Business Administration Building

Continue Walking Tour | Academic Tour

Until 1972, the various departments of the College of Business Administration were scattered all over the University. In order to centralize this department and, thus, provide for greater efficiency and effectiveness, the administration approved plans for construction of a Business Administration building. Since its completion in 1972, the building has proved to be a focal point for various academic departments. In addition, the building has served as a center for career contacts, study, and advising for the majority of business-related majors on campus.
