Robins School Momentum

According to the Richmond TimesDispatch, Dr. Jorge Haddock, dean of the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond, is focused on momentum.
Momentum to hold a lofty position among the top 25 undergraduate business schools in the nation, as measured by BusinessWeek magazine.

Momentum to complete a $16.8 million capital campaign -- about $10.5 million has been raised -- so the business school can add a new wing.

Momentum to help new UR President Edward L. Ayers keep his pledge to provide more service to the Richmond community.

The Robins School offers 38 student exchange programs in 29 countries; this summer about a dozen international MBA students from Brazil and Angola attended a five-week session at UR. Newsweek magazine just recognized the University of Richmond as one of the 25 Hottest Schools in America for international studies.

The new wing of the business school, for which fundraising is well underway, will increase the size of the school facilities by a third, including 33,000 square feet for new classrooms, a 225-seat auditorium, the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a Wall Street-style trading room.

Current faculty research grants are outlined in the Summer 2007 newsletter.
