Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I was very happy with my education at Mercy College. Working full time I was pleased that the degree I was interested in was available online. I also did enjoy the on campus classes that were required. I would say I had a very good experience with the professors and other students.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The school counseling program at Mercy college has well prepared me to enter the counseling field post-graduation. When I was applying to Mercy I was looking for a school that was close to my house as well having great academic standing. Upon my first day at Mercy I was nervous and intimated because graduate courses are more rigorous than undergraduate. The professes are Mercy are challenging and are willing to offer any insight they have within the counseling world. What is very helpful is that most of the professors already have worked as a counseling (school counselor or mental health), so they know the ins and outs of the profession. From my experience the professors are what make the program and I am extremely pleases with all of my professors I have had in my class. Their insight and experience have made my time at Mercy College memorable. I feel that I am ready to take on the counseling field with everything I have learned at Mercy.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020

MERCY COLLEGE My name is M an International student from Kenya - Africa. I graduated from United States International University - Africa, with a bachelor's degree in International Business Administration. I currently work with Africa Initiative for Rural development as a board representative for the youth. I am in pursuit of a Master's degree in Business Administration at Mercy College - New York. I am an Entrepreneur and passionate about business. I chose Mercy College because they provide professional, career-oriented higher education to students from diverse backgrounds. At the heart of the business capital of the world, I shall access a personalized and supportive environment together with caring and effective teaching from faculty and staff who are passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated to student achievement. I hope to be a graduate prepared for a much more successful career, with advanced education, and lifelong learning. An MBA program at this stage in my career forms the first step towards the actualization of my career objectives. My long-run objective is to initiate and manage a large multinational corporation, based in Kenya, that markets, or preferably manufactures, commodities particularly in Agri-business. I will base the business on mixed farming for the production of both plant and animal products such as beef, milk, mutton, fruits and vegetables. As an entrepreneur, one of my highest aspirations is to be the one who establishes and significantly advances, such an enterprise. Therefore, I intend to learn and develop while simultaneously expressing my talents and interests in contribution to societys prosperity. My field of study is important since entrepreneurship plays a big role in economic development worldwide. Studying at Mercy college will enable me to grow and develop in the areas of management theory, hands-on experience, international perspective and networking. I aim at excelling in product management and understanding of consumers needs and commercialize innovative financial products and services on an international scale. I believe that Mercy college has the qualities that best fit my expectations, objective, and background mainly because they provide unmatched personal service to students, who are their first priority. There is the commitment to student success and provision of a challenging real-time academic environment with appropriate support so all students can achieve their fullest potential. I am assured of a great experience and significant advancement towards achieving my academic goals.

As we look forward to the future we often are afraid of the unknown. One of the best way to not be afraid is to be prepared, I do believe Mercy College is the kind of environment where you are tested in classroom as if you were in the real world. With the real world pressure the students becomes better than when they started their education program.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2019

Mercy College is a challenging program that has various modes of instruction available. For me it is great because I live in Miami, but I can still benefit from the instruction given in New York. The online programs are rigorous and really get you to think. While there is an astronomical amount of reading, it is feasible with a student who is meticulous with scheduling.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

Mercy College's Physician Assistant Program's staff are amazing! From applying, to interviewing, to starting the program the staff have always been there with any and all types of help. I am beyond surprised with how helpful their financial services office has been through out the whole process. They reached out to me before I can even reach out to them, explaining every little thing that needed to be done in order to receive and accept my financial aid. They were still very happy to assist when I called them two days later with various questions. Although this is a very rigorous curriculum there is an unbelievable amount of support from the professors, staff, and students. Alumni also visit and assist with various events such as their mission trips and student interviews. This alone states a lot about a school and their program! I highly recommend it!

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2011

Mercy College is a great private college that is inexpensive that really wants their students to succeed. I have attended other schools where teachers only go in to read from the textbook give exams and leave without explanations. At Mercy you learn.

The locations are very convenient. They offer a variety of classes and it is easy to take 2 classes a night if you are going part time.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

Mercy College's Occupational Therapy program is the perfect place for me to earn my graduate degree. It is a weekend program, so I have flexibility to squeeze in work and community activities. I get hands on experience and learn from top notch professors. I love my program and my chosen profession.
