Forbes notes that “the school is in an ideal location for internships, just a subway ride from midtown Manhattan. Most students participate in internships in their four years, with many working at large companies like Goldman Sachs, IBM, and New York Life Insurance. Also, the school has a mentorship program, which allows students to shadow alumni.”

Not only do a high number of students participate in internships during their time as undergraduates, but also, less than a year after graduating, on average 90% of Manhattan College alumni report that they are employed or in graduate school.

The Forbes list continues Manhattan College’s national recognition as a top school in preparing its graduates for successful careers. Last month, the 2017 PayScale rankings placed Manhattan in the top 4% of all United States colleges and universities in return on investment.

The Forbes 2017 Best Value College ranking indexes 300 schools that deliver the best bang for the tuition buck based on tuition costs, school quality, post-graduate earnings, student debt and graduation success. Forbes used data collected from the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and PayScale, the world's largest salary database.
