Business school’s ‘living room’ concept inspired by Pixar headquarters
October 2nd, 2013
Wake Forest’s Farrell Hall, home to the School of Business, was recognized in the “B-School Life” blog for its living room concept. “I’d rather be in the living room than in my office,” says Derrick Boone, associate dean of the MA in Management program. “Students stop by and ask questions not only about class, but about careers, their interests, and my interests.” Construction of the $55 million building was funded in part with a $10 million pledge from Mike and Mary Farrell of Summit, N.J., parents of Michael Edward Farrell, a 2010 Wake Forest graduate.
