University staff are also calling on former students from as far back as the first business lectures to share photographs and memories of their time in Coventry, and to return to the city to meet students and host guest lectures.
“We’ve come a long way since the 1960s and we want to bring all of this history and heritage together for all of our current students and alumni,” said Professor Heather McLaughlin, Academic Dean for the Faculty of Business and Law.
“A lot has changed in the past 50 years. Coventry campus has been transformed and the Business School is a far cry from the first class which gathered for lectures at the College of Technology.
“Since then we have produced some of the most renowned business leaders and led top-class research and innovation.
“We’ve also welcomed thousands of students who have gone on to be global leaders and innovators in business, and who are a testament to the benefits of higher education and to studying in Coventry.”
