London Business School is one of the world’s elite business schools. We shape business practice and transform careers across the globe. Our academic strength drives original and provocative business thinking, empowering our people to challenge conventional wisdom in a truly unique academic environment.

 

London experience

 

Location is everything. The strength we draw from the cultural diversity, the hunger and dynamism of London, sets us apart like no other school. We offer unparalleled access to some of the world’s most successful businesses, who work right on our doorstep.

 

Our people are a reflection of the city in which we are based, where commerce, finance, science, the arts, media, heritage and multiculturalism collide with energy and enthusiasm.

 

Academic excellence

 

We are thought leaders with an unquenchable thirst for learning and a devotion to world class research and teaching. Our international faculty is the best in the world. In the classroom, they share their research and thought leadership with you. In the boardroom, they advise some of the worlds’ biggest clients. 

 

Our people benefit from this combined expertise, all the while learning how to have a positive impact on the way the world does business.

 

We are the only non-US business school to have been ranked number one in the world for our full-time MBA programme (Financial Times) and we hold the highest average research score of any UK higher education institution.  

 

World view

 

We think global. We provide a varied, multicultural learning environment that gives us a global edge and a unique competitive advantage. 

 

We are a melting pot of ideas, energy and influences. Ninety percent of our Masters degree students come from outside the UK and our Executive Education participants come from more than 130 countries.  Exposure to our unique academic environment and access to the 40,000 strong worldwide network of alumni, continues to shape successful careers around the world.

 

Ours is a global school with global ambition. Big business, small business and entrepreneurs all benefit from our unmatched diversity of thought. No other school can guarantee such a richly diverse, vibrant, hungry and connected experience, nor such a powerfully global perspective..
