​A master of business administration (MBA) degree is the internationally-recognized standard in leadership and management. Earning an MBA can enhance your career opportunities not only in business, but also in healthcare, government, technology and many other fields.

Low cost and the potential to complete your degree in as little as 18 months make the O’Malley MBA the best choice in NYC for accelerating your career.

Why Choose an MBA?

The Manhattan College MBA program puts the big picture in perspective, helping you to become a more innovative and productive professional. It is open to all qualified professionals who have completed an undergraduate degree at an accredited institution of higher learning. The program is taught by distinguished faculty and features a curriculum that explores decision-making and risk management, leadership and social justice, and organizations in competitive environments.

In addition to our MBA for working professionals, check out our 5th year programs.

You Don’t Need a Business Background

The MBA program is open to all students who hold a bachelor's degree in any discipline from an accredited institution of higher learning. If your undergraduate degree was not in a business-related field, we offer the MBA Bridge Program — a set of four accelerated courses that cover the essential foundations of an undergraduate business education. These four courses are offered online and can be completed during the 14-week summer semester, with two courses taken per seven-week session.  

MBA Concentrations

The MBA Program offers concentrations that give students a competitive edge in the fastest growing areas in business. Students can choose to specialize in Business Analytics, Finance, and Economics, or Organizations, Markets, and Sustainability. The MBA Program can also be taken as the Flex MBA Option with a broad exposure to a range of concentration courses.  Learn more about MBA concentrations.

On Campus or Online

The MBA degree can be completed as a full or part-time student. Courses are offered on-campus and online. Whether you are in the classroom, or on your laptop, you will have face-to-face time with your professors. You will get the chance to work on small-group projects and computer-based exercises with classmates.

Experiential Learning

Today, employers are looking for experience in addition to conceptual understanding. Our on-campus program's strong experiential learning component offers a variety of opportunities to apply knowledge in a real-world setting. This can include:

  • Internships: Our students have landed summer or semester-long internships at prominent companies including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Morgan Stanley and the New York Mets.
  • International Study TripsEach year, MBA students have the opportunity to learn in a global location. Previous trips, with extensive visits to local business and corporations, have been to France, India, Peru, and Dubai. 
  • Business Plan Projects: Our students traveled to Frankfurt, Germany, where they prepared a business plan for an emerging energy company, met a vice president of Deutsche Bank and visited the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
  • Entrepreneurial Projects: Our MBA students worked with chemical engineering students to create and market a natural hair-dye product for L’Oreal and develop markets for new uses of olive oil produced in Palestine.
  • Research: Our students placed second in the Baylor University-USASBE Student Case Writing Competition.
