Originally a one-year sophomore-level honors business program, MBI has since grown to incorporate an additional two-year program for students applying to Montgomery College (MC) as freshman. MBI isn't a typical business program. It's an experiential learning program for business students to get hands-on experience in the business world and local community.
Macklin Business Institute History
MBI was established in 1999 through a major gift to MC by the late Gordon and Marilyn Macklin. Gordon Macklin, the former president of the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (NASD), helped create the Nasdaq stock exchange in 1971. Marilyn Macklin was an alumna of Montgomery College. The Macklins envisioned the institute as a place where the values of education , business, and civic responsibility would come together in a creative way to facilitate future educational and career successes.
