Manhattan College truly offers the best of both worlds — a small, safe traditional collegiate campus located in Riverdale and easy access to New York City. Take a short subway ride into the bustling metropolis of Manhattan and be inspired by the great minds of the past and present. Manhattan College isn’t just about developing academically; it’s also about becoming a well-rounded citizen of the world: culturally, spiritually and socially. And there’s no better place to do this than in the throbbing heartbeat of the planet: New York City.
Nearly half of the students at Manhattan College complete a NYC-based internship (coordinated by the Center for Career Development), with many of these leading to full-time employment. Popular internships include PricewaterhouseCoopers, IBM, New York Power Authority, Met Life, UBS, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, New York Mets, Donna Karan, New York Life Insurance and many more. Manhattan College students have a distinct advantage when it comes to getting internships and jobs because of our access to New York City and the multitude of companies headquartered here.
