Welcome to the Metropolitan College of New York website. MCNY is a unique urban college that serves students from across the New York City metropolitan area and the world.

Most MCNY students study full time and balance their studies with work and family responsibilities. MCNY’s commitment to the integration of work experiences with classroom learning facilitates this balance and makes it possible for conscientious students to accelerate their studies. At MCNY you can earn a bachelor’s degree in less than three years and a master’s degree in as little as a year.

This is a great opportunity for working adults to advance their careers, for students leaving high school or transferring from community college to accelerate the college experience, for veterans returning from service to use GI Bill benefits as expeditiously as possible, and for workers displaced by the present economic dislocations to retool and re-credential. It is also a wonderful opportunity for international students, who can minimize the costs of lengthy residence while enjoying the benefits of internship placements in the greatest city in the world.

I came to MCNY in May 2008. I found a committed and caring faculty and staff, an innovative curriculum, and a college committed to serving the people, social service agencies and businesses of the New York area. During the past year, the most challenging economic period since the 1930s, MCNY has experienced solid growth in new student enrollment. This is a strong endorsement of our program by the people most important to us, our students. We also hosted a successful 10-year review by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, resulting in reaffirmation of our accreditation, and made significant upgrades in our facilities and our computer technology support for students.

Please accept my invitation to cruise our website at your leisure. You’ll find a college that is different from most, highly innovative, and committed to help you accomplish your educational goals in a time frame that doesn’t artificially slow you down. Then, pay a visit to our lively campus in the Financial District, spend some time with our staff, and explore the ways in which we can help you realize your potential as a student and a world citizen. We look forward to serving you.

Dr. Vinton Thompson, President
