LBS logo London experience. World impact.

Every year, London Business School confers Honorary Degrees, Honorary Fellowships and Fellowships to distinguished individuals. The awards are an important way for us to recognise the major contribution that people connected with the School have made to our continued success.


Honorary Degrees are mainly - but not only - for academics of other institutions of international standing with a connection with the School. Fellowships and Honorary Fellowships are for those who "have rendered exceptional service to the School and/or attained outstanding distinction in business." They can include present or former members of the School's staff and alumni.
