Manhattanville Campus

The way that business is conducted is rapidly changing. To continue to train future generations of leaders to succeed in an increasingly team-oriented, tech-savvy, global environment, Columbia Business School must have facilities that reflect the reality of the marketplace.

Columbia Business School’s new facilities — designed by renowned New York architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXFowle — will reflect the fast-paced, high-tech, and highly social character of business in the 21st century. Business culture has evolved away from the hierarchies that dominated organizations in past. Instead, organizations are moving toward more horizontal, collaborative models, and in order to maintain our position at the forefront of graduate business education, Columbia must inhabit a physical space that facilitates and encourages:

  • the development of social intelligence–based skills, such as leadership, management, teamwork, and negotiation,
  • the creation and strengthening of social networks among students, faculty members, alumni, and business practitioners, and
  • the integration of cutting-edge technology into teaching and research.

The construction of state-of-the-art facilities offers Columbia Business School a unique opportunity to create spaces that foster a deep sense of community — where students, faculty members, alumni, and our partners can gather and exchange ideas. Our new home will unlock the School’s full potential, inspiring an ongoing transformation of our programs and the growth of our intellectual capital.
