Imperial College Business School

United Kingdom



Imperial College Business School equips the leaders of today and tomorrow with the knowledge, skills and values they need to transform our world. The school focuses in particular on equipping students and executives with the methods, networks and skills to help business and society get to net zero, while also working to make our world more equitable.

The school’s commitment to positive impact is reflected in our governance structures, including our Associate Dean of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and Diversity Committee. It is also visible through our involvement in College initiatives such as ‘WE Innovate’, Imperial’s female entrepreneurship programme, and the Institute for Deep Tech Entrepreneurship, which helps commercialise innovations that can tackle the world’s grand challenges.

A strong focus lies in offering Climate Innovation. This includes ‘Accelerating to Net Zero Emissions’, developed with Imperial’s Grantham Institute, and implemented at Bain & Co. The Gandhi Centre for Inclusive Innovation’s Social Impact Day brings together academics, entrepreneurs, students and industry experts to find ideas that can change a million lives.

The school offers a master’s program on climate change from a management and finance standpoint, and the MBA has an ESG and stakeholder specialisation. Undergraduates follow a mandatory module that introduces them to the concepts and practices of sustainability across sectors and contexts. All students complete a ‘Working in Diverse Organisations’ module. The MBA ‘Global Experience Week’ exposes students to the challenges and opportunities of doing business in emerging markets, focussing on social and environmental impact.

The school’s executive education programme on Sustainability Leadership won a 2023 Financial Times Responsible Business Education Award. It was developed with the Leonardo Centre on Business for Society, which is working with the Laidlaw Foundation to develop a leadership and mentorship program with focus on leading with integrity for selected College undergraduates.
