The University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business has officially opened its newly-renovated space in Chicago. The office will house graduate and executive business programs in addition to the Executive MBA program. The Michigan Avenue campus has offered the Chicago-based Executive MBA since 2002. It will now also house Mendoza's master of science in finance and master of science in business analytics.
The 8,200 square-foot space includes a high-tech classroom, hospitality area and office and “hoteling” spaces for visiting faculty and staff.
The school says the renovation also strengthens its connection to the main Notre Dame campus in South Bend. In addition to data and video exchange capabilities, the interior design includes blue and gold color schemes and Notre Dame branding.
Mendoza Associate Dean of Graduate Programs Jeffrey Bergstrand says the updated space will help the school meet increasing demand from working professionals in Chicago.
