Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for NJCU School of Business In Jersey City’s Waterfront Financial District

New Jersey City University (NJCU) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in December for the new location of its School of Business which is situated in a 70,000-square-foot space directly on the Jersey City waterfront, adjacent to the Exchange Place PATH station at 160 Harborside Plaza 2. The event was attended by more than 300 dignitaries, university officials, faculty, students, and alumni. 
 
Guided tours of the School of Business were given by students.  Speakers included: Dr. Sue Henderson, President, NJCU; Rafael Perez, Esq., Chair, Board of Trustees, NJCU Provost and Senior Vice President Dan Julius; U.S. Representative (Ret.) (14th District) Frank J. Guarini, Hudson County Freeholder Bill O’Dea, Jersey City Council President Rolando Lavarro, and NJCU School of Business Interim Dean Bernard McSherry.
 
The architectural plan for the School of Business features cutting-edge technology, a simulated trading floor with 30 Bloomberg terminals, a data science center, classrooms, faculty offices, and a conference space with stunning views of lower Manhattan.  The location centralizes NJCU’s growing undergraduate and graduate business programs and provides students with convenient access to corporate employers both in Jersey City and New York City.
