Further we will have easy access to the metro station and all the services of the A Bloc shopping centre.

What is our new building called?
Our new building will be called School of Business.
Our building is a part of a building complex, the other two parts are Väre and A Bloc.
Väre is the name of the new building for School of Arts, Design and Architecture (ARTS).
A Bloc is the shopping centre, under which the Aalto University metro station is located.
Why Business 3.0?
The project name comes from the fact, that this will be the School’s third home.
When School of Economics was found in 1911, the School’s premises were at Fabianinkatu 26. The relocation to Töölö was made in 1950, when Runeberginkatu 14-16 was ready.
