And that’s the definition of success.

An internship is an ideal way for students to hone their skills while they gain real-world business experience and build connections to reputable employers. Marist School of Management students have completed internships with companies such as American Express, Merrill Lynch, IBM, PepsiCo, and many other national companies. In addition, our extensive Alumni Network offers access to Marist graduates who are enthusiastic about providing solid advice on business, nonprofit management, or public service careers.

New York City Career Trek

Since its inception in 2014, students who participated in the Career Trek have received and accepted offers in internships and permanent job opportunities from participating companies.

In addition to visiting companies, students participate in a networking event in the evening.  This provides them the opportunity to enhance their interpersonal skills in meeting and introducing themselves to strangers and selling themselves in a friendly, professional, and non-threatening environment.  Alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Marist are also invited and attend.   Alumni understand the purpose of the networking event is to assist students in finding internships and jobs opportunities.   

Below are examples of companies that have participated in previous Career Treks:

AICPA, Allied Integrated Marketing, Amazon, Bloomberg, Cboe Global Markets, Cisco, Citibank, Evercore, Goldman Sachs, Haymarket Media, IBM, JP Morgan, Neuberger Berman, Northstar Travel Group, Oath (AOL), Ogilvy, Pfizer, Sony, Sprint, Talpion Fund Management, TIAA, UBS, Viacom, Voya, and Withum.
