Our faculty

Expertise and academic rigour

Our faculty works at the forefront of innovative business thinking, influencing business leaders, managers and policy-makers across the globe, creating world-class research that explores the key practical and academic issues facing the business world.

It is the vision of the School to have a profound impact on the way the world does business, and the way business impacts the world, and we believe that to do so we must draw strength from our cultural diversity. The faculty is made up of over 30 nationalities from across the globe, with an age range of 29 to 73. 26% of our current faculty are female. Amongst our equality objectives, we are committed to increasing the number of female faculty and students as well as expanding our ethnic profile. We believe that London Business School offers an environment in which to work and study which is safe, welcoming, open and respectful to all.

As one of the world’s leading business schools – working in one of the globe’s most exciting business centres – our faculty has unparalleled access to organisations and institutions.
