Equipping the workforce of tomorrow

Harold Alfond Hall positions the College of Business at Husson University as the center of innovation and a driver of regional economic growth. Hands-on learning is at the heart of the Husson business education; students use physical and digital simulations to boost entrepreneurial thinking and solve real-world problems.

Regional businesses are welcomed into the new building to see its state-of-the-art programs in action, and a collaboration hub and technology-rich meeting rooms provide space for ideas exploration and mentorship. The resulting academic/business connections create new opportunities for synergistic partnerships, give employers access to emerging talent, and boost student enrollment.

Maine has the potential to experience new vibrancy thanks to the economic seeds planted here at the Harold Alfond Hall.

The design responds to Maine’s demand for skilled workers by providing inviting collaboration spaces where employers can connect with students.
Filled with light and comfortable furnishings, the building encourages students, faculty, and professionals to meet and collaborate.

Immersive technologies at your fingertips

Among the building’s most innovative experiential learning environments is the iEX Center, an interactive learning lab where students solve real-world problems using advanced extended reality technologies. Other spaces, such as the Ronan Center for Financial Technology, feature interactive touch screens, stock tickers, and other high-tech pieces of equipment so students can readily access and research investment performance with the touch of a finger.
