The University of Chicago Booth School of Business plans to relocate its current campus in London to a larger space in historic London, in an effort to expand its activities and presence in this region.
The move from Booth’s current London campus, at 25 Basinghall Street in the financial district, to its new campus, which is located in a newly constructed office building at One Bartholomew Close in Barts Square, is planned for late spring 2020. The state-of-the-art campus will continue to be home to Booth’s Executive MBA Europe Program, and its larger size will permit expanded programming, such as MBA classes, non-degree executive education, academic conferences and seminars, and other events. With 43,976 square feet of space on the first three floors, the new campus will include two executive-style tiered classrooms, flexible event space, and open areas for alumni, students, and guests.
University of Chicago President Robert J. Zimmer says, “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. Our expanded presence in London will bring together faculty, students, alumni and visitors from around the globe to work in one of the world’s great financial and cultural centers.”
The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has campuses in Chicago, London, and Hong Kong. It was the first school to introduce an executive MBA program, and the first to establish a truly global presence, with permanent campuses on three continents.
“This move represents Chicago Booth’s renewed commitment to the Executive MBA program in Europe and will broaden the school’s impact across the Europe, Middle East and Africa region,” notes Madhav Rajan, dean of Chicago Booth and the George Pratt Shultz Professor of Accounting. “Our campus will be located in the heart of the city, in a newly developed neighborhood that showcases the best of London. I expect this will serve as a vibrant home for our faculty, staff and students, and as a welcoming venue to host our external community of alumni, prospective students, and corporate and government partners.”
