The New Building
The new $84 million, 240,000-square-foot College of Business Administration building is the largest academic building project in the recent history at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Located at 14th and Vine Streets, the new building will become the east bookend for Memorial Mall looking west toward Memorial Stadium. Architects for the project are Robert A.M. Stern Architects of New York and Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture of Omaha. The new building will serve as a central gathering place for the CBA community and will be a welcoming place for the university and larger business community. It offers endless possibilities for the Big Ten College of Business, including interactive learning in state-of-the-art classrooms, one-stop student support services, cutting-edge technology and space to host many events in the future. Groundbreaking will commence in March, and the new facility will be completed in 2017.

Impact of The New Building

Dr. Laurie Miller red effect
Innovative Teaching and engagement
"The cutting-edge technology will allow us to better implement and experiment with innovative teaching practices and engage with our students. The flexible classrooms will also facilitate engagement. The break-out rooms can be used for small group work, case study rooms, trading rooms and more. The new building will also allow all faculty to teach in this one building rather than various buildings across campus."
–Dr. Laurie Miller, assistant professor of practice in economics

My Education
"I'm excited to be in the first class to take advantage of the new building. It is centrally located on campus and will have so many resources to accommodate students. The new classrooms are set up so we can listen to professors and collaborate with other classmates. There will be a trading room, a new sales center and space. I cannot wait to explore the building and learn more about it."

Research
"The arrangements of faculty and Ph.D. student offices are conducive to greater Ph.D. student/faculty interaction and it produces greater research activity for the school as a whole. A new facility shows the commitment to become a research active community. It will not only attract faculty necessary to accomplish that goal but is likely to attract better Ph.D. student applicants who are vital to increasing the research presence of the school. It's a small world and good impressions travel quickly."
–Dr. Tom Omer, professor and Delmar Lienemann Sr. Chair of Accounting
