School of Business and Technology
Welcome to the School of Business and Technology!
We live in a challenging time. But challenging times create opportunities for those with determination and commitment. Here at the School of Business and Technology (SBT), we are focusing on the future, the “What’s Next Economy”, and have created undergraduate and graduate programs to give students the tools and skills they need to seize the opportunities ahead for them.
Why Marymount? We are the only school in the Greater Washington region that combines technology, business, entrepreneurial, and leadership education under one roof. We are a one-stop shop and don’t have the friction and silos that you will find with interdisciplinary programs at most other universities. Whether it's the broad range of undergraduate minors and degrees or the diverse graduate qualifications of our graduate programs (both degree and certificate), we provide pathways for students to combine technology understanding, business insights, entrepreneurial attitudes and leadership skills to become valued leaders and employees in the future What’s Next Economy.
Our approach is based on three principles: modularity, efficiency, and resiliency. Modularity means that our various programs work together so that our graduates can tailor their courses of study to achieve degree qualifications that uniquely position them in the future job markets. Efficiency means we offer many accelerated programs that don’t reduce credit hours or academic rigor but can be completed in less time. Resiliency means that our programs combine intimate synchronous and asynchronous face-to-face and online learning, combining the best of in-class and online experiences that you can tailor to your work life balance during this stressful time.
Some highlights of our unique programs are:
- Undergraduate degrees in accounting, business, economics, and information technology, all designed for necessary jobs in the What’s Next Economy.
- Undergraduate minors available to students in SBT and the other schools of Marymount, that allow students to combine skill development in areas of employer demand with other academic pursuits.
- Accelerated second undergraduate degrees in Cybersecurity and Cloud Computing for graduates with a preexisting post-baccalaureate degree in any subject
- Graduate programs that prepare students with the credentials needed for success in the What’s Next Economy including
- Two doctoral programs in Cybersecurity.
- Six Master’s programs.
- Eleven graduate certificates in essential technology and business disciplines that can be obtained on their own in as little as 6 months, or counted towards one of our masters programs to create unique specializations in a Master’s Degree, such as an MBA with a Certificate in Cybersecurity or an MA in Human Resource Management with a Certificate in Data Science. You can also combine 3 of the certificates to receive an MS in Emerging Technology, putting you ahead of the What’s Next Economy with its new emphasis on technology in business and government.
- An ability to take the additional steps of coordinating courses of study to obtain unique dual Master’s qualifications among our master’s program, for example an MBA/MA in Human Resource Management or an MBA/MS in Information Technology.
