Letter to Guidance Counselors
Marymount Manhattan College
is a small liberal arts college located on the upper east side of Manhattan.
This letter is meant to introduce
the Business Department at MMC. We are a division within a liberal arts college
in spirit as well as in fact. As such, the education we provide is in
the liberal arts. We believe in a focus on the fundamental intellectual
skills: abstraction, empirical investigation and the ability to communicate
ideas. We also stress the use of historical and social analysis to learn
about societies and philosophy, literature and psychology to learn about
individuals. We aim to produce lifelong learners.
We believe that this approach
is more appropriate for a business major than ever before. In the current
environment, no job stays the same for very long. Workers must continually
learn new skills and often new jobs. Being a lifelong learner is essential.
We are also small and our size
allows us to nurture students. Most classes have fewer than 25 students and there are no large lecture sections. The full-time
faculty know all of the business majors. The department encourages
all majors to participate in at least one internship during their college
