Project Description

This extension is an addition to the renowned University College Dublin School of Business, expanding on the square meterage by 50%. It features a range of new facilities to enable business students to tackle complex ideas through the latest advances in learning technology.  Integrating fully with the Quinn School across three levels, the €20m expansive wing includes interactive learning hubs, a 320-seat lecture theatre, and extensive co-working zones designed to mimic those in start-ups and innovation hubs. Key features include the PwC Lecture Theatre, the KPMG Skills Zone, the EY Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub and the George Moore Digital Collaboration Space.

Professor Anthony Brabazon, UCD Dean of Business said: “The UCD Moore Centre for Business exemplifies how leadership from, academia, industry and the student body can collaborate to design an educational environment that not only looks towards the future, but is made with flexibility at its core in order to prepare students for a rapidly changing future. The new facility is an exciting part of ongoing campus development plans that firmly place UCD as Ireland’s global university.”

Associate Professor Maeve Houlihan, Director of the UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business said: “Our students have told us that when we change spaces, it changes how we teach and what is learned. The UCD Moore Centre for Business allows our students to stretch and thrive both in and outside of the classroom, along with faculty and fellow students, which is a better representation of how they will work after graduation. This learning environment gives them added insight and experience in developing communication and problem-solving skills, teamwork know-how, and inter-cultural confidence. This is about students, about business, about society and about changing the way we live and work. This is the future of business education,”.
