On a Fast Track to Move the World
After receiving a BBA in Marketing from Iona’s Hagan School of Business, Alana Irwin decided to enter the FastTrack MBA Program. Alana decided to pursue an MBA in Human Resources Management and in just five years she had the knowledge and skills to fast track her career. With a job in her field, right out of graduate school, Alana is now a recruiter for the financial giant JP Morgan in New York City.
Iona’s Fast Track MBA program allowed Alana to build on the foundation she learned during her time as an undergraduate student, while simultaneously shaving 10 months off the length of a traditional MBA program. In addition to her MBA core courses, she focused her studies on Human Resources Management, which helped to prepare her for the challenges she would encounter in the corporate world.
Alana’s success in her field is due in part to the hands-on experience she gained while studying at Iona. Iona has an outstanding faculty who educate their students, as well as help to open doors for them. Iona is an AACSB International accredited business school. This is a distinction award given to just 5 percent of business schools worldwide. Since the Hagan School of Business is nationally recognized for excellence, this helped Alana gain the edge she needed in a competitive job market.
