On March 19th, the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia unveiled a new facility, which it says will inspire "a new approach to teaching innovation and entrepreneurship."

With the "Innovation Laboratory," or i.Lab for short, Darden hopes to supplement its standard case study-based classroom curriculum by providing more collaborative and hands-on experiences to its MBA students. The school likens the new approach to methodologies more typical of social science programs like anthropology and sociology.

The new laboratory will also include a design studio, where students can transform their product ideas into concrete prototypes.

For more information, please see Darden's website.
