• NJCU School of Business is Moving to Jersey City

    New Jersey City University (NJCU) School of Business is relocating to the heart of Jersey City’s financial hub in September 2015.  The New Jersey school is moving to a custom-designed, 68,348-square-foot facility at 2 Harborside Plaza.  Located across from the Exchange Place PATH Station, the new building is situated directly on the Jersey City waterfront. 


    In an official statement the New Jersey school said, “The location will centralize NJCU's growing undergraduate and graduate business programs and provide students with convenient access to corporate employers both in Jersey City and New York City.”


    When announcing plans for the new facility, Dr. Bernard McSherry, interim dean of the NJCU School of Business commented, "This is a defining moment for the School of Business.  Our presence in the midst of New Jersey's financial capital and our proximity to Wall Street positions NJCU to attract top faculty and to give our students a competitive edge for global experiential learning."


    The architectural and design plans for the NJCU School of Business include a simulated trading floor, classrooms, offices for faculty and a conference space with a view of lower Manhattan. 

    NJCU President Sue Henderson said, "The NJCU School of Business will be part of the business community in an exciting, world-class environment where students will study with top scholars and practitioners and learn to become future business leaders."  She continued by saying, "The benefits of this new development are beyond measure for our students, faculty, and corporate partners.  Business is our academic area with the largest number of majors.  The new Harborside facility will ensure that we can physically meet enrollment demand."


    NJCU signed a 20-year lease on the Harborside Plaza facility, which shows a true commitment to the ever growing financial and tech industries in Jersey City.  Welcome to the neighborhood NJCU School of Business!
