Global Business and Analytics Complex
Driven by data
Using data to make better decisions in a complex world is one of the greatest challenges and opportunities of our century. Virginia Tech’s Global Business and Analytics Complex will cement the university as a world leader in developing methods for data analysis and interpretation, and in using data to address problems faced by industry and society.
A transformative project
The complex will include four buildings on the university’s main campus in Blacksburg: two living-learning residential communities and two academic buildings. Together, they will:
- Bring students and faculty who share a passion for an analytic approach to problems together, in collaborative work environments, for transdisciplinary research and hands-on learning.
- Enhance the talent pipeline for the business community in the era of big data and the new technology economy, increasing undergraduate enrollment by 2,000 students in computer engineering, software engineering, and related disciplines such as business information technology.
- Leverage strengths of the Pamplin College of Business, College of Engineering, College of Science, and other colleges and academic areas that are engaged in the Data Analytics and Decision Sciences Destination Area.
- Improve our ability to secure research funding, allowing us to make a greater impact.
