The $55 million renovation and expansion of Management Hall – the largest such project in the building’s history – will fundamentally transform the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management and its ability to deliver world-class education on a personal scale. Consider these facts and figures about the project:
- Encompassing 48,000 square feet, the expansion will grow Management Hall’s footprint by 50%.
- The project allows all faculty, staff, and classrooms to be located under one roof.
- The project is designed to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
- A new fourth floor offers 2 classroom spaces, kitchen, and event space designed to better host the communities around Vanderbilt and Nashville.
- A named space will house the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures and Vanderbilt Center for Entrepreneurship, trans-institutional centers that count students from every Vanderbilt graduate school as members, as well as undergraduates.
- The renovated building will be outward-focused and transparent, greatly enhancing the 21st Avenue corner of campus and better aligning Vanderbilt Business with the University’s vision for how it presents itself to Nashville.
- This is the first donor-led building project in Vanderbilt’s history, conducted in partnership between Vanderbilt and Owen Graduate School of Management, with a notable contribution from the Owen Century Partners.
