This past fall, Columbia administrators and faculty members joined construction workers at a “topping out” ceremony to mark the completion of the steel superstructure of the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation. Together with the Henry R. Kravis Building, which topped out over the summer, this will become Columbia Business School’s new home in Manhattanville. The school’s two new buildings will open in 2022, providing the school nearly twice as much space as it currently occupies in Uris Hall and several satellite locations. “We are creating a new future,” said Dean Costis Maglaras. “We can now pursue our ambitions. We can provide a better education.”
