Work is continuing on the development of Aston Business School which is due to open in December.
The £20.3 million scheme will see a five storey-high extension enabling the school to further develop its conferencing and academic facilities. There will also be an additional 80 luxurious bedrooms, restaurant and lounge bar to appeal to its corporate client base.
Funding for the development has been provided by Barclays.
David Glover, education director at Barclays, said: "Aston is currently ranked as one of the best business schools in the UK. This development is going to ensure that Aston maintains its position as a centre of excellence. I am delighted that we have been able to support them."
Guppy Dhariwal, finance director at Aston, said: "This is a significant investment and will ensure we offer facilities, resources and programmes that are among the best in Europe and are fitting for Britain's second city."
