What Our Students Say

  • Marist College is one of the only institutions of higher learning that recognizes the value that first responders bring to our community, and I wanted to be a part of that community. I also chose to pursue my degree at Marist due to their commitment to educational excellence and diversity.

    Douglas Cyr, MPA ‘17
  • Since starting the Marist MBA program I received a promotion and now have the confidence needed to continue moving up in my career. I have already been able to apply so much of what I learned to my current role and feel I have gained leadership and managerial skills that I had previously lacked. Having a graduate degree from Marist has left me feeling excited about the endless opportunities ahead!

  • The best experience I had as a student was participating in a research study with my classmates and program director Peter del Rosario and then presenting this research to my future peers at the NYMHCA convention in Albany. This experience further demonstrated the Marist faculty's dedication to the field and the MHC program specifically.
