The UCL School of Management was established on 1st August 2015, replacing the Department of Management Science and Innovation. The School significantly expands UCL’s research and teaching in business and management, with a focus on innovation, technology management, analytics, and entrepreneurship.
New programmes will be available for postgraduate students in management, finance, business analytics and financial technology entrepreneurship. The School will also offer a broad range of undergraduate and other postgraduate programmes and will conduct world-leading research in organizational behaviour, innovation and creativity management, strategy and entrepreneurship, and analytics.
Professor Bert de Reyck, Director of the UCL School of Management, said: “Establishing the UCL School of Management marks a milestone in the history of UCL. We aim to create a top school committed to the delivery of world-leading research, economic and societal impact and robustly academic business training. We will achieve this by partnering with other leading universities, businesses, and policy makers, and by fostering close links with other UCL departments in engineering, economics, medical sciences, psychology and statistics.”
From September 2016, postgraduate programmes will be taught in new premises for the UCL School of Management, occupying Level 38 of One Canada Square in Canary Wharf, the UK’s major global business district. Undergraduate programmes will be based on the UCL Bloomsbury campus, with all students being able to take advantage of the benefits offered by both locations.
