Class of 2019, Major: Business with a concentration in Leadership and a minor in Psychology
On the whole, my internship experience increased my confidence in communicating my research to those outside my field and improved my intercultural skills. My experience of evaluating the financial and socio-economic impact of the beneficiary families has given me a real understanding of the practical applications of health policy on communities as well as its impact on the economy.
Alexander Aldridge ’19
Class of 2019, B.S. in Marketing
“What I learned in class could be directly applied to my internship. What I touched on more was the real component. People cannot be quantified into charts and graphs, we are far too complex for that. This internship showed me that. I plan to have a long career in marketing and brand management.”
Class of 2022, BA Business with Fashion Marketing concentration and BA Fine Arts with Studio Art concentration
“MMC has given me the ability to successfully balance being a single mom and full-time student, while still providing for my family. My time at MMC has also allowed me to find myself and carve my path. The school and my professors were extremely supportive of me, my talents, and my plans for the future. I am extremely grateful for my time at Marymount Manhattan, which has shown my children it is never too late to follow your dreams, and that anything is possible with focus, determination, and the right support. I know my journey does not end here; this is just the beginning of a new adventure. I am so excited to see what happens next.”

Class of 2023, Double major with BS in Management and International Business
“Going into Marymount, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted my career path to look like. I just decided to major in business as it felt like the most reasonable thing to do because of how versatile it is. However, as I continued to take more business courses, the major became more and more appealing to me. However, it was not just the topics that were discussed that led to me to want to pursue this field, it was also the incredible professors at Marymount who helped guide me to be the best professional version of myself. I am forever grateful for the many opportunities and memories this small college on the Upper East Side has given me!”
Brenelle Braganza ’19
Class of 2019, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Marketing triple-major
Accounting and Economics minors
I credit Marymount Manhattan as a school that brought out the best version of myself. Instrumental to my success were the Business Division faculty and staff, the valuable internship opportunities to which they connected me, and the rigorous preparation they provided.
“I’ve been part of so many organizations because being a student leader means helping other student leaders,” she quips.“ At MMC, I was involved in diverse extracurricular activities on campus, including serving as the President of the Student Government Association (SGA); Treasurer of Unbranded (Fashion Marketing Association); Vice- President of Global Citizen Society; Cultural Peer Mentor and Peer Leader for the NYC Seminar.”
Paloma Brooks’ 22
Class of 2022, B.A. in Business with a concentration in Media and Arts Management and minors in Music and Music Industry
A highlight of my studies at MMC was my internship at Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Branding, Sales & Marketing department. My experience included: assisting professional jazz musicians, going to concerts, conducting market research for an upcoming album, and organizing inventory for the in-house record label. After my internship I was selected to present my work at Honor’s Day at MMC. I am grateful to the business department faculty who were so excited and supportive of my collaboration in music and business.”
I’ve always wanted to combine my love of music with my interest in business and my studies at MMC support that. MMC’s business classes make me a better, well-rounded artist because they provide me with tools to be more independent and make informed decisions behind the scenes of making music.
