Course content

Located in Bush House, in the heart of London, King's Business School is one of the UK’s most prestigious academic centres for the study of management and business with an outstanding reputation for the quality of our research and teaching. It has been ranked top in London for Business & Management studies (The Complete University Guide 2019) and the Business School’s research output is ranked in the UK’s top 10 in Business and Management according the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

The School is a member of the innovative, multi-institutional LISS-DTP group (London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership), which draws together doctoral training opportunities at some of London’s top institutions: King’s, Imperial College London and Queen Mary, University of London. Supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), this partnership offers doctoral students excellent opportunities to develop their research skills and experience and to work as part of an interdisciplinary community of researchers.

Our research is built around a number of strategic research centres and groupings, which conduct both theoretically-driven and applied research. These groups are inclusive and active, encouraging cross-group membership, interdisciplinarity, and collaboration with members of the School and other researchers across the College. In addition, we have strong links with leading scholars from across the world, as well as with researchers and practitioners in private and public sector institutions in the UK and abroad.
