Research projects are encouraged and we have several programs to support student research.
Research experience can help you define your career goals as well as forge long-lasting professional relationships with faculty members. Opportunities range from collaborating with faculty members on case studies, to business consulting projects, to analyzing data for a journal or conference publication. Manhattan College offers several research programs:
Lasallian Research Scholars:a summer program that supports students pursuing an area of Lasallian research, including: nutrition & health; sustainability; education, St. John Baptist de La Salle; and the plight of immigrants.
Summer Fellows:a fellowship that is awarded to one star School of Business student a year. This competitive program supports big dreams by helping students connect their academics with experiential learning opportunities.
Past student research topics have included:
For the Game. For the World. For the Economy?: The Sports Economics of FIFA World Cups
Sex and Candy: The Influence of Sexual Content and Consumer Trait Perceptions on Ad Evaluations
