Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business set to open in April 2018

The Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business, which has seen steady enrollment gains in recent years due to a streamlined admissions process, a strong economy, and support from the automotive industry, is on pace to open in April 2018, says Dean Robert Forsythe.

The four-story, 120,000-square-foot school, to be located at the southwest corner of Woodward Avenue and Temple Street, will be just north of Little Caesars Arena, the new $635-million enclosed stadium for the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons that is scheduled to open in September. The foundation walls for the school are now being poured.
