NEW HOME FOR KINGSTON BUSINESS SCHOOL


IAG boss Willie Walsh formally opened Kingston University new £26m Business School building earlier in the spring and lost no time in attacking the coalition government’s transport policy. He said growth opportunities in the UK are slowing down and investment is going elsewhere because of ‘misguided and misplaced’ government policy, which he said undermined the UK’s reputation as an entrepreneurial economy. ‘Without question, investment is going to other parts of the world. I meet business people who are locating in places like


Frankfurt instead of London. They would prefer London, but they’re saying the environment isn’t conducive to investment so we’ve got to recognise this as a key economic issue. Government policy needs to be urgently reviewed, or ten years from now we’re going to look back and say, “How did we lose all that?’’’


Professor Jean-Noel Ezingeard, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, said the state-of-the-art facilities would only serve to enhance Kingston Business School’s growing reputation. ‘This great building will provide world class facilities to match the School’s reputation for programme innovation and research excellence,’ he said. ‘Kingston thrives on diversity and


has students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines mixing with each other. Looking ahead, this building will be a springboard for even greater things.’
