Established in 1853, the College was founded upon the Lasallian tradition of excellence in teaching, respect for individual dignity, and commitment to social justice inspired by the innovator of modern pedagogy, John Baptist de La Salle. Manhattan combines intellectual excellence with a strong emphasis on personal and moral growth. This winning combination attracts students from across the United States and around the world.

Manhattan College takes advantage of its New York location and understands that graduate students need flexibility, quality, and alumni networking opportunities. The graduate programs offer small classes and have program directors who are leaders in their fields. The flexible programs include mostly evening and some weekend classes.

The graduate division offers programs leading to master’s degrees through the Schools of Business, Education, Engineering, Science, and Continuing and Professional Studies. In fall 2011 the College launched an M.B.A. program for qualified Manhattan undergraduate students, and in 2015 the M.B.A. opened its doors to external candidates looking to pursue the program. The M.B.A. also offers a Bridge Program to non-business degree students to help them fulfill the prerequisites of the M.B.A. Please visit for more details.

The School of Education is committed to the mission of Manhattan College to provide a contemporary, student-centered education that embodies the Lasallian traditions of scholarship, excellence in teaching, respect for individual dignity, and commitment to social justice. The additional goal of the graduate programs is to prepare self-directed, reflective, scholarly professionals dedicated to the highest standards for themselves and those they serve. Professionals are prepared in the fields of counseling, school leadership, and special education. Starting in spring 2016, the School of Education will also offer a fully online option in Instructional Design and Delivery.

Engineering graduate programs provide the academic and professional needs of those who are already engaged in engineering or those who, having completed their undergraduate degrees, desire to enter immediately into advanced study. The engineering graduate programs are intended to prepare professionals for advanced-level technical and administrative positions or admission to doctoral programs at other institutions.

Manhattan College offers two master’s programs within its School of Science. The M.S. in Mathematics is designed for those who aspire to become secondary math teachers. The M.S. in Applied Mathematics—Data Analytics prepares students for careers in business, industry, and government.

The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership program is designed to provide working professionals with the knowledge and skills essential for successful leadership in a variety of sectors. The 33-credit accelerated program focuses on the synthesis of theory and practice of leading organizations in diverse settings, including corporate, public, and nonprofit environments. The program’s framework affords students an opportunity to develop the conceptual tools necessary for leading effectiveness efforts. It takes 16–20 months to complete. Each course is seven weeks long. Classes meet once a week for four hours with supplementary work online. In addition to being offered in the hybrid format, the M.S. in Organizational Leadership will also be offered fully online starting in spring 2016.

The tight-knit College community comprises 3,970 students. With a 12:1 student-faculty ratio, our professors know students personally and care about their success. The majority of students live on our traditional campus, which is just a subway ride from the city center. Many students also take advantage of the College’s New York City location and intern at some of the world’s leading companies.
