LBS celebrates 50 years of its MBA programme

Earlier this month the Science Museum 400 alumni, faculty and students gathered at the Science Museum in South Kensington for a celebration of the 50th anniversary of our MBA programme. Special guests included members of our first graduating class, made up of 38 men and one woman.

Dan Cable, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, spoke about findings in his new book Alive at Work and highlighted the importance of engaging rather than suppressing employees’ seeking system – a part of the brain that drives humans’ curiosity and desire to seek knowledge. He also took part in a question and answer session alongside Bart Becht, Chairman of JAB.

Addressing guests at the gala, Dean François Ortalo-Magné paid tribute to members of the first graduating class.

“I’m delighted to have members of our very first class here to celebrate with us - along with alumni from across our programmes. This is a manifestation of the strength of our community and the longevity of the relationships that we build,” he said.
