Graduate Assistantships

Assistantships for the fall 2015 term are now filled. Applications for this term are no longer being accepted.  Additional assistantships may become available for the spring 2016 term.  You may email your application to and we will keep it on file if positions become available. 

The graduate programs of the Girard School of Business offer a limited number of graduate assistantships which link graduate study with earning and work experience.

Graduate Assistants in either the Master of Science in Management or Master of Science in Accounting complete degree part time, taking two courses for four semesters, and pursuing a business internship during the summer.  During the fall and spring semesters, they work part time as a staff member of the Girard School of Business, gaining invaluable experience working with faculty members and undergraduate students as an integral part of their graduate education.  In addition to earning an hourly-rate salary, Graduate Assistant receive scholarships up to half-tuition.

The program helps to enhance academic study as well as professional development.  The Graduate Assistantship for Merrimack’s Master of Science in Management is ideal for non-business students seeking additional work experience.
