University College London (UCL) is one of the world's top universities. At its establishment in 1826, UCL was radical and responsive to the needs of society, and this ethos – that excellence should go hand-in-hand with enriching society – continues today. UCL's excellence extends across all academic disciplines; from one of Europe's largest and most productive hubs for biomedical science interacting with several leading London hospitals, to world-renowned centres for architecture and fine art. With an annual turnover exceeding £1.5 billion, it is a major research and education hub in London and globally.
UCL's staff and former students have included 34 Nobel prize winners. It is a truly international community: more than one-third of our student body – more than 43,800 strong – come from 190 countries and one-third of staff are from outside the UK. UCL offers postgraduate research opportunities in all of its subjects, and provides more than 200 undergraduate programmes and more than 400 taught postgraduate programmes. Approximately 55% of the student community is engaged in graduate studies, with about 30% of these graduate students pursuing research degrees.
The UCL School of Management consists of five research groups: Strategy & Entrepreneurship, Organisations & Innovation, Operations & Technology, Marketing & Analytics, and Finance, Accounting & Economics. Faculty in the Strategy & Entrepreneurship group share an interest in how organizations, markets, and industries are being reshaped by technological and cultural forces. Research topics include artificial intelligence, big data analytics, machine learning, information environment, platform ecosystems, new organizational forms, decentralized organizations, learning, innovation, interorganizational relationships, corporate strategy, entrepreneurial strategy, reputation and identity, entrepreneurship for development, and social innovation.
