The Moghadam Campus Hub: An Enduring Legacy
In March of 2023, Aiglon College embarked on the largest and most ambitious project in our school’s history, the Assembly and Dining building located on the Orchard Site in the centre of our alpine campus. We are honoured to announce that alumnus Hamid Moghadam (Alpina, 1973) and his wife Tina have generously donated a gift of US$ 6 million towards this project. In acknowledgement of their generosity, Aiglon College will name the building complex “The Moghadam Campus Hub”. By publicly naming this centrepiece building, Hamid and Tina will be a source of inspiration for current and future students to strive for success and achieve great things, while emphasising the importance of giving back.
Born in Tehran, Iran, Hamid attended Aiglon from 1970 until 1973 when he was admitted to MIT at the age of 16. He earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering in 1977 and a master’s degree in engineering in 1978 from MIT before completing an M.B.A. at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1980. Hamid is the co-founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Prologis, Inc., one of the world's largest real estate companies. Under his leadership, Prologis has grown to become the largest owner, operator, and developer of logistics real estate in the world, with over 4,000 customers in 19 countries. The company's portfolio includes over 1.2 billion square feet of logistics real estate, serving a wide range of industries, from e-commerce and retail to manufacturing and transportation. Hamid has received numerous accolades for his business leadership, including being named one of the 100 most powerful people in global finance by Worth magazine and one of the top CEOs in the world by Harvard Business Review. Christina (Tina) Moghadam studied English and Communications at Stanford (class of 1978) before receiving her law degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 1984.
School Director Nicola Sparrow states, “This gift will leave a lasting impact on Aiglon’s campus and will serve as a constant reminder and inspiration to current and future Aiglonians. We are proud to have this centrepiece building bear the Moghadam name.”
At Aiglon, the importance of community cannot be overstated, and this new building will be a crucial component in bringing people together. It will serve as the central gathering point for the entire campus, where students, faculty, and staff can come together throughout the day. It will accommodate social events and gatherings, including meditation, assemblies, lectures, performances, and communal dining, strengthening the community feel that lives at the heart of our educational approach. We look forward to celebrating the inauguration of the Moghadam Campus Hub in August 2025.
We are deeply grateful to Hamid and Tina for this extraordinary act of philanthropy, which reflects a shared belief in the importance of education as a catalyst for positive change.
