Business School of the Future
The Arthur F. and Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies, which opened Jan. 17, is a “big-league” home for the Providence College School of Business in the view of its dean, Dr. Sylvia Maxfield. A distinct facility of learning, teaching, collaboration, and community, the Ryan Center features a two-story atrium, a finance lab, nine classrooms, a 125-seat auditorium, study and collaboration spaces, and a café. In this view of the Palmisano Atrium, the finance lab — with a study/collaboration area on top — is seen at rear. Formerly Dore Hall, the Ryan Center underscores the PCSB’s commitment to “a business education that’s deeply integrated with the liberal arts,” says Maxfield.
