Craig Mosier, Bachelor of Business Administration Alumnus

April 27, 2010

Recently, we asked Craig Mosier, a recent alumnus of the Bachelor of Business Administration program some questions about his experience at MCNY and where it has led him.

What made you choose MCNY to pursue your degree?

“I moved to New York City in the summer of 2006. I had started my education at a small liberal arts college in Ohio and was looking to finish my degree while also working full-time in New York. I found MCNY and realized all of this was possible, in the same time frame as my initial college plan. MCNY offered huge advantages that most other colleges simply did not. MCNY’s Constructive Action method to teaching made it possible for me to apply what I was learning in the classroom to my actual experience in the workplace.”

How did you apply what you learned in the classroom toward your career?

“I applied much of what I learned in the classroom toward my career. The interaction with professors who were not only well-versed in their field, but also brought actual professional experience to the table was priceless. At MCNY, I was given the opportunity to intern at a large corporation directly relating to the field I was interested in pursuing post-graduation. I feel the skills and experience I gained from my internship really challenged me to both graduate on top as well as provide me with contacts in my job search after graduation. My internship really gave me an advantage over other candidates and led me to my current position.”

Where are you working now?

“I was recently offered a personal banker position at Citibank. I have to believe this is a direct result of the opportunities I was given at MCNY, specifically my internship. I can remember first walking through the doors of MCNY and seeing nothing but promise ahead. MCNY helped me realize my career goals and better myself as a person. I highly recommend MCNY to any student looking to further their personal and professional goals.”

Any other accomplishments you would like to share?

“I currently serve as one of the LIVESTRONG Army Leaders for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and am an active cancer advocate. I also am a runner and a cyclist. I completed a marathon in 2008 and look forward to competing in a triathlon some time in the next year.”

Reflections of Graduation: MS Ed., Master of Science in Childhood Education

September 8, 2009

MCNY recently celebrated its 32nd commencement ceremony.

Throughout the summer, we posted  reflections from the graduates about their experiences.

Last but not least we have Lesile Kaplan, a graduate of the Master of Science in Education program:

A little over a year ago I enrolled in the one year Masters of Science in Childhood Education program. From the beginning, I set myself a goal to graduate with a 4.0 GPA. Everyone thought I was crazy to put that kind of pressure on myself during such a rigorous program. But my perseverance and determination, was the direct result of my philosophy that if one puts one’s mind to it, one can achieve anything in life. And all of you graduating here today are proof of that..”

Reflections of Graduation: Bachelor of Business Administration

July 28, 2009

MCNY recently celebrated its 32nd commencement ceremony.

Throughout the summer, we will continue to post reflections from the graduates about their experiences.

This one is from Nerissa Williams, a graduate of the Bachelor of  Business Administration program:

When I began my journey as a student at MCNY, I did so with joy and sorrow, joy at the prospect of earning a degree and sorrow at the thought of leaving my loved ones and family to venture into an unknown world far away from the place I call home.

Indeed, on my first day of school, I quickly realized there weren’t any other Grenadians in my class. However, the friendliness of the faculty, staff and my fellow classmates soon laid all my fears to rest and before long I came to feel that MCNY was my home away from home.

Reflections of Graduation: Associates of Business Administration

June 30, 2009

MCNY recently celebrated its 32nd commencement ceremony.

Throughout the summer, we will continue to reflections from the graduates about their experiences.

This one is from Kassandra Michelle Thompson, a graduate of the Associates of Science in Business Administration:

My choice to further my education was a difficult decision initially. As a single parent, working a full time job, and studying in an accelerated program was very challenging. There were plenty of days when I wanted to give up. But I am a living testament to the fact that no matter how large the obstacles, if one puts one’s mind and heart to it, no obstacle is too great to overcome.

MCNY MBA ‘08 Teri Coaxum was selected for TNJ’s 40 Under Forty Achievement Award!

June 20, 2009

MCNY MBA ’08 alumna Teri Coaxum is being honored as one of TNJ’S 40 Under-Forty Dynamic Black Achievers

Teri Coaxum – Deputy State Director for Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY), New York City, Age: 37

Inspired by her grandmother, Teri Coaxum dreamed of a career in public service, with an eye on law, especially its pinnacle of power, the Supreme Court. “People would often take my grandmother’s kindness for weakness and take advantage of her; I wanted to be in a place to help people like that,” explains Coaxum, deputy state director for Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY).

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from John Jay College in 1994, she volunteered for New York Assemblyman Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn). “Understanding your candidate and your opponent, engaging the public in the issues of the day, as well as meeting and speaking to people you never would have met otherwise – all those things thrilled me,” she exclaims. “I drank the Kool-Aid of politics and public service; I was hooked!”

In 1997, Coaxum became project manager for the Community Relations Bureau in the office of Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes. “I covered six precincts, and encouraged my two daughters by taking them with me to meetings,” explains Coaxum, who is pursuing a law degree. “When I left the DA’s office, they replaced me with three people.”

Sen. Schumer recruited Coaxum in 2004, making her the first African-American woman deputy state director. She oversees the office’s day-to-day operations and makes sure that everyone, including the senator, is on the same page. She still dreams of the Supreme Court. “In the meantime, I get to help a lot more people on this side of justice.”

Quote: “I am blessed and highly favored.”
