Welcome to the list!

As D'Arcy pointed out, WordPress MU doesn't have to be used for
hundreds of thousands of blogs, but definitely has the potential to do
so (we use it with WordPress.com). It gives you extra control and
takes a lot of the work out of managing a series of blogs. It would
work very well for what you're describing and shouldn't present any
significant technical challenges.

Several departments using one blog is not that complicated. A
different theme could be used for each department and it would still
be much less complicated than managing 10 or 15 different blogs.
