M.S in Human Resource Management and Organizational Effectiveness

Reaches 25-Year Milestone


Tuesday, June 12 BBQ and Anniversary Celebration


(Purchase, N.Y.: May 15, 2018)  Manhattanville College’s School of Business is celebrating 35 years preparing today’s professionals for tomorrow’s business. Originally named the School of Adult and Special Programs in 1983, the school’s name changed to School of Graduate and Professional Studies (also known as GPS) in 1993. Four years ago, the School of Graduate and Professional Studies changed its name to the Manhattanville School of Business to best reflect its revolved direction. Although the school’s name has had several changes, its commitment to its students has remained the same, evolving to keep ahead of business industry demands as well as the needs of adult learners.


On Tuesday, June 12, the School of Business will be celebrating two major milestones, 35 years since its founding and 25 years of its very first graduate business program, the Masters of Science degree in Organizational Management and Human Resources Development. The celebration will include a networking BBQ, open to the community, alumni, business partner organizations, and prospective students. Following the barbeque, there will be an alumni panel sharing their experiences with fellow alumni and prospective students.


“In three and one-half decades, we have graduated hundreds of talented leaders who hold important posts in a wide array of businesses and organizations that benefit from this school’s approach to professional education," said Steve Albanese, Dean of the Manhattanville School of Business. "We look forward to educating and graduating future generations of successful executives and contributors to area economies and leveraging our business school accreditation."


The Manhattanville School of business continues to grow and evolve with its diverse offering of programs such as six Master of Science degrees, four accelerated adult undergraduate degrees (APPEAL programs), several dual Bachelor’s/Master’s degree programs, six graduate advanced certificates, an Institute for Managing Risk, an array of professional development offerings, and the prominent Women’s Leadership Institute.


In 2016, the M.S. in Human Resource Management and Organizational Effectiveness has been named as one of the best programs in the country by College Choice based on outstanding academic reputation, student retention, networking, internship opportunities among other criteria. The School of Business at Manhattanville College has seen hundreds of graduates of this program become HR leaders in this region’s major corporations and organizations.
