UTSA College of Business Dedicates Ernst & Young Leadership Suites
October 24, 2012

Leadership Suites DedicationThe University of Texas at San Antonio College of Business dedicated the Ernst & Young Leadership Suites in the Business Building during ceremonies October 19.

The Ernst & Young Leadership Suites were established to provide first-class interview and professional development space for business students and employers.

More than $500,000 was raised to support the build out of the suites, student professional development programs and scholarship assistance in support of this endeavor. Ernst & Young was the lead sponsor.

“What began as an idea more than a year ago to carve out much needed professional development space for our students is now a reality,” said Interim Dean Daniel Hollas. “A reality that was made possible due to the generous support of our title sponsor Ernst & Young and all of the benefactors of this project. Our goal in the college is to transform business students into business professionals—and space like this allows us to better achieve that goal.”

The 1,200-square-foot Ernst & Young Leadership Suites, located on the ground floor of the Business Building, feature six multipurpose breakout rooms and a kitchenette that offer round the clock access to much needed professional development space.

Managed by the college’s Center for Student Professional Development, the suites are utilized during the day for on-campus recruitment interviews. During the evening and weekend hours, Executive MBA students convene for academic classes and group study via keypad access--allowing students to work around their schedules. Day or night each suite offers wireless Internet access, and one room includes a digital interactive whiteboard to allow for video conferencing and collaboration.

“We are so pleased to sponsor these Leadership Suites as part of our ongoing support of UTSA,” said Lisa Friel, Ernst & Young’s San Antonio Managing Partner. “This dedicated space will promote collaboration among students and business leaders and gives each group an opportunity to learn from the other.”
