In support of the Iona College mission, the School of Business is committed to continuous improvement in serving the needs of its stakeholders through teaching excellence, scholarship, and service.
For students, the goal is to provide a high quality undergraduate and graduate business education for traditional and nontraditional students that is pursued in a challenging academic environment and is grounded in business practice and theory. The School produces graduates and future leaders, who understand business and its social responsibilities, work productively in a high-technology and culturally diverse society, demonstrate awareness of the global character of business, and subscribe to high ethical standards.
For the faculty, the School fosters a collegial environment that promotes and nurtures teaching excellence. Our faculty are dedicated teachers with depth and breadth of education and background, open to change and innovation, committed to continuing professional education, and responsive to student needs. Teaching and intellectual contributions are viewed as complementary activities. Faculty pursue instructional and applied contributions as well as basic scholarship.
For alumni, the School strives to build an on-going partnership with its graduates through periodic publications, opportunities for alumni feedback to the School, offering life-long learning opportunities, and special alumni events.
For the community, in particular the corporations in the New York metropolitan area, not-for-profit organizations, and local government, the goal is to use the resources of the School to fulfill our commitment to community service--through student internships in local organizations, service learning, locally and regionally oriented faculty research, and lectures and special activities which are open to the public.
