Imperial College Business School is renowned for its strong commitment to world-class research
Imperial College London has the highest proportion of world-leading and internationally excellent research of any UK university: 91 per cent of College research activity has been judged as world-leading or internationally excellent (namely the proportion of research activity rated 4* or 3* in the Research Excellent Framework, REF).
This success is replicated within Imperial College Business School: we submitted 94 per cent of eligible faculty for the most recent REF, which we believe is substantially higher than many comparator institutions:
- 92 per cent of the School’s research assessed by peer review in the REF was classed as "world-leading" (4*) or "internationally excellent" (3*).This was the highest proportion achieved by any institution in the Business & Management category and improves on our 2008 result of 85 per cent.
- 49 per cent of our research was assessed as 4*; the 2008 result was 35 per cent.
- 89 per cent of our research outputs were deemed to be 4* and 3*, which places Imperial College Business School ahead of all other institutions in business and management.
