New Jersey City University (NJCU) will relocate its School of Business to a custom-designed facility in the heart of New Jersey’s financial hub this coming September.
The NJCU School of Business will be situated in a 68,348-square-foot space at Harborside Plaza 2 directly on the Jersey City waterfront, adjacent to the Exchange Place PATH station. The location will centralize NJCU’s growing undergraduate and graduate business programs and provide students with convenient access to corporate employers both in Jersey City and New York City.
The architectural plans for the School of Business will feature cutting-edge technology, a simulated trading floor, classrooms, faculty offices, and a conference space with stunning views of lower Manhattan.
NJCU holds a 20-year lease on the Harborside Plaza facility, which is owned by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation.
In announcing plans for the new facility, NJCU President Sue Henderson said, “The NJCU School of Business will be part of the business community in an exciting, world-class environment where students will study with top scholars and practitioners and learn to become future business leaders.” She continued, “The benefits of this new development are beyond measure for our students, faculty, and corporate partners. Business is our academic area with the largest number of majors. The new Harborside facility will ensure that we can physically meet enrollment demand.”
Dr. Bernard McSherry, interim dean of the NJCU School of Business commented, “This is a defining moment for the School of Business. Our presence in the midst of New Jersey’s financial capital and our proximity to Wall Street positions NJCU to attract top faculty and to give our students a competitive edge for global experiential learning.”
The NJCU School of Business, established in 2013, is comprised of four independent departments: Finance, Accounting, Management, and Marketing, in addition to the Peter G. Mangin Real Estate Institute, and the NJCU Small Business Development Center.Related Articles:
