Michael Zarrilli, Retired Police Officer

“As a former police officer, who attended Mercy University while proudly serving my community, I know the challenges that officers face while embarking on a path toward a higher education. As a graduate of the Organizational Management ’06 and M.B.A. ‘14 programs, I can say from firsthand experience that the faculty, staff and academic programs assisted me at every step of the way, in order to achieve my life and career goals. I am delighted that Mercy has implemented this differential tuition program with New York’s Finest. We are looking forward to assisting the rank and file of the NYPD with furthering their education and careers.”
