Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Jason T. Konesco, 37, has been named president of Harrison College, which was formerly known as the Indiana Business College.

Konesco replaces his father, Ken Konesco, who has led the Indianapolis-based for-profit school since 1986. Ken Konesco is now CEO of the college’s parent company, Education Management Corp.

Jason Konesco came to Harrison College in 1999 after working for Brightpoint, Inc. in Indianapolis and Philip Morris U.S.A. in Minneapolis. Most recently, he was Harrison’s senior vice president of operations, overseeing its 13 campuses, online division and Chef’s Academy.

Jason Konesco’s first paid job at Harrison was as a high school presenter, a moonlighting gig he took while earning his MBA in finance from Butler University. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Notre Dame.

Harrison College has seen a surge of new students during the recession. Enrollment grew 25 percent in the past year and now stands at 5,700.

The school offers 30 degree programs and is looking to add more bachelors and master’s degrees. It also is growing its online division.

“We’ve grown by meeting the needs of several audiences: students looking to enter the work force, change careers or get a promotion,” Jason Konesco said in a prepared statement.
