What is the MBA Fast Track Program
Iona College and UIC Barcelona jointly offer the UIC-Iona Fast Track MBA Program, which is a great opportunity for Business Administration and Management (ADE) students to go to New York and obtain an MBA from the Hagan School of Business in only one year.
This is an exclusive program offered to UIC Barcelona students that has multiple advantages:
- Obtaining an MBA in 1 year instead of two which is the normal duration of a standard MBA program.
- A specific coordinator to attend to the needs of the students on the programme.
- A saving of almost 9.000 dollars.
- Obtaining a visa which allows students to work for a further year in the US once they finish their MBA.
