School of Business and Technology
The School of Business and Technology educates and prepares students to become ethical business professionals who think critically and communicate effectively in a diverse, dynamic, and global environment.
Welcome to the School of Business and Technology!
Because technology drives the world economy and determines how business is done, Marymount has taken the bold step of combining its technology and business programs into a single school, the School of Business and Technology.
This approach is unique in the Greater Washington area. Our students do not need to design their own degrees to obtain a 21st century education, nor do they need to endure the administrative friction of coordinating a degree across different schools. Our students can focus on what matters: academics, internships and student life.
At SBT, we offer many courses and degrees that fuse business and technology and allow our graduates to stand out when they join the workforce. We provide exciting degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level that prepare our students to work with technology in valuable ways.
It is not just our structure that make us unique. We offer a one-of-a-kind educational experience as a Catholic University committed to service. We don’t talk about diversity; we live in a diverse community every day and value our students’ willingness to work hard and develop open minds. From its inception, Marymount has been dedicated to education in the truest sense: giving students the comprehensive tools to succeed and be leaders.
SBT is located in Ballston, Virginia, less than five miles from the heart of Washington D.C. We are at the center of one of the most dynamic economies in the United States. It’s the home of more fast-growing businesses and socially-focused organizations than any other region in the US. We have the highest concentration of technologists in the country, including major operations for leading companies such as Amazon and Capital One. The innovative federal agencies that created the internet, GPS and robotics work within walking distance of our building. Our proximity provides many exciting opportunities for internships, both during the school year and over the summer, as well as jobs for our graduates. In fact, student internships are an integral part of the SBT experience, and undergraduates are required to have at least one internship prior to graduation. SBT has a structured program, which helps our students find the right internship and practical experience.
Marymount University is designated as a National Center for Academic Excellence for Cyber Defense by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. Our business programs are accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), and our Healthcare Management program is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).
Our goal in the School of Business and Technology is to educate men and women who will go on to make significant contributions to society while having rewarding careers that enrich their lives and those of the people around them. We encourage you to learn more about our school from our website or stopping by for a visit. Involvement in a community of committed professionals and engaged students is one of the most enriching experiences anyone can have. Come join us and develop the skills to make a difference.
