“As a Dominican student, I completed two internships at Macy’s. After graduating, I am continuing my career with Macy’s in the executive development program.” –Alyssa Corrado ’10, Apparel Merchandising Major
Some apparel students decide to continue at Dominican to earn an MBA degree, a helpful asset in most any fashion career.
Qualified students can begin work in Dominican’s Brennan School of Business while they are still undergraduates. Students take the required MBA courses as electives. During their senior year, students will take one graduate course each semester. This reduces the time required to complete the MBA degree.
