The Wrekin Business School concept was launched in September 2014, construction on the new buildings to house the dedicated teaching facility began in summer 2016 and was completed in January 2017 with an official opening ceremony on Thursday 26 January.
The Wrekin Business School provides our Accounting, Business Studies, Economics and Psychology students with an environment in which they can immerse themselves in the world of business. We want them to add a practical component to complement the academic elements of the subjects they are studying. Within this environment our students will become involved with real businesses, have the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with entrepreneurs, establish a trading room where shares are traded (based on a realistic computer generated model) and meet as a board to run a real company.
