Manhattan College was founded in 1853 and offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. On the graduate level, we offer more than 25 graduate degrees and advanced certificates in eight distinct disciplines. Our graduate programs are highlighted by small classes, expert faculty and hands-on internships, practicum and consulting projects with real world organizations.
Manhattan has received many accolades for how well it prepares students for successful careers as well as the quality of its education, affordability and career outcomes.
Manhattan College offers students the best of both worlds: a beautiful 23-acre campus with a close-knit community and homey atmosphere, plus easy access to the most exciting city in the world — New York. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Riverdale, in New York City, the campus is known for its beautiful buildings and green landscape. Midtown is just 10 miles from campus. Our New York City location means you'll have access to top internships and full-time job opportunities with industry-leading organizations.
Career preparation starts your first year and continues past graduation with career services for students and alumni. You'll have access to on-campus career fairs and employment opportunities. Top employers for our graduate include Apple, Ernst & Young, ExxonMobil, JPMorgan Chase and NBC Universal. Plus, eligible students may participate in Optional Practical Training for up to 12 months once they have completed one academic year in their program of study. Longer extensions may be granted to students enrolled in STEM programs.
Manhattan offers graduate students' apartment-style housing at Overlook Manor, located just two blocks from campus. Amenities such as cable, wireless internet and a laundry room are included, and 12-month housing is also an available option.
As a graduate student at Manhattan, you will have free access to our new 5,215-square-foot Fitness Center, featuring state-of-the-art Precor cardio and strength equipment, 18 circuit stations, two functional training stations as well as a free weights station.

“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.”
“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.”
“I really loved the Math Department of Manhattan College. It is a small community, but the professors and people are so nice and they are so inspiring. They are the people that made me love mathematics.”
“The small classrooms are really beneficial. Each individual gets personalized instruction based on their goals so they can learn the skills they need to excel.”
“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.”
