Adam Smith Business School - creating our new home. The proposed new development for the Adam Smith Business School, incorporating additional space for PGT growth across the university, will be transformational for the School, College and University.  This case is made on the basis of three mutually-supporting enhancements: corporate connections, learning and teaching innovation, and research culture and environment. The Adam Smith Business School will play its part in contributing further to major corporate relationships across the University, and support the University’s ambitions through the Innovation Quarter to extend its activities in enterprise and entrepreneurship - a Business School for the University.

The Story So Far

The project was presented at the Capital Projects Governance Board on 19 September 2017. The aspects covered were the site location, culture change/external engagement at the Adam Smith Business School and the University-wide PGT case. The final approval for appointing the design team was completed at the Finance Committee on 18 September. An announcement on the design team is imminent.
