Outstanding Research and Learning Environment
The business school is housed in a modern complex surrounding a tropical courtyard with a food kiosk and picturesque outdoor seating along a waterway. The School of Business Administration encompasses the George W. Jenkins Building and the William and Elsa Stubblefield Classroom Building in one complex. The Stubblefield Building contains classrooms outfitted with the latest audio/video equipment, faculty offices, administrative areas, and conference rooms. The Sanford L. Ziff Graduate Career Services Center and the Alma Jennings Foundation/Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz Study Center comprise the lower floor of the Jenkins Building. The spacious Study Center includes several separate soundproof study rooms that easily accommodate study groups.
The 48,000-square-foot addition to the business school complex, completed in the year 2000, includes graduate classrooms, the 300-seat Storer Auditorium, the James W. McLamore Executive Education Center, the MBA student lounge, and a state-of-the-art computer lab. The 300-seat auditorium accommodates business guest lecturers and student and faculty presentations, providing opportunities to enhance the learning experience. Classrooms, dedicated exclusively to graduate programs, incorporate the most recently developed technology, including full computer network access at every student's seat, and projectors linked to a lectern with built in computer and Internet access. A five-story, 12,000 square foot, Kosar/Epstein Faculty Office Wing is the latest addition to the School of Business complex. The top three floors contain 36 faculty offices and meeting rooms above a two story open breezeway for students along the adjacent waterway. The Faculty Office Wing was made possible through a lead naming gift from 1994 Alumnus of Distinction, Bernie Kosar (BBA '85) and his business associate David L. Epstein, founder of Precision Response Corporation.
