Why did you choose MCNY?
I had been working for 19 years and my supervisor at Visiting Nurse Service encouraged me to go to college. I chose MCNY because the people were welcoming and the process was easy. I got my undergrad and masters at the same time. I chose MCNY and never looked back!

What is different about MCNY?
I met a lot of people from all walks of life with all different ideas. That taught me how to deal with different kinds of people and cultures - which I still do.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
I was working at Visting Nurse Service in the acute care department. I dealt with patients filing their paperwork, but the paperwork never got back in time for the company to get paid. So I focused on finding ways to fix that. I workshopped ideas of how to fix the problem, got a consensus of the best ways to fix it, then figured out how to get the paperwork back in time to get paid. I solved a real problem and my company began using the system I came up with. I use the same problem-solving skills in my job now.

BA, American Urban Studies, '14


What is different about MCNY?
I appreciate the small classes and that the professors are focused on students. They are really concerned about your education. I applied to other schools but only MCNY reached out to me personally.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
My goal is to one day help my home country in Africa by working with the United Nations through a humanitarian NGO. Right now I have an internship with the International Rescue Committee, one of the biggest humanitarian NGOs. As part of my studies at MCNY I conducted ethnographic research on the West African refugees in New York City. When I presented my research to the International Rescue Committee, they realized this is a group they needed to work with - no one had done this before. Because of the research I had done through MCNY I created a way to help these people.

What is different about MCNY?
MCNY has developed a culture that prepares leaders to impact the world. At MCNY, not only was I able to establish a theoretical framework for managing people and training leaders, I was also able to apply this framework to my goals.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
I have a bachelors in Human Services and now, with my MBA in General Management, MCNY has empowered me to build leaders that will impact organizations, communities and cultures. The successes behind many institutions are the people who are steering the process. My goal is to steer leaders in the direction of success by helping them identify career paths.


Jean Paul Roggiero,
MPA, Emergency and Disaster Management, '06



What is different about MCNY?
The quality of the professors. They had a strong commitment to making sure the students were well prepared for the work they'd be doing. The education was not all theoretical. We learned exactly how to go about managing and initiating a project from beginning to end.

I also appreciated that the Emergency Management program was not focused on just one sector. The professors exposed us to various agencies we could be working with, whether it was the banking sector for business continuity or various paths we could take in local, state, and federal government. I was able to see what I really wanted to do. Even though I knew I wanted to be in a healthcare setting I could easily transfer what I learned to other sectors.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
At MCNY I developed a way to enhance a hospital's emergency management plan in regards to a small pox outbreak. The plan I created integrated efforts from the community as a whole in order to have a more robust response to an emergency. That experience was valuable to my future - I learned how to carry out a more effective response. The work I did in school led to what I'm doing now as Senior Program Manager for the national not-for-profit, Primary Care Development Corporation.


Tamu Arnoux,
BPS, Human Services, '13


What is different about MCNY?
The hands-on experience. While you're learning the tools you need, you implement them and explore outcomes: how your plan worked, did it work out well, how you could improve it, etc. The internships are fantastic.

I also liked the cohort model - that you stay with the same class throughout. You bond with the other students and support each other when you struggle.

How did your education lead to what you do now?

As part of my coursework I made a business plan for a mock non-profit. I knew I wanted to help people but didn't even know what transitional housing was until I started creating the business plan. Through the process I researched and created transitional housing for parolees and people with drug or alcohol addiction. And that led directly to what I do now. I currently run two houses and am aiming for a third. I never thought I would have my own business while in school. Now I'm living my dream!

Veronica Singh,
MSED, Dual Childhood/Special Education, '13


What is different about MCNY?
I liked the school's philosophy for a purpose-centered education - being in the classroom and being in the field from day one. You don't just focus on theory but also the practical side. It makes a big difference doing the hands on.

And I was surprised at how accessible the professors were. I earned my bachelor's degree from a bigger school, and I wasn't able to reach professors. But at MCNY their doors were always open. I was able to reach them by phone, email or in person.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
At MCNY I spent time co-teaching a first-grade class. In that situation, one teacher focused on special needs students and one teacher focused on general education. I learned first-hand how to connect to students through this collaboration. Every day in my own classroom I use the knowledge I learned while student teaching.


Hanan Mountajy,
AS, Business, '13


How did you choose MCNY?
I learned about MCNY while I was serving in Iraq. I was looking for military friendly, yellow ribbon schools in Manhattan. It helped that I was able to start some of my classes online since I didn't know if I would be transferred. Also I'm not traditional and I like to try different things so MCNY was perfect. You get to go outside the classroom and do research.

How did your education lead to what you do now?
I want to open my own lifestyle boutique of home goods. At MCNY I worked on a business plan to make that happen. I conducted market research on everything from the name to the logo. I didn't know how much I needed to know! MCNY gave me all the guidance and information I needed. Now I have an amazing vision of how the boutique will be right down to the design.

What is different about MCNY?
I liked that the MCNY program was specifically designed for people who work.
