Director of Operations, Data & Recruitment

Mike Twerago

Mike is a two-time Sacred Heart graduate, graduating with his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting in 2012 and his MBA in 2014. During his time as an MBA, Mike worked as a full-time Graduate Assistant in the Student Life Office, where he developed a passion for working with students. After completing his MBA, Mike worked as an Accountant for a small cybersecurity company in Milford, CT and as a Treasury Coordinator for a global commodities merchant in Stamford, CT. He soon realized within both positions that something was missing, and it was his passion for working with students that brought him back to Sacred Heart in February 2015 within the Career Development department. Mike serves as a Career Coach for the College of Business student population, as well as serving as a Director of Data, Operations and Recruitment for the department.
