Hampton University James T. George School of Business Partners with Barron’s in Education
HAMPTON, Va. (August 12, 2020) – The Hampton University James T. George School of Business is excited to announce the partnership with Barron’s in Education, which will offer students, faculty, and staff digital subscriptions to Barron’s online content and other experiential learning opportunities. Morgan Stanley has graciously provided sponsorship for this program. Barron’s is America’s premier financial magazine, which provides in-depth analysis and commentary on the markets, updated every business day online.
“It is an honor to partner with Barron’s in Education to provide our students, faculty, and staff additional real-world insight into investment topics and global market trends,” said Hampton University President, Dr. William R. Harvey. “We are also grateful for Morgan Stanley’s continued partnership and generosity to help provide a pipeline for minority students who are interested in the financial market industry.”
In addition to the digital subscription, Hampton students will gain resources that connect them with a real-world environment that is updated weekly. This will also allow faculty to discuss current trends with students and will give them an inside look at the financial market.
“We are excited to partner with industry leaders such as Barron’s and Morgan Stanley. We welcome the opportunity to expose our students to the broad practical aspects of business,” said Dr. Ziette Hayes, Dean of the James T. George School of Business. “The holistic approach of combining experiential and theoretical learning, while also supporting faculty in the learning process, is what makes this a unique opportunity.”
