We generate research and ideas that have a real, lasting influence on people businesses and markets around the world. To do that, we have to make sure we’ve got the people, the tools and the infrastructure to share our thinking globally. In this role, you’ll deliver outstanding events that make a positive impact on the aspirations and achievements of LBS students.
