Sustainability at the Heart of the New Cardiff School of Management at UWIC


The ambitious pounds 20m project to build an academic centre of excellence is almost complete at UWIC's Llandaff campus. The new Cardiff School of Management building, which opens for business in August and is part of UWIC's commitment to invest more than pounds 50m to improves its campuses, will enable the institution to become a leading centre in the UK for teaching and research in subjects including business, hospitality and tourism.

Cardiff School of Management take the issue of sustainability very seriously. This is no better illustrated than by its commitment to embed the theme across all of its newly validated business programmes.

Commenting on the new courses, director of learning and teaching Theo Koukouravas said: "Our philosophy stems from our desire to reflect present conditions and future needs for all of our students.
