KSU Breaks Ground On New Business School Building

Kansas State University broke ground Friday on a new $50 million building to house its College of Business Administration.

Earlier this year, the architecture team of Ebert/Mayo/PGAV was chosen through a national competition to build the new project.

The 140,000-square-foot building will include classrooms, a 250-seat lecture hall, computer labs, a financial research lab and an executive conference room.

"The reality is we can’t do what we want to do in terms of academic programs that our students need today in Calvin Hall," said Dean of the College of Business Administration Ali Malekzadeh. "So the new building will allow for our students, for example, to build businesses in the entrepreneurship center and to get engaged in big data and data analytics."

K-State expects to have the project completed in 2016.
