business alumni across 44 states and 32 countries
Business programs focus on developing “T-Shaped Professionals,” students who are well versed in a broad range of abilities and who possess mastery of a skill or process in a specific discipline.
The 4+1 program in Organizational Leadership allows students to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s in only five years by taking graduate-level courses as an undergrad.
Our majors can spend their first three years in Erie and their final year in New York City to graduate with two degrees — a bachelor’s degree from Mercyhurst and an associate degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
A 10,000-square foot studio gives Interior Architecture and Design students 24/7 access to cutting-edge design software, a materials lab, drafting studio and resource library.
The Hospitality Management program has one of the strongest internship programs in the country, offering opportunities with industry-leading hotels, restaurants and convention centers.
