London Business School Website
The London Business School (LBS), founded in 1964, is an international business school and a constituent college of the federal University of London. LBS is one of the most prestigious business schools in the world; the school was ranked 1st in Europe (2014, 2015, 2016 Rankings) by the Financial Times and 2nd in the world (for Business and Management Studies; 2016) by the QS ranking. In 2013, LBS was reported to have among the most wanted MBAs in the world by recruiters, comparable to those of Harvard, Stanford and INSEAD.
In 1966, the first Executive Development Programme was launched, followed by the Senior Executive Programme.
LBS awards only post-graduate degrees (Masters, MBA, PhD and EMBA) and is one of the few schools in the world to have the triple crown accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA).
The main campus is located in London next to Regent’s Park in the Sussex Palace, built by the architect John Nash. Unlike most other business schools, LBS organises courses in listed buildings in London instead of new buildings with a modern architecture. In 2015, the school acquired the Marylebone Town Hall and spent £60 million to refurbish it with the objective to expand its teaching facilities by 70 per cent. LBS also has a secondary campus in Dubai that is dedicated to Executive Education.
