King’s Business School asks challenging questions of business and wider society like: What is the meaning of work? Should business be more ethical? How can we measure productivity? What is modern slavery? Are AI and big data the future of finance?

King’s Business School (KBS) contributes towards answering these questions, changing the way business works whilst tackling the world’s major challenges for the good of the economy, the environment, society, and businesses everywhere.
