Sign one of the final beams in the new Mike Ilitch School of Business

Don’t miss your chance to put your name on a piece of Wayne State history! Stop by the Prentis Building today to sign one of the final steel beams to be hoisted into place in the new home of the Mike Ilitch School of Business.

The beam is being housed in the Ilitch School’s Office of Undergraduate Student Services (Prentis Building, Room 200) through noon next Wednesday, May 24.

It will be available for signing today (Friday, May 19) until 4:30 p.m., Monday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. until noon.

Our new building will open in spring 2018 and was made possible by a $40 million lead investment from Mike and Marian Ilitch. The gift is the largest in WSU history and ranks as one of the top ten gifts ever to name a public business school in the United States.

The new facility will be WSU’s first entirely new construction project outside of the university’s Midtown campus. Our location in the District Detroit brings students closer to the heart of Detroit’s business community and enhances access to internship and career opportunities.
