Pace University: A World of Opportunity
Founded in 1906, Pace University takes pride in its reputation for nurturing aspiring professionals in fields ranging from business to technology to health professions to arts and sciences. Offering more than 100 undergraduate and 60 graduate degree programs, Pace University strives to provide students with the best resources for their individual pathways to success. Students may choose to study at the New York City campus, located in the heart of the Manhattan financial district, or the Westchester County campus.
The Pace Difference
“Our tagline at Pace is work towards greatness. We provide students with a solid foundation, which includes strong academic excellence and professional preparation, robust financial aid, merit scholarships, and choice of campus location,” explained Director of International Admissions, Andre Cordon.
Pace features The Pace Path, a personal, academic and professional development plan that begins in the student’s freshman year and is designed to make one market-ready to launch a successful career after graduation. The Path includes strong academics, dedicated mentoring and coaching, real-world professional experiences (including internships, research projects, study abroad), and robust Career Services focused on placing students in their first professional position.
“We have a strong success rate of students getting their degree at Pace – obtaining their OPT (Optional Practical Training), then many going for their H1B Visa, and staying in the US for an additional three to five years working for a company here,” Mr. Cordon commented.
International Student Life at Pace
International students will be pleased with the variety of programs available at Pace, which include Hotel and Tourism Management, Finance, Communications, Computer Science, Pre-Med, LLM, Nursing, Accounting, Psychology, Education and more. Pace hosts students from 116 different countries, and a strong support staff ensures a smooth transition from the start. Whether enquiring about admissions procedures and ESL options or looking to get involved in one of the many student clubs, Pace provides a warm welcome.
Like the international microcosm that is New York City, Pace University is a melting pot of languages, cultures, and traditions. Global education is emphasized at Pace and American students are encouraged to study abroad.
Our Future for Your Future
The university recently completed a USD $100 million renovation project for the Westchester County Pleasantville campus.
“We are building new residence halls and new buildings on campus. We’ve added new programs like Digital Film Making, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry. We are also going to establish a Public Relations degree,” Mr. Cordon concluded.
Always prioritizing student experiences and opportunities, Pace University actively works on meeting the needs of its evolving student body.
