HCHC and Suffolk University Business School Announce New Partnership
Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School have signed a partnership agreement whereby Hellenic graduates who have majored or minored in Business Management and meet Suffolk’s admission standards can qualify for any of six accelerated master’s degree programs at Sawyer. Those accelerated programs lead to the following degrees: Master in Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Accounting (MSA), Master of Science in Finance (MSF), Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA), Master of Science in Marketing (MSM), and Master of Management Studies (MSM).
Through this partnership, Hellenic students may be able to apply up to 15 credits from their Hellenic undergraduate degrees toward these accelerated master’s degrees. This could mean earning a master’s degree in half the time it would usually take, thus saving each student a semester or potentially a year of tuition. Additionally, the partnership allows Hellenic students to acquire the foundational business and Orthodox leadership skills taught by our scholar-practitioners before moving into topnotch master’s programs to fine-tune specific skills such as accounting, finance, business analytics, marketing, and more.
Sawyer Business School, in the heart of downtown Boston, was founded in 1937–the same year as Holy Cross. With its globally focused curriculum and international faculty, Sawyer offers our business-oriented students the ideal opportunity to expand their academic and professional horizons. As HCHC’s President, Rev. Fr. Christopher Metropulos, observes, “Our agreement with Suffolk is the latest step in our ongoing efforts to create strategic partnerships with larger institutions that can provide the broader range of programs, degrees, and professional pathways that our students richly deserve.”
