Facilities

The new LSBU Business School building was opened in Spring/Summer 2019

The new LSBU Business School building has allowed for all facilities for economics, accounting, marketing, management and business students to be in one place. The new look Business School opened in September 2019 to all Business School staff, undergraduate and postgraduate Business students.

For the first time ever, our academics, support staff, students and entrepreneurs will be working side by side in our very own state of the art community space within which we can work, study and socialise together.
