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.

Graduates Cite Positive Satisfaction with MCNY Education

July 21, 2009

If you’re considering attending MCNY, you might find the perceptions of real MCNY students and alumni to be of interest in your college selection process. MCNY routinely surveys recent graduates to gauge their opinion of the education provided. The results below, from the 2007-08 graduating class, clearly show that the vast majority (86%) are satisfied with the College.

A very high level of MCNY graduates (80%) said they would recommend the degree program they just completed to a friend considering college. Common reasons to encourage other students to attend MCNY include:

  • Accelerated nature of MCNY’s programs
  • Convenience of academic schedule
  • Quality of instructional programs
  • Ability of the academic programs to enhance professional careers

MCNY is committed to enhancing the educational experience of all of its students. Student feedback from the Annual Graduation Survey, and other outcome assessments, are used by academic planners and administrators to make improvements to programs and services.

MCNY Graduates are Promoted and Earn More

Some of the reasons for this strong willingness to recommend MCNY may stem from the results produced in the employment area. 78% of recent graduates report they are working in full-time positions and 8% are working in part-time jobs. Others are pursuing additional education. MCNY graduates are most commonly employed in the following areas:

  • 37% Nonprofit Human Service/Social Service
  • 15% Healthcare
  • 11% Government
  • 9% Media and Communications

Nearly three in ten 2007-08 graduates (29%) report being promoted since starting at MCNY. Graduates also report earning more income. On average, undergraduate salaries increased $5,000 and graduate level student pay increased $4,972. Considering the accelerated nature of the programs (2 years eight months for undergraduate and typically one year for graduate) this is a significant accomplishment.

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 Student Satisfaction Continues to Improve

June 23, 2009

MCNY has always been interested in serving its students well. That is why the College has conducted student satisfaction studies during the past several years using the nationally-recognized Noel-Levitz Adult Student Priorities Study (ASPS). In 2008, student perceptions continued to improve as the College received an Overall Satisfaction rating of 5.39 out of a possible 7.00.

“The trend of consistently improving student satisfaction scores is testament to the effort faculty, staff and administration have invested in enhancing the total learning environment at the College,” said MCNY president Vinton Thompson.

Overall student satisfaction with MCNY experience.

The improvement in Overall Satisfaction was driven primarily by better scores in Academic Advising and Service Excellence, as well as increased levels of satisfaction in Admissions and Financial Aid, Campus Climate, and Registration Effectiveness.

MCNY uses correlation analysis to identify areas to prioritize for improvement as part of its strategic plan. Students indicate that Quality Teaching and the Campus Climate are highly related to Overall Satisfaction.

Key Study Areas Correlated with Overall Satisfaction

  1. Instructional Effectiveness
  2. Campus Climate
  3. Service Excellence
  4. Academic Advising

MCNY’s faculty and administration will use the ASPS results, and other student outcomes measurements, to make targeted improvements in a wide variety of areas as part of the College’s 2009-2014 Strategic Plan.

Look for future communication on the College’s 2009-2014 Strategic Planning efforts and other Student Outcome Measurements and Assessments in this area of the MCNY website.

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.”

BUILDING EXCELLENCE: TEACHING FOR THE 21 ST CENTURY ECONOMIES!

May 12, 2009

Metropolitan College of New York provides you a pathway to a teaching career in our 12 month Master’s of education program. The intensity of the program under expert guidance by practicing educators enables you to be prepared to meet the demands of the 21st Century needed by both professional educators and students alike.

The intensive three semester rigorous curriculum imbues prospective educators with the skills, knowledge and professional dispositions required by our schools.
The ultimate experience at Metropolitan College enables our prospective teachers to create environments that excite and motivate students to strive for excellence.

As a Principal of 28 years and an educator for over 42 years I know the qualities required and needed by educators to meet the academic, social and intellectual needs of students in the 21st century. The focus on maintaining high standards is critical and this is most pervasive throughout the curriculum at Metropolitan College.

Our goal is to provide students with the impetus to become thinkers, doers and risk-takers. The breaking of the glass ceiling our politicians talk about is superseded in our Masters in Education program. Our emphasis is in creating stained glass windows in every classroom. Classrooms where standards are high and we meet the needs of all the children and they are inspired to achieve at the highest level.

How do we measure our success? Since the program began, more than four years ago, every student who graduated and has since applied for a teaching position, has found gainful employment in our schools. There, everyday, they are ensuring the success of the young students as they move on through elementary schools as eager learners who expect only the best from their teachers.
