A facility to match

JMU's new College of Business Learning Complex will support the university's highly ranked undergraduate and graduate business programs.

‘We want to level the playing field with what other business schools are building and create a ‘home’ that reflects the caliber of the JMU business education, faculty, students and alumni.’
Mary Gowan, CoB Dean

James Madison University has embarked on a bold campaign to support its new College of Business Learning Complex. The university has raised more than $7 million toward a goal of surpassing $15 million for the learning complex, which will support the university’s highly ranked undergraduate and graduate business programs.
 
Nearly 90 College of Business community members, including CoB Board of Advisors members, donors, faculty, students and university administrators, formally kicked off the campaign at halftime of JMU's Homecoming football game on Oct. 29. 
 
JMU plans to open the new facility in Fall 2020, with renovations of the current Zane Showker Hall to be completed in 2021.
