Oklahoma State University ushered in a new era for its school of business with the opening of the new state-of-the-art Business Building in 2018. From dynamic classrooms, team rooms and student business incubators to areas dedicated to hosting professional business partners, the new building is meant to continuously engage, attract and retain the best student and faculty minds.

The new 147,450-square-foot facility is possible thanks to the generosity of nearly 800 donors. More than $36 million in private donations made the longtime dream of a new Business Building into reality. New building projects throughout the country are typically funded with a relatively small number of very large gifts, usually beginning with a lead gift that is large enough to give naming rights for the new building to that donor. But the broad support from a large number of supporters made the Business Building possible. Gifts as low as $1 and from donors as young as 21 brought the new building into reality.

Thanks to these donors the new landmark building for the Spears School of Business is going to provide students more opportunities to think big, learn by doing and show the world that Oklahoma State takes the academics of business seriously.
