About the University
Imperial College Business School is the business school of Imperial College London. The business school was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004. Around 90 percent of the faculty are from outside of the United Kingdom, with alumni in 124 countries.
The business school history can be traced to its earliest origins in 1955 when the Operational Research/Management Science (ORMS) course began at Imperial in the Production Engineering Section of the Mechanical Engineering Department.
There were only 5 students enrolled when the program started in October 1955 at 14 Prince’s Gardens, with an arrangement in place for scholars to be able to attend one-day intensive economics and accounting courses for one or two terms at the London School of Economics. The agreement became a joint one lasting until 1966. However, in the mid-1960s, there was even the idea of forming a joint School of Administration, Economics, and Technology (between Imperial and LSE) but this was eventually rejected in favor of a new graduate school of business being initiated in the capital. Imperial and LSE acted as co-sponsors in the establishment of this new school, named the London Graduate School of Business Studies and now known as the London Business School.
Therefore, the London Business School’s first academic planning board contained the heads of Imperial College and LSE.
From the ORMS course, a Department of Management Science (DMS) was founded at Imperial in 1971, under the administration of Samuel Eilon. The department was comprised of staff and students from Imperial’s Industrial Sociology Unit and at its source had 15 academic staff and about 60 students on an MSc course. Over the ensuing years, the department grew and its priority shifted toward business studies.
More so in1987, the Department of Management Science was combined with Imperial’s Department of Social and Economic Studies to form a new School of Management, established in 2 large Victorian houses on Exhibition Road. David Norbun was the first Director and the School launched a new three-year part-time Executive MBA course.
