Building for the 21st Century

A world-class city needs a world-class business school. By establishing Bloch Heritage Hall in 1909, Kansas City community leaders created a heritage of investment in higher education and a dedication to innovation. The building's recent renovations follow in that tradition, preserving the history and charm of the building, while bringing it into the 21st century to create a better experience for students, faculty and staff.

Renovations include a vibrant student services hub that provides a space to for community-building and collaborative learning. The new configuration also makes available tools to empower students to launch successful careers and businesses after graduation.
