Research Facilities

The Sauder building houses a dedicated graduate school facility for the Robert H. Lee Graduate School, innovative and interactive learning spaces, a trading lab, and communication technologies that can deliver international business leaders into classrooms at the click of a mouse.

Built to inspire a new generation of business leaders, a recent $70-million expansion of the modern, high-tech Sauder building added 55,000 square feet to the original 216,000 square foot structure. The redevelopment included a host of features and facilities that help establish Sauder as global hub for business education.
