Introducing the Revamped Iona MBA Program


NEW ROCHELLE, NY - The Iona College School of Business is proud to announce it will launch a dramatically redesigned MBA program this fall. The Iona MBA boasts a new, more flexible, faster, and cost-effective format that requires only 39 credits to attain the degree. The program is open to students with any type of bachelor's degree.

The Iona MBA program consists of 24 core and 15 elective credits. Additionally, the program does not require a GMAT for applicants, and offers rolling admission, so students can enter the program at any of five terms during the year – June, July, August, November or February. Iona's MBA is designed to give students the flexibility to set their own pace and create a customized course-set. Full-time students take 9-12 credits per term and typically complete the degree in 12 months. Part-time students typically take six credits per term and can complete the degree in 20 months.

“The new format lends students greater flexibility in how they structure their MBA," said William B. Lamb, Ph.D., dean of Iona's School of Business. "By offering an avenue to students in which they can expedite their educational journeys while keeping costs affordable, Iona lets students develop combinations of courses that best suit their needs. For students who have never studied business before, the new program is quicker to complete and less costly—yet still provides deep coverage of the key business disciplines."

Application requirements can be found the Iona MBA website.

Students in the Iona MBA program can also specialize their degree by adding an advanced certificate within their MBA courses. The School of Business offers 14 advanced certificates in topics that include: Financial Management, Health Care Management, Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, Marketing, Accounting, and Information Systems, among others.
