School means Business in stylish new location

Leeds University Business School has moved into a new home in the former Leeds Grammar School on the Western Campus of the University.

The imaginative transformation of the 19th century grade II listed building gives LUBS an ideal location to achieve its ambition to become a major international school.

A building transformed - Dean of the School Andrew Lock and Chris Taylor of Fine Art

Over 100 representatives from regional and national companies and organisations attended the official ceremony in the new Maurice Keyworth building, where the opening address was given by the managing director of Lehman Brothers investment bank Mary Jo Jacobi.

"Leading business schools can act as major economic generators, as well as being hubs of significant international business and economic networks," said Dean of the School, Professor Andrew Lock. "We feel it is vital to have such a school in Britain, and in particular, in Yorkshire."

The Business School has purchased the works of a number of contemporary artists, including Karen Babayan, Phil Redford and Deirdre Kelly (see noticeboard). In addition to the exciting design of the building conversion, the display of these works around the school aims to create an inspiring and stimulating environment for staff, students and visitors, whilst creating an important collection of original works by regional and national artists with both local and international connections. The works are on view throughout the public areas of the building.
