Interim Dean, William G. Rohrer College of Business

As Rowan University captures headlines for its explosive growth and transformation, the Rohrer College of Business (RCB) continues to exceed all expectations.

We are putting the final touches on the designs of the new RCB building, which will transform the landscape of our campus. This ultramodern building is designed to allow industry to benefit from our students’ passion and enthusiasm and our faculty’s expertise. Industry leaders will have a forum in which to share and discover best practices in business. Student groups will use our hatchery to transform ideas into viable businesses. The RCB building also will feature a conference center, professional development center, state-of-the-art undergraduate and graduate classrooms, and many additional amenities.

As we enhance our physical space and increase our impact on the business community, we are also developing new strategic alliances. For example, the RCB Incubator has established a partnership with the Office of Technology Commercialization to aggressively seek out and cultivate high-potential patentable innovations. In another alliance, the university forged a strategic partnership with Lockheed Martin Corp., which will bring two new buildings to the South Jersey Technology Park. This alliance will foster student projects, faculty engagements and student professional development.

Our vibrant, constantly evolving atmosphere enables students to develop increasingly impressive portfolios of conceptual accomplishments, professional engagements and job-readiness skills. I am thrilled and honored to witness our students as they realize their professional dreams, and I am eager to see the dreams that will emerge in the coming semesters.
