The Robert H. and Katharine B. Garff Building adds 150,000 square feet to the campus of the David Eccles School of Business. The building will host the school’s MBA, Professional MBA, Executive MBA and MBA Online programs as well as Executive Education. It also will house the Marriner S. Eccles Institute for Economics and Quantitative Analysis, Goff Strategic Leadership Center as well as Business Career Services.

Final touches are still being added to the interior of the building, but classrooms are open and career coaches are already meeting with students in the career services suite. There will be a Business Career Services Open House on Aug. 28 and 29 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. that are students are invited to attend.

The building was completed in only 18 months, and came to fruition because of the generosity of several donors, led by a $12 million donation by the children of Robert and Katharine Garff.

“Our parents have been our personal heroes since we were children. One of the closest things to my parents’ heart is education, and they taught us to value it above all else,” Matthew Garff said at the groundbreaking. “As a true Ute family, we are thrilled to have this opportunity to give back to the school that taught us so much, and to simultaneously honor our parents for their tireless efforts and continuous donations to education in Utah. We believe that this building will live up to our parents’ name by providing top-tier instruction and programs.”
