Spanning 176,000GSF, the space incorporates innovative technology for an enhanced user experience, enabling collaboration, productivity, and creativity in exciting ways.
The building includes an advanced business simulation laboratory, a professional sales laboratory with audio/video recording and playback functionality, behavior laboratories for research, programming, and experimentation, and a real-time analysis and investment laboratory with multiple workstations to mimic real trading desks. These specialized spaces provide hands-on, real-world experience in a controlled environment that compels students to challenge themselves.
Some areas within the building replicate authentic business environments, such as Wall Street trading desks, providing students with a realistic experience. The technology designs implemented in these spaces seamlessly integrate audiovisual and security systems, ensuring a comprehensive and immersive learning environment.
These carefully crafted designs facilitate learning in diverse spaces that are intuitive and accessible, mirroring the dynamic nature of real-world business environments. By immersing students in progressive, comprehensive, and hands-on educational experiences, Clemson University’s College of Business empowers students to push the boundaries of learning and further prepares them for success in the rapidly evolving business landscape.
