The new home of Marquette University’s business and innovation leadership programs, the Dr. E.J. and Margaret O’Brien Hall opened its doors to students last week.
“We told prospective students and their families they would have seven or eight semesters in the most state-of-the-art space probably in the country for a business school,” said Tim Hanley, Keyes Dean of the College of Business Administration. “Last year alone, our enrollment in the college went up 40%, so we’re excited about the future.”
The new building features up to 17 classroom spaces across four levels. In addition, there are 12 meeting rooms throughout the building reserved for student and faculty use, including a soundproof recording studio and one modeled after a modern-day corporate board room.
