A $32 million, 58,000-square-foot LEED Gold-certified entrepreneurship building opens this fall at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) to try and break the mold of traditional learning. The Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, part of the Bloch School of Management, will serve the school’s 1,800 graduate and undergradute students through “active learning classrooms,” including a simulated trading floor, design lab, behavioral science research space and 200-seat auditorium. “The new Bloch Hall is more like a design school than a business school,” said Bloch School dean Teng-Kee Tan. Recent recognition of the program includes a top 20 ranking in the Princeton Review. — Source: PRWeb
