The Glorious New Kellogg Global Hub, in Pictures

Image for The Glorious New Kellogg Global Hub, in Pictures

A week ago today, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University welcomed students into its glittering new Global Hub, which replaces the aging Jacobs Center as the business school’s main facilities. Culminating a $250-million project that involved 1 million work hours put in by more than 1,500 people, the new 415,000-square-foot building is an architectural triumph designed to bring to life Kellogg’s central values of collaboration and boldness.

“In my mind, this building tells the world unequivocally that we are a contender—we are not and have never been a one-generation wonder,” said Kellogg Dean Sally Blount to an audience gathered for a March 29th community celebration of the new building. “Our university, alumni, faculty, staff and students have all stepped up to ensure Kellogg’s relevance and prominence for the 21st century,” she continued. “This building tells the world unequivocally that we are brave, we are visionary and we embrace our roots in the great city of Chicago. It reminds us all of what made Kellogg great: the ability to attract, shape and catalyze an unparalleled global community of grounded, courageous and collaborative leaders.”

We invite you to follow us on a photographic tour of Kellogg’s spectacular new digs.
