Did you know Manhattanville College was ranked 12th in the nation as best schools for foreign students by Newsweek's college rankings 2011?
The Manhattanville curriculum nurtures intellectual curiosity and independent thinking. Manhattanville offers challenging academics spanning more than 50 areas of study, taught in small classes with virtually unlimited support and faculty access. Students and professors form close collaborative relationships beginning with the Freshman Seminars, an interdisciplinary survey of the liberal arts required of all freshmen.
Manhattanville's proximity to New York City creates a constant flow of opportunity that brings learning to life. Manhattanville's global perspective is enriched by its role as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) formally associated with the Department of Public Information (DPI) of the United Nations. Select students have an opportunity to intern at the UN as well as to study with an ambassador. Manhattanville is truly known for its phenomenal internship programs. PepsiCo., HBO productions, Morgan Stanley, VH1, NYU Medical, Regis & Kelly Live, and Madison Square Garden are just a few of over 450 places where our students have receive invaluable hands-on experience. These opportunities set the foundation for a successful career after Manhattanville.

Manhattanville College's campus lies in the heart of WESTCHESTER COUNTY in NEW YORK, bordered on the east by the Long Island Sound and on the west by the Hudson River. Being just 30 miles from New York City— the city that calls itself the "Capital of the World"—is one of Manhattanville's many assets. The College provides transportation to the city on weekends and to Manhattan-bound commuter trains during the week so students can take advantage of all New York City has to offer.
Manhattanville students know how to have fun, but they also have a sense of purpose. The College's social conscience is informed by a commitment to serving the community—whether it is defined as the surrounding geographic area, where undergraduates logged 30,000 hours of community service in a year, or as the global community. Manhattanville students actively seek opportunities to serve humanitarian causes in the developing world.
