MONTCLAIR, NJ - Classes at Montclair State University began last week, signifying record-breaking milestones for the 107-year-old university. University officials welcomed the school's largest freshmen class and largest enrollment in the university's history and now they are set to open a state-of-the-art New School of Business facility this week.
On Thursday, Sept. 10 MSU will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the New School of Business facility. The event will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. and a new name for the business school will be revealed to the public for the first time.
Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and President Susan A. Cole will come together with other MSU officials to reveal the naming of the School of Business, which will be disclosed at the event in honor of two dedicated New Jersey business people who are active MSU supporters who officials say share the conviction that education has the power to transform lives.
The $66 million, six-story, 143,000-square-foot building was made possible with partial funding by state bonds from the “Building Our Future” Bond Act approved by New Jersey voters in 2012. The new facility is designed to support the School of Business’ more than 2,800 undergraduate and graduate business students.
The building features a Financial trading floor, 3D printers, beautiful collaborative space for the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship, networking and start-up incubator spaces.
