The School of Management has heavily invested in upgraded facilities and support over the past years, including:

A student enterprise suite (opened by Swansea Alumnus Sir Terry Matthews in 2013): The School of Management is one of the few UK universities which gives students access to a dedicated entrepreneurship start-up suite. We offer a range of business support facilities such as business mentoring for start-ups and an active entrepreneurship society. We also provide a range of physical facilities for students including a hot-desking suite for student start-ups, print copy facilities, 3-D printing for rapid prototyping and a range of meeting or production spaces.

A financial trading and simulation room: In summer 2013 the School of Management opened a new trading and simulation room. This facility includes state-of-the-art computing facilities and is designed to support simulation activities – both within the financial sector such as investment and trading as well as a range of business topics such as supply chain management, decision analysis and operations management. We are one of a select few schools in the UK to offer a dedicated trading and simulation suite to our students. The suite is home to our investment society and is backed by global trading and investment company OSTC.

Expanded student social space: We provide a Junior Common Room (JCR) for all our undergraduate and postgraduate students to meet, relax and socialise. We also provide several group work rooms with presentation facilities for students to come together on group projects and practice team working or presentation skills.
