Jon Harrington

Full-Time MBA, Class of 2013

Brand Manager
Beech-Nut Nutrition Company

After earning his bachelor’s degree in business administration from SUNY Buffalo, Jonathan worked at Home Properties in Rochester as a marketing assistant and later became a marketing coordinator, managing cross functional teams in developing new marketing programs.

“I always knew Simon was a great business school,” he says. “While I was at Home Properties, I decided to explore the possibility of earning my MBA here.” Jon came for an on-campus visit and was “blown away by the whole experience.” The biggest standout for him was the personalized environment and the economics focus of the school.

As a Simon Fellow, Jon has taken on leadership roles as a member of the Simon Marketing Association helping to organize corporate tours in Rochester and New York City, Simon Toastmasters, and Simon Ambassadors.

The Career Management Center helped Jon land an internship at Unilever this summer focusing on brand management. Jon lives in Irondequoit with his wife, Cait.

“The main thing that attracted me to Simon was the close-knit community. Dean Mark Zupan called me as soon as I put down my deposit, and alumni have been incredibly willing to help provide insight and advice. Those contacts directly led to my internship, and I am very grateful for that.”
