Stonehill to Launch Business School with $25M MassDevelopment Bond

NEC member Stonehill College recently announced that it plans to open a business school using a $25 million bond from fellow Council member MassDevelopment, the state’s economic development and finance agency. The new building will be called the Leo J. Meehan School of Business, named after W.B. Mason CEO and Stonehill alum Leo Meehan. The launch of the business school is part of a broader reorganization at the college, and the restructuring will consist of two main academic programs: The School of Arts & Sciences and the Meehan School of Business.

Stonehill President John Denning said, “This is a monumental boost for the college. It will elevate our standing regionally and nationally, allowing us to better compete for the best and brightest students and faculty.”

The New England Council congratulates Stonehill College on their plans to open the Leo J. Meehan School of Business and looks forward to seeing the college’s successful transformation. Read more on the Stonehill College Website and the Boston Business Journal.
