New Business School for Wolverhampton

Work has now been completed on the new Business School in Wolverhampton’s University Quarter. The £18m flagship building opened its doors to Students in November 2015.

The new building, which is to be named the Lord Swraj Paul Building, sits at the heart of the University’s City Campus – Molineux, right next to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Molineux Stadium. The six storey centre is home to an executive education suite, innovative teaching and learning spaces, an IT suite, consulting rooms and a central social space and café.

Following on from more than 80 years of providing business education in the city, the new building aims to reflect the University of Wolverhampton Business School’s growing reputation and engagement with the business community in the region.
