The grand opening of the George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics at USC Upstate was held in May 2010.
Affectionately known as “The George,” the 60,000-square-foot, $30 million George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics at USC Upstate is as impressive as the vitae of its namesake, who is regarded as an entrepreneurial legend.
This state-of-the-art facility features a stock trading lab where students will make real time stock trading calls based on momentum, news and overall current-day stock market action. When not in use, it doubles as a much-needed computer lab. Smart classrooms and a tiered classroom that can accommodate 80 students, means faculty members will be using the latest technology to teach. The three galleries in “The George” features rotating exhibits from The Johnson Collection, comprised of more than 600 pieces ranging from the 1700s to the present.
