The Booth School of Business has announced that their London campus will relocate to a larger facility in the City of London by spring quarter of next year.
Booth’s new campus will be located in One Bartholomew Close, a brand-new office building in the center of London. The campus will be across the street from the Barbican Underground station, steps away from London’s financial center, and a few Tube stops away from many of London’s other landmarks and business centers.
The 43,796-square-foot facility will occupy the first three floors of the One Bartholomew mixed-use building and feature two tiered classrooms along with event space and open study space for students, alumni, staff, and guests. The new urban campus, which has easy public transport access to London Heathrow Airport, will expand the University’s presence across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
The campus will continue to host Booth’s Executive M.B.A. program as well as additional non-degree programming, conferences, and speaker series.
The campus will be a sister facility to the Booth School’s Hong Kong location, which opened in December of last year. According to President Robert Zimmer, the new facility reflects Booth’s international approach to business and finance, as well as the University’s mission to increase the number of opportunities for its students across the globe.
“Global engagement is fundamental to the University’s ambitious efforts to create new opportunities for research and education, and it is an integral part of Chicago Booth’s distinctive model of business education,” Zimmer said in a press release.
