Students can explore the world of business while participating in cocurricular clubs and activities. These clubs give students an opportunity to work with professors outside the classroom while learning more about their majors and the many ways their majors will be used on a daily basis. Many of the clubs sponsor events and lectures during the year, bringing the business world to the campus in Riverdale. Students also have an opportunity to network with members of their field, many of them Manhattan College alumni, and explore their majors in more depth. Talk to your advisor about how to get involved.
