It’s exciting times for CUBS UCC with plans afoot for the new Business School in Cork city centre after €17.25m was invested in a new site at Union Quay that has planning permission for a 200,000 sq ft building.
Thia Hennessy, Dean of CUBS UCCC, spoke to Anthony McDonnell, Professor of Human Resource Management and presenter of the Insights podcast, and explained the importance and need for this new business school.
This will be a huge project, she explained, and with increasing student numbers, will be badly needed, providing more facilities, bigger lecture halls and an entrepreneurship hub, as well as providing added vibrancy, increased footfall and a boost to Cork city itself.
