Among these new programs are a doctorate in business administration (DBA) in finance, a master’s degree in digital marketing and a master’s degree in human resource management.

“Sacred Heart offers a wide range of graduate programs that enable students to launch a new career or advance in their current field,” Longcore said. “I’m looking forward to interacting with both prospective and current students to help them make the right decision for their long-term goals.”

Longcore has extensive experience in higher education administration, primarily in the areas of enrollment management, admissions and student recruitment.

We have a tremendous opportunity for growth and expansion in Stamford,” he said.
