About The Borough of Manhattan Community College

Borough of Manhattan Community College was founded in 1963 and opened in 1964 as a small, primarily business-oriented community college offering programs aimed at the business community. Originally located in two floors of a commercial building in midtown Manhattan, the college focused on preparing students for business careers and on providing a liberal arts education to students who wished to transfer to four-year colleges. The college also created on-site training and management development courses for mid-level employees. BMCC continuously modified its in-house and on-site programs. During the next two decades, the mission of the college changed in response to the advent of open admissions in the City University of New York in 1970, and later in response to the emergence of new technologies and changes in business and industry. By 1974, enrollment had increased to over 6,000 day and evening students.
