In summer 2012, Fordham will open the doors to a brand-new home for the Gabelli School of Business — a state-of-the-art center for business education from which our talented students will launch their careers. Picture it:
A trading room filled with Bloomberg terminals and double-panel computer screens.
A media room where wall-sized projections display student-designed ads.
A kiosk where students run a Fair Trade coffee business.
A lounge where students can hang out and talk business — or not.
A career center, a center for international business and an honors room.
This is the kind of building where tomorrow’s business leaders get their start. The exterior is traditional Gothic stone — Fordham went to great lengths to preserve this, to honor our history — but every square inch of the inside is new. Construction experts removed the entire former interior of the building, leaving only the stone shell, and created a technologically advanced, environmentally friendly building from scratch.
