Located on the site of the former McCormick Hall at 16th Street and Wisconsin, our new facility will anchor the west gateway to the heart of campus.
Where insights meet ethics
Marquette Business shapes great business leaders with an ethical compass and the ability to combine values, ambition and knowledge. Our new home will embrace Marquette’s Catholic, Jesuit foundation while providing the technology infrastructure for students to be change agents for the greater good.
A forum for the future
Business isn’t done in a silo. Our new facility will emphasize innovative, collaborative spaces where students will be immersed in experiential learning and creative solutions. Future accountants will team with aspiring marketers, and next-generation bankers will map balance sheets with up-and-coming developers.
Innovation leadership programs
Marquette Business is rising to meet the demand for innovation leaders. Beyond technology and products, we have designed our strategy, curriculum and philosophy around people. Dedicated innovation space inside the new facility will position us to connect disciplines across colleges, to test prototype solutions, and to convene industry partners on site, helping us prepare innovative graduates ready to leave their manuals at the door.
It will house Marquette’s expanded Excellence in Leadership (E-Lead) program, and serve as an integral part of our innovation ecosystem across campus. Our spaces and technology also will empower companies to send emerging talent to Marquette for intensive development and skill-set training.
Special event space
The new Marquette Business facility will include a special event space to:
- Host workshops, community events, conferences and large-scale discussions around important societal issues and industry challenges.
- Welcome top executives and recruiters to meet the next generation of business leaders, and serve as the place where Marquette talks business.
- Connect local and extended business communities with Marquette faculty, staff, future graduates and peers.
The new facility will also house innovation leadership programs like Marquette’s Excellence in Leadership (E-LEAD) and Bridge to Business. Its proximity to the Opus College of Engineering will help foster creative collisions of thought and perspective that fuel an innovative mindset.
