(BALTIMORE - November 13, 2015) - The long-awaited, $72-million Morgan Business Center, home of the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management, officially opened today. President David Wilson, along with members of the Morgan State University Board of Regents, local and state leaders, students and the business community cut the ribbon to declare the facility open for the business of educating students about today’s global marketplace.

The $72-million state-of-the-art facility features a Center for Innovation, computer labs, classrooms, a real-time Capital Markets stock trading center, seminar rooms and a 299-person-capacity auditorium that includes an 80-person lecture hall. The building also houses a demonstration kitchen and a block of 10 functional hotel rooms for the business school’s hospitality management program.

Located on a nine-acre site at the east end of the Northwood Shopping Center, the nearly 140,000-square-foot complex is the University’s first expansion across Hillen Road and one of several planned projects for the West Campus. Construction of a 660-foot pedestrian bridge across Hillen Road, which will connect the business school to the main campus, will be completed soon. Plans also call for the eventual addition of a parking garage.
