The Business School Building Boom

The Business School Building Boom | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"There has been a rise in what commentators call the "MBA building boom" - a raft of leading schools are spending millions developing their campuses and opening new buildings. The life of the b-school student is becoming one of luxury.

 
Portland State University's School of Business Administration is planning a $60 million project that will triple its available space on campus. Yale School of Management unveiled a new $243 million campus earlier this month, while Harvard Business School just spent $100 million on a new building for its executive education programs."
Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

We like this:


""In every way, our physical campus and the way Tuck’s faculty and staff interact with students fosters a sense of community and collaboration. It is the place where lifelong relationships are created - perhaps the most lasting legacy of the Tuck experience," she added.

 
With the rise in online and distance learning, it could be a risk developing campuses to such an extent - even if the majority of funding doesn't come from university coffers.
 
Sally Blout, Kellog's Dean, told The Economist earlier this month: "Our industry is about to transform itself. And you have to decide whether you are in or out of face-to-face education.""

Canadian Campus Visionary Ron Thom | Trent University, the Whole Campus as Art

Canadian Campus Visionary Ron Thom | Trent University, the Whole Campus as Art | SCUP Links | Scoop.it
Ontario — When Ron Thom was commissioned to design a university in Peterborough 50 years ago, his unique artistic approach set him apart from his Canadian peers – and hasn’t been topped since. Monocle takes a tour around campus.
Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

It’s an artful blend. 'As you walk through Trent’s campus, you feel like you’ve crept through a hole in the universe where some benevolent dictator has mandated that all architecture should be rendered as art' This is perhaps no coincidence. [nc]

Yale School of Management's Edward P. Evans Hall

Yale School of Management's Edward P. Evans Hall | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"Edward P. Evans Hall, the new home of the Yale School of Management, which opened in January. At 249,743 square feet and a reported $189 million, the building assembles the school’s formerly scattered facilities, which serve some 300 students, around a grassy little courtyard and under one deeply overhanging roof. Monumentally shiny and not especially subtle, the building is closer in geography and spirit to the nearby Eero Saarinen and Philip Johnson buildings on Yale’s peripheral science and athletic campuses than it is to the dense Rudolph and Louis Kahn masterpieces at the university’s heart."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Excellent set of images.
