Metropolitan College of New York
Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) is an accredited, non-profit institution founded in 1964 by Audrey Cohen, an innovative educator who believed that a truly effective education could be found at the intersection of academia and real-world experience.
MCNY offers accelerated undergraduate and graduate degree programs at both its downtown Manhattan Campus and Bronx Campus across its three schools: the Audrey Cohen School for Human Services and Education, the School for Public Affairs and Administration, and the School for Business.
MCNY’s main campus is conveniently located in Lower Manhattan in the heart of New York City’s Financial District (FiDi). FiDi is globally recognized as the financial capital of the world, and home to many of the city’s and state’s major business, human services, governmental, educational and emergency management agencies.
In addition to the Manhattan campus, MCNY has a busy Bronx campus which serves students in the Bronx, Queens and Upper Manhattan. The South Bronx, in the midst of a development boom, is quickly becoming a hotspot for business development and MCNY is in the center of it all.
New, modern campuses—which opened in spring 2016—feature great facilities and an exceptionally vibrant atmosphere. Student resources are easily accessible. The Learning Commons is a dynamic space that is home to MCNY’s Office of Academic Support and Library, and is a one-stop-shop for extra and co-curricular activities and support available to the entire MCNY community.
Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) School for Business employs over 100 full-time and adjunct faculty members who are experts in, and currently working in their field of expertise.
MCNY uses a cohort model which creates a greater sense of synergy for classmates throughout their educational journey and into the future providing career and networking support. MBA classes typically have an average of 8 students allowing for more individual attention from professors. Approximately 75 percent of the most recent School for Business MBA class is female, with 13 percent international students. MCNY’s population is socially diverse.
