Sometimes small changes make a big difference, even if it is just three floors. This has certainly turned out to be the case with Michigan State University’s Executive MBA administrative offices. The program has recently moved from the lower level of the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development roughly 200 feet vertically and 30 feet horizontally to a vibrant and efficient space on the main floor.
“By creating a new space for the offices on the main level, we have instantly become a visible MSU presence in the building,” said Cheri DeClercq, assistant dean for MBA programs at the Broad College of Business. “Our new offices provide a professional, inspiring and collaborative space for us to better serve our students. The space is convenient, easily accessible to the EMBA classrooms, and far more welcoming to prospective students.”
In addition to the new administrative offices, the renovation includes the addition of a high-tech student business center where students can leverage wireless collaboration technology along with standard business and student services such as printing, scanning, accessing supplies, and retrieving course materials.
“Feedback from students, faculty and colleagues has been remarkably positive. It just goes to show that sometimes small changes like moving up in the world and enhancing student services can have a huge impact. Since our students’ satisfaction and success is our top priority, we couldn’t be more delighted with the outcome.” DeClercq said.
