La Salle University has a new home for its location in Montgomery County. Beginning January 2008, La Salle moved into the new state-of-the-art Metroplex Corporate Center in Plymouth Meeting.
La Salle had been offering graduate-level courses in business administration and psychology on the campus of Gwynedd-Mercy College in Montgomery County. The move to the Metroplex Corporate Center provides La Salle with a centrally-located site, convenient for graduate and continuing studies students from Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties.
At the new Metroplex location, La Salle continues to offer its MBA and Clinical-Counseling Psychology programs. Programs offered as of fall 2008 include graduate certificate programs in Fraud and Forensic Accounting, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution and new non-credit programs.
According to Paul Brazina, La Salle’s Dean of the School of Business, the Metroplex Corporate Center is an ideal location to expand La Salle’s MBA program. “The counties surrounding the Metroplex continue to attract successful businesses with talented employees. As an AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accredited business school, La Salle offers a wide variety of programs to enhance the local workforce and build value for productive careers,” said Brazina.
Like the MBA program, La Salle’s Clinical-Counseling Psychology Program is structured to accommodate adult learners. Depending on their area of concentration, most clinical-counseling psychology graduate students are able to complete their coursework entirely at the Montgomery County site.
At Metroplex Corporate Center’s state-of-the-art facilities, La Salle houses classrooms, a computer lab, an all-purpose room, and administrative offices.
The Metroplex Corporate Center is located at the intersection of Germantown Pike and Chemical Road at the junction of the Mid-County Interchange (I-476, the Blue Route, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and its Northeast Extension).
