Situated in a globally recognized hotbed of innovation, the mission of the Rady School of Management is to develop innovators into successful science and technology business leaders. The school is uniquely poised to offer access to both leading-edge research and a fully engaged San Diego business community.

The building was designed with environmental sustainability in mind, using natural ventilation and energy-efficient lighting. The office chairs are made of recycled content, locally sourced and low-emitting materials and they are 98 percent recyclable. The Rady School also is in the process of installing solar panels on the roof to provide an added energy source. Phase One, constructed in 2007, its design reflects the in­novation that the school encourages.

The 100,000-square-foot Otterson Hall is designed to accommodate state-of-the-art networking and videoconferencing/distance learning facilities in a world-class facility. Providing a comfortable learning environment with a corporate edge, the building bridges the gap between the academic and corporate worlds. It encourages interactivity between students and faculty and promotes collaboration between disciplines. Phase 2 doubles the size of phase 1, repeating similar functions while adding new features such as a signature auditorium, research center, and a behavioral lab.
