Executive Dean
King’s Business School

King’s College London will launch King’s Business School in September 2017.  The College seeks to appoint an outstanding and inspirational leader as Executive Dean.

A research-led university based in the heart of London, King’s College London is one of the top 25 universities in the world (2016/17 QS International World Rankings), and the fourth oldest in England.  King’s has an outstanding reputation for providing world-class teaching and cutting-edge research, and houses over 26,500 students from 150 countries and approximately 7,000 employees.  It is in the top seven UK universities for research earnings, with an overall annual income of around £740million.

King’s Business School will be located in the recently acquired iconic Bush House buildings on the Strand, the original global communications hub of the BBC in the heart of London, and will be a standalone faculty within the College.

The Dean of the King’s Business School will have executive responsibility for managing the School and is accountable for it to the Provost/Senior Vice-President (Arts & Sciences).  The Dean sits as an ex officio member of the Academic Board and other College committees, and plays an important role in the management and governance of the College.  

The Inaugural Dean of King’s Business School will be an inspirational and experienced leader with a strong research background, able to provide strategic and academic leadership during a period of intense growth and transformation.  The individual will be key in enhancing the School’s international profile and reputation both internally and externally, capitalising on the College’s strengths in all fields of research. The successful candidate will be excited by the challenge of creating a Business School which will leave an enduring mark on scholarship, education, business practice, and King’s profile in the world.
