Student Success

At Marist, we measure student success by more than just grades or salary in a first job: we help our students fully develop their intellect, character, and skills.  That being said, our students go on to highly successful careers in a variety of professional fields, attend some of the most respected graduate schools, and are awarded some of the nation’s most prestigious fellowships.  The strong foundation students receive prepares them to take on the many challenges and opportunities that await after graduation.  At the same time – and just as importantly – a Marist education instills a firm commitment to serving others and promoting the social good.  No matter what path career path our students ultimately choose, the Marist educational experience prepares them to lead lives that are both rewarding and meaningful.  And that’s the definition of success.

The School of Management prepares students to excel in the world of business. An emphasis on stimulating academic coursework coupled with ethical responsibility helps mold students into the business leaders of tomorrow.

A robust internship program gives students the opportunity to “test-drive” a career track. School of Management students have done internships at American Express, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo, IBM, and numerous other companies. The Alumni Career Network offers online access to Marist graduates who are ready and willing to offer advice.

Within six months of graduation, 97 percent of those surveyed were employed, attending graduate school, or both. Notable placements include positions at Ernst & Young, Morgan Stanley, and Moody’s Investors Service.
