This week the Institute celebrates the opening of its new addition on the fourth floor of the Venture 2 Building. The 6,500 square foot expansion includes offices, student workspaces, computing facilities, and a modern 84-seat classroom to accommodate the recent growth in enrollment in the Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) degree program. Commenting on the occasion, the Institute’s director, Dr. Michael Rappa, said “The expansion represents the next step in the fulfillment of our vision for analytics. I am very grateful for the generosity of our benefactor, whose strong embrace of this vision helped make the expansion possible, and to the Institute’s dedicated staff, who labored long hours to ensure its timely and successful completion.” The new expansion increases the total space occupied by the Institute to 14,500 square feet. It is located directly beneath the existing facility on Centennial Campus.
