Business at Molloy
In the Molloy Business program, we begin with the end in mind: to prepare our Business students to be successful business professionals. Molloy’s “executive-based faculty” help open doors for our students to get them “out of the stack of résumés.” We do this by focusing on the academic and professional skills we believe will give them a competitive edge:
• Writing skills. Students will em-ploy written communication skills through the use of individual and/or team research projects.
• Technical skills. Students will acquire quantitative and modeling skills to analyze and evaluate current business problems and solutions.
• Public speaking. Students will employ oral communication skills, effectively emphasizing professional presentation and/or team participation.
• Ethics. Students will integrate a strong ethical thought process into all their business decision-making.
Business program students obtain professional internships throughout their career, sometimes as early as their freshman year. We are able to create these opportunities for Molloy Business students because our executive faculty have established a professional network in a variety of different industries.
