HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Administrators, faculty, students and supporters of William Carey University gathered Friday morning to break ground for the school's new School of Business building.

It will be a two-story structure and will include two lecture halls, five classrooms, a computer lab and faculty offices.

The cost of the project is more than $2.9 million.

Officials say the building was needed because of growth of the business program. 

"It has grown vastly in recent years," said Dr. Tommy King, president of William Carey University. "We're adding an international business degree this fall. So, it will move out into this building and then that will create a domino effect. The communication and theater department will move into the old Thomas Business Building. That will free up the first floor of Tatum Court for additional administrative offices and other needs there," King said.

It's scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.
