Curtis L. Gerrish School of Business Facility Highlights
Looking for the next best idea that will meet customer needs while fueling the economy has become an act of collaboration and cooperation, and the Curtis L. Gerrish School of Business helps Endicott expand its model of collaborative learning, which mirrors the interactive, team-building practices characteristic of today’s corporate settings. High-tech resources, state-of-the-art team building labs, interactive multimedia classrooms, and dedicated internship and career development support services help transform our students into confident practitioners.
The Colin and Erika Angle Center for Entrepreneurship
An exciting culture of entrepreneurship is permeating the Endicott campus, and the Angle Center for Entrepreneurship gives our students a unique experience—one that distinguishes Endicott in the world of entrepreneurial education. Symbolically located between the school of business and the science center, the Angle Center bridges both disciplines while it establishes bridges between academia and the corporate world. By partnering with business and science leaders, entrepreneurs, and experts, the center promotes a wide variety of opportunities by providing mentoring and advice to student and alumni ventures.
The Devereaux Financial Data Center
The pulse of business is real time data, and business decision making moves at the speed of the internet. This specially outfitted classroom affords students the opportunity to work with market data and observe financial issues as they would in the industry. Today, familiarity with the technology of Bloomberg market data feeds is a requirement for employment opportunities, and the Devereaux Data Center gives students this critical access. The room is equipped with two large projection areas, so that multiple data sources can be viewed and compared.
Team Building Rooms
Rather than the lecture style format of traditional business classrooms, this room is designed for collaboration. Students will be immersed in business simulations for their first semester, since we believe that deep learning is a collaborative endeavor, with interactive exercises re-enforcing classroom concepts. An understanding of team dynamics can lead to successful leadership and responsibility. The room is equipped with eight work pods, where student teams can collaborate on a business problem. A central station allows the instructor to coordinate class exercises, to project lectures to main screens and station displays, and to select any team’s output for projection throughout the room.
