Onward to our second year together

By François Ortalo-Magné

As the new academic year gets under way, I am delighted to see our campuses in London and Dubai welcoming new members to our community. Among those joining us in 2018/19 are 485 MBA students from 64 nationalities, our biggest intake to date; talented staff in all areas of our business; and 11 new research faculty members including five women – further evidence of the power and prestige of our brand.

LBS is a very special place and my wife Sondra and I have quickly come to feel at home here. Over the past 12 months, I have witnessed in so many different ways the dedication that everyone brings to ensuring our success – combined with great energy and positivity. Let’s harness this in delivering our priorities and do great things together in the year ahead.
