Richmond, Virginia includes the third highest concentration of U.S. Fortune 1000 headquarters and is ranked as one of the nation’s 10 best places for business and careers.
 Snead Hall
Snead Hall opened for use to the School of Business in January 2008. Along with traditional classroom and faculty offices, the 145,000 square-foot, four-story facility includes a capital markets center and trading room, central atrium with a student commons and cafe, Business and Engineering Career Center, Center for Corporate Education, auditorium, collaborative learning rooms, tiered case study classrooms and team-building breakout rooms.
 Future Expansion
- School of Business expansion/Executive Conference Center - The current masterplan calls for the Executive Center to be built on the block East of the current Business building. The 130,000 square feet (12,000 m2) building is estimated to cost 65 million.
The development of the School of Business dates from 1946-47 when the veterans began to enroll in such large numbers. Prior to that time there had been a few courses in secretarial study, and in 1941 a full-time teacher had been added to the faculty. Post-war years brought greater demands. In 1949, for example, of the 582 veterans enrolled, about half applied for admission to the School of Business.
