud of the dramatic enrollment growth of the MBA program in recent years which has been driven by our innovative approach. In addition to their terrific academic credentials, our professors have decades of professional leadership experience at top global companies. This allows our curriculum to be focused on high level consulting projects where the academic knowledge actually transfers to our students’ desired corporate roles. We also offer students opportunities to network with Fortune 500 business leaders through our Advisory Board.”
