School of Business

Director James Jim Ryerson

Welcome to the School of Business, one of three Schools within Marymount University’s College of Business, Innovation, Leadership, and Technology (BILT). The School of Business is proud to offer a wide variety of highly customizable undergraduate and graduate business programs to equip you for success in the “What’s Next Economy.” And because of our partnership with BILT’s School of Technology and Innovation, we can prepare you for the new world of work at the intersection of business and technology.

For undergraduates, we offer programs in Business (B.B.A.), Accounting (Accounting B.S.), Economics (Economics B.S.), and Fashion Merchandising and Marketing (Fashion Merchandising and Marketing B.A.). The Bachelor in Business Administration (B.B.A.) program is unique in that it offers a breadth of understanding of business as well the opportunity to explore more deeply (via minors) traditional areas of business (e.g., Marketing or Finance), or topics with a technology emphasis (e.g., Cybersecurity or Data Science). There are 20 minors for B.B.A. students to choose from, including a new minor in Entrepreneurship.

The B.S. in Accounting presents students with the same foundational business courses as the B.B.A., but also offers an extensive set of Accounting-specific courses. In Economics, students are offered a quantitative, technology-focused track (the B.S. in Economics).

For graduate students, we offer programs in Business (M.B.A.) and our Online Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA). However, a unique aspect of our state-of-the-art master’s programs is the ability to earn a dual degree in a time-effective and cost-effective manner. Because of our partnership with the School of Technology and Innovation, you could earn a dual degree with an M.B.A. and an M.S. in Cybersecurity. This option, and several other dual degrees, are available to our graduate Business students.

Please spend some time exploring our website. You’ll see how customized our programs can be and how we embrace the intersection of business and technology. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re always available to engage in a dialogue in which we can learn more about you, and you can learn more about us.
