BS in Chemistry / Fast Track MBA

The Fast Track program is especially designed for non-business students who want a business background prior to entering graduate or professional school, and for professional school graduates who would like an MBA before starting a residency.

You can jump start your BS/MBA with the Hagan School of Business at Iona. Chemistry/Biochemistry majors can apply up to 24 undergraduate credits in business school classes (finance, marketing, etc.) toward an Iona MBA degree, enabling students to earn both degrees in as little as five years.

For details about this program, please consult with Dr. Lee (Chemistry department chair) and Dr. Cante (professor of Strategic, Quality and Operations Management).
