Testimonials

WILLIAM MARSALA ’15, CIVIL ENGINEER FOR THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF PARKS & RECREATION

“The civil engineering M.S. program professors are outstanding — some of them are the best and brightest in the field. The greatest benefit of this experience I think is the ability to take what was learned in class and apply it to the real world.”

SYLVAIN BLANCHARD ‘12, MECHANICAL ENGINEER AT STV GROUP

“Being part of the Mechanical Engineering master’s program was just amazing. I am now working as a mechanical engineer in New York. What I am doing is exactly related to what I learned at Manhattan College. Through my job, I even had the chance to go inside the One World Trade Center tower during construction. I couldn't have experienced such a great start in my career without Manhattan College.”

JOHN MORAN, MBA STUDENT

“My MBA courses are pretty hands-on. They’re very discussion-based, and we do a lot of case studies. It’s nice that there’s variability within the program — I’m in a data analysis class, a corporate finance class, I took a leadership class. There are definitely different courses you can take that fit your needs. You have options.

I found an internship by posting my resume on JasperLink, which is the Center for Career Development’s online job board. I had an interview with Argus Information & Advisory Services within a week. This internship was more focused on forecasting and financial analysis. It combined my programming skills with my financial skills, which is something I want to do later on in the real world after I finish my MBA.”
