MSU Dedicates New Business Education Center

Michigan State University has dedicated a new business education center. 



MSU alum and billionaire real estate developer Edward Minskoff donated $30 million toward the pavilion that now bears his name. 


His gift represents the largest single contribution ever given to Michigan State University. 


Minskoff says he hopes the pavilion will attract the best business students from around the world.


“It’s an advancement in education in an area that I feel is critically important,” Minskoff says.  “It’s a way of helping to accelerate the prestige of the business school at Michigan State University to make it one of the leaders in the country.”


The 100,000 square foot facility features an entrepreneurship lab, career center and a large open-air glass atrium.
