Michigan State University has started construction on a $60m Business Pavilion, which is scheduled to become operational in 2019.
The university believes that the three-storey pavilion will transform the learning experience of students while providing the Eli Broad College of Business a competitive edge compared to other business schools.
Featuring flexible classrooms, the new facility will incorporate latest technology, a glass-walled atrium and an expanded career centre to serve students, recruiters and corporate partners.
Spanning over a 100,000 sq ft area, the facility is located near the Business College Building and Eppley Center.
Michigan State University president Lou Anna Simon said: “The pavilion is more than just a building. It will become a notable part of our university’s history.
“This will be where Spartans innovate, where our faculty will raise the bar in delivering cutting-edge curricula and where our culture of entrepreneurial spirit will continue to grow in the years to come.”
