Here is a rundown of in-progress and planned renovations:
Stayer Center
  • Improvements to the combined MBA & Executive Lounge (3rd floor) are to be completed over the Christmas break.
  • Several team rooms and lounge spaces are being added on the first floor.
  • The drink station previously located in Commons B is moving into the Servery. This will eliminate interruptions and noise that often affects guests in Commons B.
  • Once the 305 Lounge and Commons B/Servery work is complete, we plan to eliminate the drink stations at the east and west ends of the second floor, which will then provide additional social space and seating for students.
  • We soon will be seeking bids for the renovation of storage space in the lower level, adding team rooms and additional lounge/social space for students.
  • New outdoor, University-standard, sustainably produced tables and chairs are on order for the patios, along with large umbrellas.
Mendoza Building
  • A Ph.D. suite is being created in the lower level (L014B & L014C).
  • Improvements to the former MBA lounge (149/267) to create a refreshed space for Specialized Masters students will begin once we have fully moved the MBA program to Stayer.
  • In the Potenziani Family Atrium, the stock exchange trading post will be placed in storage until we can find alternate space in the future H2A renovation. Upgrades to the atrium furniture as well as additional seating/tables will be added to provide improved social space for our Specialized Masters students.
  • A new bike rack will be added this spring near Mendoza’s southwest entrance to provide much needed spaces for an increasing number of bikes and scooters

Starting in January 2022, the new format for the University of Notre Dame's Executive MBA-Chicago (EMBA-C) extends the length of its program to two years with monthly residencies Thursday through Saturday.


The Mendoza TA & RA Marketplace is a platform designed to match faculty and staff with Mendoza graduate students who seek opportunities for work as TAs, RAs and/or student employees. This concept originated from faculty and staff who expressed frustration in easily identifying high-quality students in our graduate programs for these positions, especially one-year programs. The hope is that this platform will allow our graduate students to engage with faculty and staff in new, meaningful ways and also make the search and hiring processes much easier for all involved.


At the start of each academic year, as well as throughout the academic year, the Box folders accessible via this link will be populated with résumés of students in the MBA, MSM, MNA, MSA, residential MSBA and residential MSF programs who are interested in TA and RA work. Faculty and staff should browse résumés at their convenience, and, when a good match occurs, proceed with the normal hiring process.


The Mendoza TA & RA Marketplace will be available on the Mendoza Exchange website all academic year. Check the link frequently, as new résumés may be added throughout the year. Of course, folders also will be updated with current résumés at the start of each new academic year.

Associate Dean for Specialized Master's Programs

The term “Objectives and Key Results” (OKRs) refers to a collaborative goal-setting framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes in a measurable way. The aim is to provide clear direction within a department or unit about what goals to focus on and how progress will be measured, as well as to align and connect a department’s goals to the College’s and University’s. For those interested in learning more about OKRs, here are a few resources:
  •  John Doerr’s TED Talk: Why The Secret to Success is Setting the Right Goals. Doerr, an engineer and venture capitalist, provides an overview of the OKR framework and explains how setting the right goals can mean the difference between success and failure.
  • OKR Goal Setting 101: Achieve more goals than ever! Faster! This online learning program is available through learning website Udemy. To participate in this workshop, please:
  • Measure What Matters by John Doerr: The Dean’s Office has extra copies of the book, which is the foundation of the OKR practice. The book teaches readers how to use the OKR management system to identify priorities, set ambitious goals, clearly measure and track them, and motivate and align everyone on your team. If you are interested in borrowing a copy, please contact Beth Smith.
