Top-Ranked Business Programmes

Further burnishing its image, Marywood University’s College of Professional Studies was recently notified that its Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme secured a top spot in’s Top 50 MBA Schools rankings due to its valuable academic and career resources for MBA students, the quality of education in business, dedicated faculty members, and more.

“Marywood University offers its MBA programme on its 115-acre Scranton, Pennsylvania, campus and fully online. The online classes are delivered live for those who have the time to view them as they happen, providing the chance to participate with professors and cohorts in real-time discussions that are also recorded—so you can access them whenever it’s convenient for you,” notes.

Another advantage to joining forces with Marywood University and its School of Business and Global Innovation is that Marywood is the only institution in the region that offers a bachelor’s degree in aviation management.

Granting you the chance to combine aviation management with a business degree, pilots working in the field today find that having a business degree is a great asset to their professional career advancement opportunities.

Following his passions to become a pilot, Marywood aviation management student and veteran Tyler McAlpine understood the value that a hybrid business degree would bring to his career.

“I was looking at the bigger picture. I knew that I could have played football in college, and earned a degree by doing so, but, for me, I was looking to grow as a person, with a goal in mind of maturing and finding what I was most interested in pursuing,” he explains.

With a wide range of high-quality academic programmes on offer at Marywood, there’s something to suit all business students’ aspirations.

Marywood Student Motivation

Sought-after by multi-national enterprises and influential international organisations, Marywood graduates are highly employable.

Aviation students are regularly attending networking events organized by their on-campus Aviators Club and are visited by airline recruitment teams from companies such as Republic Airways and ExpressJet Airlines. Additionally, the School of Business and Global Innovation regularly holds speed networking events with local professionals and alumni to provide students with invaluable networking opportunities.

Always giving back to the community, Marywood business students use their skills to get ahead in both the world of business and the world of social good.

For example, the university’s Accounting and Finance Club held a “Money Matters” workshop at the Boys and Girls Club of Northeastern Pennsylvania, where Marywood business students taught Boys and Girls Club members (ages 10-14) about the importance of savings and checking accounts, how to start saving once they get their first job, and how to learn from budgeting activities. This is extremely valuable education—how many among us can proudly say we were taught the merits of financial management at such an early age?

Perhaps it is this clever balance between business, innovation, and social good that leads to graduate and undergraduate students consistently winning top awards at international competitions or, if not that, it could be due to the university’s outstanding CPA pass rate.
