2020-2021 Catalog


Accountants are key professionals in today’s business world. They use their accounting knowledge, computer proficiency and business strategy skills to participate in major corporate decisions. The problem-solving skills and analytical abilities that accountants contribute to the management team are central to the success of any business. Accounting is both an essential business skill and an excellent beginning for those seeking positions requiring business leadership.

The Accounting minor at MMC prepares students for careers in public accounting, private sector firms, nonprofit organizations and government agencies. The program combines training in accounting principles with courses that give students a firm grounding in current business practices and communication skills. Through the integration of business and liberal arts, students obtain the knowledge, sensitivities, and skills mandated by an increasingly complex, globally interdependent, and technologically sophisticated world.

Outside the classroom, MMC students benefit from New York City’s sophisticated business environment with its vast array of Wall Street, Madison Avenue, and Fortune 500 companies. Accounting minors have an opportunity to take internship positions with local, public accounting firms, in some cases as paid interns, thereby gaining valuable work experience before they graduate. Accounting faculty work closely with students to provide résumé preparation, internship advisement and access to a wide range of financial corporations, banks, and accounting firms such as:
