Amir Pirnia holds an MBA with a concentration in marketing, management, and strategy from the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management, which opened its new Global Hub in the spring of 2017.

The Kellogg School’s new Global Hub is a 415,000-square-foot building on Lake Michigan that features two atriums. The first, Collaboration Plaza, was designed as a meeting place for the Kellogg community. The second atrium, Faculty Summit, is located above Collaboration Plaza and serves as a gathering place for faculty from various disciplines.

Other features of the Global Hub include White Auditorium, a two-story meeting space that overlooks Lake Michigan and seats up to 300 people. The Global Hub also includes flexible classrooms that can be combined through removable walls to accommodate larger groups.

The classrooms are outfitted with advanced technology, and some even have telepresence technology, allowing the school to welcome remote guest lecturers. To learn more about Kellogg’s Global Hub, visit
