The News Magazine of HCU

The Houston Baptist University Archie W. Dunham College of Business is pleased to announce the creation of the HBU Robert Griswold Finance & Analytics Lab. It will serve as a space in which finance students can practice concepts like reading a stock market ticker, conducting data analytics and more. Construction is set to begin in the summer of 2018, and the lab will be located on the first floor of the Hinton Center. The lab is being provided through the generous donation of Dr. Robert Griswold, MBA ’79, also a former faculty member of HBU, along with additional gifts by Susan and Richard Redding, ’82, Chris Wallis, William Mearse and Prosperity Bank.

Dr. Griswold graduated from HBU with an MBA degree in 1979 while working with Shell Oil Company. He later established his own consulting practice and completed a PhD in Finance in 2001. Dr. Griswold returned to HBU and served as an adjunct professor of Business for several years.

“The HBU Archie W. Dunham College of Business has prepared thousands of graduates to be innovative leaders with strong Christian character,” Dr. Michael Weeks, dean of the Archie W. Dunham College of Business, said. “The Robert Griswold Finance & Analytics Lab brings us on par with some of the larger business schools in our area. The room will be designed for teamwork; it’ll be an environment in which students can apply what they learn in the classroom.”
