With a brand new space in the new Tepper building, Carnegie Mellon University Executive Education has an added opportunity to offer more of its leadership, innovation, and analytics training programs to business leaders.
The Takamatsu Executive Education Center, supported by a generous donation from Takehisa Takamatsu (MSIA 1989), former President of Lone Star Japan Acquisitions, is located on the fifth floor of the Tepper School of Business building.
“These spaces have been specifically designed so that Executive Education can continue to provide our world-class education programs with premium event space and state-of-the-art technology,” said Maria Taylor, executive director of executive education.
The new location includes two classrooms dedicated for Executive Education activities, including the Carnegie Bosch Institute Classroom, funded by a gift from the Bosch Group. The classrooms are outfitted with custom technology, planned with the assistance of Carnegie Mellon’s Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation that supports instruction and curriculum design, similar to classrooms throughout the business school building.
“Technology-enhanced classrooms give us the opportunity to explore new models of teaching as our understanding of how learning works, grows and changes into the future,” Taylor said.
The fifth floor space also includes a large commons area for receptions and other events, as well as five dedicated breakout rooms — two more than was available in Posner Hall, where Executive Education occupied a portion of the third floor completed in 2000 following a gift from Robert Bosch GmbH in support of executive education programs.
