The Westchester County Business Journal writes an article featuring Pace and its 100 million dollar master plan to restructure and consolidate the Pleasantville Campus.

Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer William McGrath explains that ‘”We see the long-term benefit of having a beautiful, competitive campus in the center of the county, but it’s very aligned with the county executive’s vision of Westchester County being the intellectual capital of the state… It is something that is good for economic development.”’

The new campus should be ready in the Fall 2015 if everything goes as planned.

Pace is actively searching for beneficial employer partnerships to recruit future Pace students.

“The Lubin School of Business is running a program incentive for employees who apply to Pace University by July 1. There’s an attractive perk: they receive one free, three-credit course worth $2,500. “It’s not easy, because in White Plains, the volume market size seems to have shrunk,” Baugher said. “A lot of (companies) are smaller businesses and they ask, ‘What’s in it for me? If they are trained, will the person leave me?’ But it can mean that someone in-house can do something that a consultant would have done.”’

Finally, Pace has recently launched “iPace”, and online degree completion program. Prospective students who apply by July 1 will only have to pay $500 per credit.
