David Haney ’15MBA
Managing Director, Joe Bosack & Co.
What did Iona College’s SEM Business program and/or faculty mean to you?
I was not the typical graduate student, having already had a long career in marketing, advertising and sports marketing. The SEM Business program complemented my career experience with key business disciplines.
What was the most beneficial aspect of the program that potential students should know about?
Potential students should know that the SEMB program and its faculty provide a robust combination of textbook business practices, real-world applications, and a focus on career development.
How did the program help your career?
My Iona MBA is an important credential to share with my clients and prospective clients. In the brand identity consulting world, this is an advantage over competitive agencies that are only design-focused.
What was the most memorable experience in being part of the program?
The group projects and presentations were always different and interesting. The planning, writing, deadlines, and group dynamics mirror real-world experiences that improve one’s ability to perform in a business environment.
