Mike Ilitch School of Business breaks ground this week
We have another sign of work moving right along in the District Detroit. Wayne State University is hosting a groundbreaking for the Mike Ilitch School of Business, located at the corner of Woodward and Temple, this Wednesday. The school will be located right by the new arena/events center and is slated to open in 2018 (the arena will open for the 2017 hockey season). The $40 million donation by the Ilitch family is the largest in the school’s history. $35 million will go to the building, while $5 million will go to an endowment fund.
