Macklin Business Institute students and alumni

Rockville Campus, First Floor of Campus Center Building

The Macklin Business Institute (MBI) is a selective and experiential business program for business students to get hands-on experience in the business world and local community.

The MBI Cafe is student-run coffee shop located on the Rockville Campus. MBI students—using lessons from class—run the café including both front line and managerial operations. The Café, which opened in 2003, will celebrate its grand re-opening in a new and bigger space across from the Rockville Campus Cafeteria. The Café is a We Proudly Serve Starbucks operation.

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.


Montgomery College is a public, open admissions community college with campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park/Silver Spring, plus workforce development/continuing education centers and off-site programs throughout Montgomery County, Md. The College serves nearly 60,000 students a year, through both credit and noncredit programs, in more than 130 areas of study.
