The Stanford Graduate School of Business formally broke ground on its new business school campus September 10th.
The 360,000-square-foot campus will comprise of eight buildings around three quadrangles and will be named the Knight Management Center.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, the Nike Inc. founder and chairman Philip H. Knight, MBA '62, for whom the new campus is named, pressed his feet -- clad, of course, in a pair of black Nike Air Max 360s -- into concrete.
Knight was an early lead donor with a gift of $105 million -- believed to be the largest gift ever to a business school. The campus is expected to cost at least $350 million by completion in 2011.

The campus will include flexible classroom space and breakout study rooms to accommodate the greater number of smaller classes and programs in the School's new MBA curriculum, launched in 2007. The design aims to invite and engage more students in cross-disciplinary experiences involving Stanford University's six other schools of engineering, law, education, earth sciences, medicine, and humanities and sciences. The campus will include a 600-seat lecture hall, dining facilities, an underground parking structure for 900 vehicles, and dedicated space for career management and executive education programs. It will also offer classrooms for collaborative hands-on learning or virtual communication linking students from other schools at Stanford or around the globe, as well as faculty and staff offices.
