Inspiring Women

We’re committed to working towards a more gender balanced future.

We’re breaking down the physical, cultural and mental barriers that women face, through our research, our education programmes, and our networks.

On our MBA and Executive Diploma programmes we offer additional scholarships to encourage women into leadership. These are aimed at women who can demonstrate business excellence and who can be inspiring role models for others. We are proud to be the first business school to have received the Athena SWAN Silver Award for improving gender equality.

Our students, alumni, faculty and staff are an inspiring and diverse group of individuals who are striving to make a positive change in the world of business and beyond. Here we’ve collected just some of their stories.
