About Imperial College Business School and Scholarship

The first World’s Fair was the Great Exhibition in 1851, which was planned by Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert. To transform South Kensington into a center for science, culture, and business, Prince Albert utilized the very profitable fair’s revenues to erect museums and universities there.

Royal School of Mines, City and Guilds of London Institute, and Royal College of Science were combined into one institution when Imperial College was founded by royal charter in 1907. King Edward VII laid the cornerstone for the Royal School of Mines structure, which is now a component of the Business School facilities, in 1909.


At 14 Prince’s Gate, Imperial’s first MSc in Production Engineering and Management was introduced in 1955. An MSc in Operational Research and Management Studies was introduced at Imperial in 1961. Operational research executive education short courses were introduced in 1964.

The London Business School was co-founded in 1965 with sponsorship from Imperial and the London School of Economics. The Rector of Imperial College and the Director of the London School of Economics were asked by the UK Government to serve as one of the seven people in charge of the academic staff at the London Business School.

A Department of Management Science was established in 1971. The Department of Social & Economic Studies was established in 1978. To create a management school at 53 Prince’s Gate, the departments of management science and social and economic studies combined in 1987. An Executive MBA program was introduced in 1989. A center for entrepreneurship was created in 2001. A distance learning MBA was established in 2002. An innovation and entrepreneurial organization was founded in 2003. At Imperial College London, business was promoted to faculty level in 2003.

With students from all around the world, Imperial College Business School is proud to be a worldwide organization. Students from Black or mixed-race origins are currently underrepresented in the student cohort, although efforts are being made to change this. They are providing scholarships to students of Black or mixed-race origins from all areas who can exhibit their leadership ability and who wish to contribute positively to the Imperial community to further encourage this.
