Timothy Bailey

Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Finance '20

Master's in Business Administration '21

 

Tim Bailey graduated in May of 2020 with dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Management and Finance. As with many colleges and universities, Bailey’s senior year was unfortunately cut short due the COVID-19 pandemic. As a senior, Bailey was the Captain of the Men’s Lacrosse team, a member of Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda, a member of the Risk Management Association, and an active member of the Alvernia community. Uncertain about his future and the hiring freeze associated with COVID-19 nationwide, Bailey decided to return to Alvernia and pursue his Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). “I felt very unsatisfied upon graduation in May of 2020, projects were cut short, athletic goals were unaccomplished, and service missions were unfulfilled.”

 

With the circumstances at hand, it was a no-brainer to return to Alvernia. “The staff and faculty provide you with the tools you need to succeed; it would be a shame not to seize an opportunity to work with them again and develop value as a professional.” An opening to work as the Grad Assistant in the Marketing Department offered new avenues for growth. Excited and prepared for tasks and challenges, he started his new position this fall. “I am so excited to see what accomplishments await with another year of professional development while sharpening my skills in the marketing office at Alvernia. It was an opportunity I could not pass up.”
