The mission of Manhattan College is to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience that prepares graduates for lives of personal development, professional success, civic engagement, and service to their fellow human beings.


The College pursues this mission through programs that integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering.


Manhattan College is ranked as one of the top schools in the nation for having graduates that get jobs and earn high salaries. Career preparation starts freshman year and continues past graduation with our career services for students and alumni.
