In April, the School held a “topping off” ceremony for Klarman Hall, a new convening center being built on the southeastern corner of the HBS campus. The ceremony of raising the highest steel beam traditionally marks the halfway point of a building’s construction. Slated to open in fall 2018, Klarman Hall will be home to lectures, conferences, performances, as well as many other purposes, and will accommodate up to 1,000 guests.
The building is made possible by a generous gift from Beth and Seth Klarman (MBA 1982), who took part in the ceremony.
