Earning a graduate degree can be a great way to jump-start your career. But where you earn your degree can be nearly as important as what you earn it in—especially for busy working professionals.

“Balancing school with the demands of a career and family can be tough,” says Collette Garrity, Vice President of Enrollment Management at Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), a private nonprofit institution that offers programs designed specifically for working professionals. “It’s a question of finding a graduate program that’s the right fit for your life.” Garrity suggests the following five criteria as a good place to start.

While accreditation isn’t a strict indication of quality, with an unaccredited program you do run the risk that credits earned may not be accepted by another institution or qualify you to sit for certain professional examinations. MCNY is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), and the school’s graduate programs are approved by and registered with the New York State Department of Education (NYSED), so credits awarded are recognized by other accredited institutions. The MBA programs are also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

Flexibility and convenience
When and where are classes held? How long will it take to earn your degree? MCNY offers accelerated graduate degree programs with flexible evening, weekend, and online schedules. A three-semester master’s program at MCNY can be completed in as little as one year while working full time. MCNY’s new campus at 60 West Street is in the heart of the Financial District, which is not only the business capital of the world but also home to many of New York’s human service and emergency management agencies. The College also opened a new location in the Bronx this summer.

Career opportunity
Will you get the hands-on experience you need to stand out from other candidates vying for that next promotion or job opportunity? All MCNY programs use a unique model, Purpose-Centered Education, which combines classroom instruction with applied knowledge and practice gained through Constructive Action (CA), a workable plan of action for a student’s employer that seeks to resolve a particular workplace situation. MCNY’s MBA programs also feature a global study abroad component to immerse students in the workings of our increasingly global economy.

Cost/financial aid
Make sure you examine all costs associated with the program, including tuition, books and supplies, and miscellaneous fees. Then review the types of financial assistance available such as loans and scholarships. At MCNY an experienced financial aid advisor can sit down with you to make this process easier.

Just as organizations have corporate cultures, so too do graduate schools. You’ll want to identify one that fits your style, ideals, personality, and comfort level so you’ll have a greater chance to succeed. At MCNY our Learning Commons gives students access to academic support resources and the campus library as well as spaces to collaborate with their peers, faculty, and staff.

There’s no better way to truly determine if the grad program “fits” your life, however, than seeing it for yourself. Attend an upcoming Graduate Information Session at MCNY. RSVP at or call 888-414-4794 to speak to an admissions counselor.
