Ben Anthony

Advanced Certificate in Immigration Law

"I am now practicing immigration law in immigration court. There was no greater feeling than when I walked into court for the first time. If I had never gone back to court after that day, I would have accomplished what I set out to do."

Larry J. Strong

MS in Business Management & Leadership, Class of 2013

The MOST important thing I learned at CUNY SPS is knowledge of self. I learned that I could be a good student. I learned that I could digest and process subjects like statistics, accounting and organizational behavior. Most importantly, I learned that I could do what I set out to do!

Giselle Bonet

Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Class of 2013

Setting goals is easy but knowing how to reach them isn’t always clear. I learned how to turn my passions into career-oriented practices. CUNY SPS gave me the tools to formalize the skills needed in the workforce and taught me how to apply those skills in the real world.
