Discovering the world by degrees


After Sunday, Alison O'Shea of Fairfield will hold two degrees from Fairfield University - the bachelor's degree she received in 1993 and the brand new MBA she is receiving. In between she picked up a degree from the Culinary Institute at Hyde Park, N.Y., and this fall she will be off to law school to work on a JD in employment law.

Following her graduation from the Culinary Institute where she specialized in pastry, she worked in San Francisco and Florida before returning to Connecticut as head pastry chef at the Inn at National Hall in Westport.

Alison has been working in the Development Department of Fairfield University while specializing in Human Resources in her MBA studies. Earlier this year she was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, the highest recognition a student of business anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master's degree program at a school accredited by AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
