Iona College, in New Rochelle, New York, announced this week it will finally acquire Concordia College’s 28-acre campus in Bronxville, New York, where it will set a school of health sciences. Iona will also introduce new student programming in the performing arts, varsity, and club athletics.
The price of the acquisition was not disclosed, nor how many former Concordia employees might be employed by Iona.
Concordia will cease academic instruction before the fall semester of 2021.
Founded in 1940 by the Congregation of Christian Brothers, Iona is a master’s-granting private, Catholic institution with a total enrollment of nearly 4,000 students.
It offers undergraduate degrees in liberal arts, science, and business administration, as well as Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Master of Business Administration degrees and numerous advanced certificate programs. The Princeton Review recognized Iona’s on-campus MBA program as a “Best Business School for 2020.” Iona College also recently launched a new, fully online MBA program.
