Imperial College Business School is situated in the heart of Imperial College London’s South Kensington campus, one of London’s most vibrant and attractive neighborhoods. 

As part of Imperial College London, which is a global leader in science and technology, Imperial College Business School combines business and technology to drive global business, social transformation and an entrepreneurial mindset through its 13 Master's programmes, four MBAs and Doctoral programme

Imperial College Business School’s campus also boasts some of the very best teaching, research and leisure facilities, including:

South Kensington is one of London’s most attractive neighborhoods, and is at the heart of ‘Albertopolis’; the realization of Prince Albert’s vision for an area where science and the arts would come together. As a result, some of London’s most famous cultural treasures are just around the corner for you to explore, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and Science Museum. Another near-by iconic venue is the Royal Albert Hall where Imperial College Business School’s graduation ceremonies are held.

For a relaxing break from studying, students head over to one of London’s largest and most popular parks, Hyde Park or neighboring Kensington Gardens which is one of the capital’s eight Royal Parks.

For those who fancy a spot of shopping at the weekends, the campus is also just around the corner from Knightsbridge where some of London’s most exclusive shops are located, including one of the world’s favorites – Harrods. 

And when it comes to eating and drinking around South Kensington, London has everything you need –from the Farmers’ Markets to afternoon tea at a five-star hotel.
