Columbia University’s new business school buildings on the Manhattanville campus have been recognized with an Award of Excellence in Structural Engineering in the New Buildings category of the Structural Engineers Association of New York. The new Columbia Business School buildings are scheduled to open in January 2022.
SEAoNY’s Structural Engineering Excellence Awards are modeled after the National Council of Structural Engineers Association Awards and recognize the structural engineering ingenuity of companies located in New York City. Projects are judged on the creativity of a complex design, the innovative use of materials and techniques and the durability of the design.
The new Columbia B School buildings will span 492,000 square feet over two buildings, Henry R. Kravis Hall and the East Building, doubling the school’s current square footage on the Morningside campus. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with FXCollaborative as executive architect and AARRIS ATEPA Architects as associate architect, the new buildings will have a combination of circulation routes, multifunctional spaces, lounges, dining rooms and study rooms to encourage collaboration between disciplines and stimulate innovation.

As the tech industry evolves at an ever-increasing rate, a new type of MBA is in demand. Both employers and students have new expectations regarding academic performance. Young professionals increasingly want to work in the tech industry, while employers want graduates with more analytical skills.

New faculty members, new courses and expanded advisory boards will support these changes.
