The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has unveiled the design for its HK$380 million Hong Kong campus in Mount Davis.

The new campus is expected to change the skyline of Hong Kong Island's westernmost hill, a former military bridgehead, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported Wednesday.

The school plans to offer an executive MBA program on the 66,000 square foot site, which it won at tender in 2013. 

It paid a token HK$1,000 for the right to occupy the land for 10 years. 

The plan for the three-storey campus has been put up for public consultation and will be reviewed by the Town Planning Board in March.

It is estimated that construction, which will begin next year and is due to end by 2018, will cost US$50 million.

The school started to recruit the first batch of 86 students in August. The 21-month EMBA program costs HK$1.2 million.
