New Derby
Business School
In City Centre

Welcome to the future of business, in the very heart of Derby. We are working to make our vision a reality - a brand new, future-focused Derby Business School, serving as an international centre of excellence.

The future of business

Set to open in 2025, our new Derby Business School building is set to feature superb new teaching facilities which will build on our established reputation for inspirational teaching and research excellence, as we shape the next generation of highly qualified business leaders.

Planned to be net zero carbon in both its construction process and operational management, it will be the first net zero business school outside of London and forms part of our wider promise to sustainably support entrepreneurial growth and business connectivity in Derby.

As a university, we take the environmental responsibility for our large estate seriously, and this new building aligns with our zero carbon research theme, which aims to reduce the negative effects of climate change and create a better future for the next generation.
