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."
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.
