James Matson ’14
Class of 2014
Double major in Business and International Studies, minor in Asian Studies
“Having worked as an intern in the Chinese Works of Art department at Christie’s auction house, I found my experience extremely relevant as it complemented my undergraduate studies at Marymount Manhattan. Graduating with a double major in Business Economics and International Studies, and a minor in Asian Studies, my course work in Mandarin language and Chinese literature, business and history at Marymount has proved extremely relevant to the work I did at Christie’s, helping me to accomplish tasks such as the provenance research for ancient Chinese art.”
James graduated with a B.A. in Business with an Economics concentration and a B.A. in International Studies, as well as a minor in Asian Studies.
James interned in the Chinese Works of Art department at Christie’s auction house as a senior and spent one summer semester studying abroad in China supported by the Eisner Scholarship. The Eisner Scholarship at Marymount Manhattan College was endowed by Edgar and Lucy Eisner and is intended to foster serious study of economic issues by attending an educational institution in Europe or Asia.
Shortly after graduation, James accepted a position in the Business Office at Christie’s, NYC.
