About GLS

Now in its twelfth year, the Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is London Business School’s flagship thought-leadership event, bringing together senior level executives from around the globe. The Summit attracts over 500 global business influencers and decision makers, to discuss the critical issues affecting business.

London Business School at 50
London Business School is only 50 years old and in that short time we have accomplished so much. Our research, faculty, staff and students have helped us achieve global recognition and we are consistently ranked with the world’s elite business schools. It is a long way from the very small, very British school that opened in 1964, whose main focus was to help improve the manufacturing industry in the UK.
