WORK has started on an £11.5 million makeover for Sheffield University’s Management School.
The school, which has more than 1,800 students, is moving from the University’s Law School to its Crookesmoor Building, which will be extensively redeveloped over the next seven months.
New facilities will include a state-of-the-art executive suite for meetings and conferences, three lecture theatres and eight seminar rooms.
Management School Dean Professor Keith Glaister said: “The Management School at Sheffield is at a crucial stage of its evolution.
“We have experienced dramatic growth in student numbers, increased our academic reputation in research and accreditations, and begun to climb the international rankings.
“Our new location in the refurbished Crookesmoor Building will provide excellent facilities to help achieve our further ambitions.”
