Entering into the Beatty Center, home of the School of Business, is like walking into a modern corporate atrium. It feels like a place of work for business students who welcome the challenge.

Each "smart" classroom in the Beatty Center is equipped with technology stations with access to applied learning tools and databases to prepare ready-to-work graduates. Classes are small, and professors know their students on a first-name basis. As the school continues investing in its facilities and capabilities, students will apply the latest technology in new ways to be better thinkers and problem solvers.
