UNL College of Business

First Class Business Classes

APMA partnered with Robert A.M. Stern Architects on the design of the new College of Business at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Located at the heart of campus, the building is a focal point with a ceremonial entrance on axis with Memorial Stadium to the west. This relationship establishes a greenspace and pedestrian area for football gatherings and public events. Formally and conceptually the building achieves a balance between existing, traditional campus architecture and forward-looking, contemporary design in a way that aligns with the University’s priorities of tradition and innovation.

The four-story glass atrium extends the length of the building and floods the space with light. Sculptural stairs lead up to the limestone wings where offices are located. Classrooms and auditoriums incorporate cutting edge technology with flexible options that can adapt to evolving technologies and pedagogical approaches.

“This new space is going to provide us a greater capacity to have ongoing collaboration between students and businesses. It is essential because it is creating a modern business environment that simply was not possible in our old building.”

Associate Dean for Business and Chief Operating Officer

Welcome Callahan

June 19, 2020

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.
