’s DeVos Graduate School of Management was bursting at the seams. With only one classroom at their East Lansing
location, the growing program needed more room. Last week, the university celebrated the grand opening of their new Abbot Rd. location, which features more than double the space and some high tech amenities.
“[The move] allowed us to take our technology and our collaborative space into a new direction,” says Program Center Manager, Adult Degree Programs and DeVos Graduate School, Julie Hanna.
The new location includes two large classrooms with mobile tables for collaborative group work. Collaboration areas for students are also available outside of the classrooms. The space also includes a kitchen and vending area and ITV conference room. Northwood worked with the Gillespie Group on building out the space.
Northwood University’s new MBA center opened for students on March 12, and classes have been held there ever since. The grand opening was scheduled for after classes let out for the semester.
“They loved it,” says Hanna.
