Amherst, MA – On Friday, April 12, UMass Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management will officially inaugurate The Business Innovation Hub at the heart of the university’s campus, adding 70,000sf of hyper-collaborative study and social space to the top rated business school.
The $62 million project features classrooms designed to accommodate distance learning and connections with business leaders, labs and student-facing spaces—including an expanded career center, advising spaces, learning commons—as well as the addition of faculty offices to the school’s extensive facilities.
The new annex accompanies the renovation of select spaces in both the original 1964 building and the 2002 addition named for Harold Alfond. Together, the new and renovated facilities will combine to create a single unified facility. This flexible space, designed to accommodate future growth, will also house entrepreneur-in-residence programs and experiential learning spaces for students.
The new expansion and partial renovation of the Isenberg School of Management nearly doubles the school’s current size to address Isenberg’s monumental growth in the last decade, while introducing new facilities for faculty, staff and 5,000 students in undergraduate, master’s, and PhD programs.
