MCBS seeks to establish a place of prominence for teaching and research, experiential and lifelong learning, and community outreach and engagement. The college is committed to developing graduates who are creative and who will assume roles of responsible positions and service to their society.

MCBS has defined 9 Graduate Attributes that will provide a robust and desirable framework for engaging with the world and with ongoing learning of new knowledge.  These are qualities and skills that all MCBS students should seek to develop and build upon as outcome of the learning they engage with on their program of study at the College and beyond.
