Business Students

Though it’s unlikely many of them will still be enrolled when a new home is built for the W. Frank Barton School of Business, four students pursuing their degrees today shared their thoughts about how a new facility will improve the educational experience for tomorrow’s students.

A new business facility indicates that WSU regards the business school as a priority. It shows prospective students that the university wants to provide the best resources, spaces and opportunities to their business students.

Being in a facility that is innovative and up-to-date gives students the passion and drive to, in turn, be more innovative in their ideas and work. One of the biggest differences from Clinton Hall will be the availability of spaces and rooms to study, reflect and collaborate with other people.

The new facility is a promise to keep up with changing times and to focus on innovation alongside education. I really think it will be a game-changer when it comes to how people perceive the Barton School’s effectiveness in educating students. It also demonstrates WSU’s commitment to its students.

I've seen first-hand the value of interpersonal communication and collaboration in the business world. Based on what I have heard about the design and intentions of the new building, I really believe it will provide business students the chance to practice these skills from the moment they start classes.
