The Jutila Center for Global Design and Business

Finlandia’s Jutila Center, located at 200 Michigan street on the banks of Portage Lake less than a mile from the main campus, was opened in 2005. Formerly a hospital, the renovated building now houses Finlandia’s International School of Art & Design (ISAD) and the Lily I. Jutila Center for Global Design and Business. ISAD students enjoy spacious, modern studios and classrooms. The Jutila Center is a small-business incubator with more than 30 leasable spaces and other resources for business, including design and business consulting, rapid prototyping, and training seminars.

The Jutila Center facility is truly something special.  In order to accommodate our growing enrollment, Finlandia acquired and refurbished what was once Hancock's primary medical facility.  The various new studios and labs are expansive and professional in both appearance and equipment.  By combining design spaces within a business incubator, we have created a "community" where students, faculty, and business people interact and collaborate-sharing ideas, equipment, and workspace. Community entrepreneurs come for training, consultation services, and inspiration.

Over twenty service and retail businesses occupy the Jutila Center for Global Design and Business.  From wellness and design services to insurance, music studios, commercial photography, engineering, and software development, these innovative businesses are here to serve you.  Stop by the Jutila Center at 200 Michigan Street Monday through Friday and visit Hancock's popular Kangas Cafe overlooking Portage Lake.

The Lily I. Jutila Center for Global Design and Business is an integral component of Finlandia University.  Our on-site incubator eases the transition from college to business by providing a supportive and creative environment in which to develop business start-ups.  As ISAD's programs grow and more businesses inhabit this facility, The Jutila Center is becoming a thriving hub of education, innovation, and entrepreneurialism.
