Welcome to the Hagan School of Business

Thank you for visiting the website of the Hagan School of Business. The School’s commitment to Catholic Higher Education in the Christian Brothers’ Tradition coupled with our AACSB - International accreditation assures that the student is at the core of everything we do. Our rich heritage affirms our commitment to academic excellence, intellectual inquiry, and the values of justice, peace and service to others. We seek to develop confident, competent and complete professionals who will be involved in both local and global communities in service to others.

The academic and intellectual development of our students is the focus of Hagan’s 38 full-time faculty who are organized into five departments: Accounting; Finance, Business Economics and Legal Studies; Information Systems; Management and Business Administration; and Marketing and International Business. Traditional age students choose one of seven different undergraduate majors leading to a Bachelors of Business Administration. Internships are available for students so they can relate real-world experiences to what they have learned in the classroom. Students may take advantage of our study abroad program where they can learn in and about cultures other than ours. The practicing professionals who are invited to campus by a number of very active student organizations are regularly available to talk with students on issues of importance.

The trimester-based, part-time, Master of Business Administration program is designed for students who are working, but seek to continue their education. MBA students may choose from one of five concentrations. In addition, students can earn certificates in International Business or Electronic Commerce as part of their program. Post-masters certificates are also an option for those who have already obtained a masters degree. Classes are offered at our main campus in New Rochelle, NY or at our Rockland Graduate Center in Pearl River, NY. Many classes are offered through distance learning, as well.

The faculty of the Hagan School continuously strive to be excellent teachers. Teaching excellence mandates that faculty have an active scholarly agenda. Faculty scholarship often focuses on student learning or on furthering knowledge in the faculty member’s discipline.

Alumni from the Hagan School include many leading senior managers. Graduates include individuals who hold executive positions for both New York stock markets, and for such well-known firms as Verizon, American Express, Sony, MasterCard International and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals to name a few.

Iona College and the Hagan School of Business offer a wonderful opportunity for you to further your education in business administration. We look forward to welcoming you to the Iona community and to serving you.
