Long Island Students Embody Dynamic New Approach to Business Education at Mercy College
DOBBS FERRY, N.Y., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two ambitious Long Island students are at the forefront of a groundbreaking program at Mercy College's School of Business. Amanda Droll from Bellport and Billy Johansen of Glen Head are already setting the stage for future career success while still in college through this innovative program now transforming the traditional business school model.
"This novel approach to business education--which is being pioneered at Mercy College--emphasizes active learning and faculty members who are top-ranked professionals and whose contacts can open doors for students in global companies," explains Dr. Kimberly Cline, president of Mercy College.
The key to the new approach is the synthesis of top-tier instruction with a broad spectrum of opportunities for learning outside the classroom through mentoring, skills development, networking, and internships. The School of Business restructuring is a core component of Mercy College's ongoing commitment to spearheading innovative educational strategies.
The Mercy College School of Business is led by Dean Ed Weis, who personifies the program's new direction. He was a managing director in investment banking at Merrill Lynch before turning his focus to business education.
