The Wheeler Institute for Business and Development builds on London Business School’s strong tradition of growing and inspiring future leaders who will strive to do better business around the world. Through our world-class teaching and on-the-ground research we encourage students to expand their horizons and push existing boundaries – whichever region they go on to work in.


Our students increasingly want to understand ways in which they can make a meaningful difference in their careers. The Institute provides a focus for our LBS teaching in this area and shows students how to pursue a successful career while also bringing about positive social change.

More than ever, our students are aware of the business case for sustainability. The Net Impact Club has grown from 110 registrations in 2010/11 to 948 in 2015/16.

Our students and alumni speak eloquently about some of the life-changing experiences they gained at LBS and how these have inspired them in their working lives after they graduate. We empower students to use their new business skills and experience for good and to have an impact wherever they find themselves working – whether it’s a start-up in an emerging market or a corporate in the developed world.
