Business school relocates European campus to London
The University of Chicago Graduate School of Business is to relocate its European campus from Barcelona to London. The move will be effective Summer 2005.
Chicago GSB Dean Edward A. Snyder said that after a highly successful decade in Barcelona, the school is moving its Executive MBA Program to leverage London's corporate and financial power, and the city's connections to market-oriented economies around the world. Snyder said the change will enhance academic and professional opportunities for GSB's students and alumni - many of whom work in London.
The new GSB campus will be located in the Woolgate Exchange at 25 Basinghall Street.

Asset Skills, the Sector Skills Council for property services, cleaning services, housing and facilities management, was officially launched in Wales on January 17th.
At the launch event, Jane Davidson, Assembly Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning, said, "I want to ensure that Asset Skills and the other Sector Skills Councils across Wales work together to give us the information from employers to ensure we get the right kind of relationship with the training providers, and we deliver the best opportunities to people across Wales at different times in their careers."
Chief Executive of Asset Skills, Richard Beamish took the opportunity to reassure employers of the priorities for Asset Skills. After being asked if Asset Skills are on the side of employers or Government, he said, "We are employer-led. Our board and council are made up of employers and their representative bodies. Employers tell us what they need; we then help them make that case to Government. We are definitely on the side of employers."
