New Building for Executive Education – Harvard’s Tata Hall

Harvard Business School, one of ACI’s most valuable Executive Education partners, dedicated its recently completed state-of-the-art new home on December 9th. Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Tata Hall is a 7-story, 163,000-square-foot building containing approximately 180 bedrooms, two new 99-seat amphitheater-style classrooms, and informal gathering areas for Executive Education participants to meet and socialize. The $100 million building’s architect is William Rawn Associates, Inc., and Tata Hall was constructed by Massachusetts’ BOND Brothers, Inc.

The Hall was named after Harvard alumnus Ratan N. Tata, who served as chairman of the Tata Group in India from 1991 until his retirement in 2012. Tata Group, the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, and the Tata Education and Development Trust donated a reported $50 million toward construction of this innovative and sustainable building. Tata attended the School’s Advanced Management Program in 1975 and is said to be enthusiastic about the new building.

It is expected that Tata Hall will be awarded LEED certification, which is a ratings system for environmentally green buildings. Construction began in December 2011 and took approximately two years. Tata Hall completes the Executive Education quad at the Harvard Business School, located in the northeast corner of the business school campus.
