UHart Business School Unveils $5 Million Expansion
The University of Hartford (UHart), a Council member, recently debuted the Barney School of Business’s new $5 million learning and collaboration space. The Connecticut university was established in 1957 and currently enrolls over 6,700 students.
UHart’s expansion was completed over the past year and includes a 10,000 square foot addition and an additional 13,000 square feet of renovated space in the university’s Auerbach Hall. The addition was designed by Glastonbury-based SLAM Collaborative and built by Shawmut Design & Construction of Boston. Business students will now have more opportunities for active learning as the new facility’s trading room and analytics lab simulates the real stock market. The facility, complete with 12 Bloomberg terminals, will enable students to learn how to analyze large financial disasters.
“This addition will allow us to be even more successful than we currently are in preparing our students to work in the fast-moving and fiercely competitive world of business,” said Amy Zheng Dean of the Barney School of Business.
The Council congratulates University of Hartford on this expansion and applauds their efforts to provide their students with hands-on learning experiences.
