The City of London is composed almost entirely


of financial services companies and is within easy
reach of South Kensington by public transport.
The Gherkin is a skyscraper which has become an
iconic symbol of London and the business district.

St Pauls cathedral sits proudly atop Ludgate


Hill, the highest point in the City of London.
Designed by architect Sir Christopher Wren, it is
one of the most famous and recognisable sights
in London. The cathedral is a busy working
church, hosting daily services as well as high

For anyone seriously considering a


future in business, London should
be your first choice. Selecting a
London-based university means
choosing to study in the business
capital of Europe, enabling you
to take advantage of Londons
corporate and financial power,
and to forge strong professional
relationships that will benefit
you for a lifetime. It is no
coincidence that London is a
base for most global players
in finance, consulting, IT and
professional services.

Piccadilly Circus is famous for its vibrant


neon signs, bronze statue of Eros and electric
atmosphere. It is a bustling junction and
meeting place for visitors and tourists, as it is
close to major shopping and entertainment
areas in the West End.

Located next to Imperial College, Hyde Park is


one of nine Royal Parks in the capital. Spanning
350 acres, it has 4,000 trees, a beautiful boating
lake, cafes, horse riding and an art gallery. The
park hosts outdoor concerts by the biggest
names in rock music including Pink Floyd,
Queen and the Rolling Stones. Our students
enjoy relaxing in the park between lectures.

many of the UKs tallest buildings, including the
Canary Wharf Tower.

The Business School is based in a


purposebuilt building located at Imperials
main campus in South Kensington. The
building was designed by world-renowned
architect Lord Norman Foster and was officially
opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004.

The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place


of the UKs parliament. This impressive building
is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Big Ben is the
nickname for the great bell of the clock at the
north end of the palace. The Elizabeth Tower, as its
now officially known, holds the largest fourfaced
chiming clock in the world and is one of the most
prominent symbols in the United Kingdom.

The Shard stands 306 metres high and


is currently the tallest building in Europe.
Theglass-clad pyramidal tower has a viewing
gallery and open air observation deck on the
72nd floor, which offers breath-taking views
acrossthe city.

It is difficult not to be inspired by all the


activities london has to offer. And when
you need a break from the stimulation
of city life, there is so much greenery,
from Hyde Park to Regents Park.

The focus of the programme is interdisciplinary,
combining advanced courses in both economics
and strategy, and is taught by leading scholars in
those areas at the intersection of organisational
theory and technological innovation. You will
be exposed to a broad range of thinking, from
corporate governance and financial risk to
energy economics, strategy innovation and
implementation.
We focus on understanding theory and its
application to business. As a recent business
graduate, with experience of studying economics
and business, you will develop your analytical skills
and strategic thinking, learning how to apply this
toolkit to a wide variety of situations.
Throughout the programme, we emphasise the
development of problem-solving and decision
making skills within an organisational setting,
while our integrated professional development
programme aims to ensure you develop the
necessary soft skills for career success.
This unique combination provides a valuable
platform for you to consider and pursue a more
generalist path in business over the course of
your career.
