The highest degrees offered are master's degrees. The college follows founder Audrey Cohen's Purpose-Centered ducation philosophy. In contrast to colleges and universities that organize the school year according to semesters, MCNY refers to each term as a "purpose". Each term's purpose, or unifying theme, drives the coursework for the term, which includes a Constructive Action (CA). CAs are unique clinical seminars in which students complete projects that combine classroom study with research-fieldwork projects that integrate lessons learned in all of the term's courses with hands-on experience.

In 2012, the Associate and bachelor's degree in Business Administration and all MBA programs at Metropolitan College of New York were accredited by The Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP).

The MBA programs at MCNY have an international field study experience in their curricula and the experience is an inherent part of these curricula. This action-oriented experience is tailored to ensure that students have the opportunity to work collaboratively in a pan-cultural environment in which they are exposed to new cultures and given the opportunity to explore them. Students enrolled in the MBA programs (Media Management, Financial Services or General Management) will participate in the trip based on their credits completed and academic progress.

The programs’ goal is to immerse students in the global business environment and students participation are required as this is necessary to develop and apply the skills required to work effectively in the global economy. As part of the required international practicum course, students will be afforded the opportunity to work in a consultative capacity with an operating enterprise to address one or more existing business challenges.
