School of Business

Director James Jim Ryerson

Welcome to the School of Business!

The School of Business is one of the three Schools within Marymount University’s College of Business, Innovation, Leadership, and Design (the College of 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, we can prepare you the new world of work at the intersection of business and technology.

For undergraduates, we offer programs in Business (a BBA), Accounting (Accounting BS), Economics (Economics BA and Economics BS), and Fashion Merchandising and Marketing (Fashion Merchandising and Marketing BA). The Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) 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 of data science).  There are 20 minors for BBA students to choose – including a new minor in Entrepreneurship.

The B.S. in Accounting presents students with the same foundational business courses as the BBA, but also offers an extensive set of accounting specific courses. While in terms of Economics, students can choose between a more qualitative economics track (the BA in Economics) or a more quantitative, technology focused track (the BS in Economics).

For graduate students, we offer programs in Business (MBA) and Online Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA). However, a unique aspect of our state-of-the-art masters programs is the ability to earn a dual degree in a time-effective and cost-effective manner.  Because of our partnership with our School of Technology, you could earn a dual degree with an MBA and an MS in Cybersecurity.  Those options, and more, graduate business dual degrees are all available. 

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 welcome to engage in a dialogue where we can learn more about you, and you can learn more about us.
