London Business School (LBS) and The Royal College of Art (RCA) have entered into a new partnership that will enhance the innovation and entrepreneurial skills of our respective students.
The initial three year partnership allows students to benefit from each institution’s world-leading and complementary expertise. It also provides design and business students the opportunity to work together and to gain different perspectives and skills from interdisciplinary collaboration.
As part of the partnership, 40 LBS students have the opportunity to take five RCA design course modules this academic year, where they will work on business innovation projects with RCA students. Similarly, 40 students studying an MA from the RCA’s School of Design are able to take six business modules offered by LBS. In addition, RCA faculty are also delivering a course on the MBA curriculum, titled Design Led Innovation to over 170 LBS MBA students in March this year.
Both institutions are recognised as world leaders in their respective disciplines and the goal of this collaboration is to create a new generation of creative business and design leaders, as well as to pioneer new models for interdisciplinary innovation.
