The University of Huddersfield is marking the 25th anniversary of its Master of Business Administration (MBA) course this month.

And the Business School is celebrating the milestone in its brand new £16.5m centre on the site of the former Albany Mill at Firth Street.

Former students and staff have been invited to a drinks reception and buffet at 6pm on Thursday October 28.

Nick Glynne, managing director of Deighton-based Buy It Direct will speak at the event.

MBA director Steve Lawson said: “It will be a chance for former students to meet the lecturers who taught them and to see the new business school.

“They will also have the opportunity to network.”
