For more than 120 years, LSE alumni have emerged from our central London campus to transform global societies. Our graduates are Nobel Prize winners, world leaders, heads of industry, leading academics, teachers, campaigners, policymakers and influencers whose endeavours in their lives and careers after graduation embody our founders’ vision.

In creating a ‘London School of Economics and Political Science’ – a centre not only of lectures on special subjects, but an association of students who would be directed and supported in doing original work” they sought to develop a community that would transform people and societies by understanding the causes of things. 

LSE is wonderfully internationalist and diverse in its outlook – much like the city in which the School is rooted. As well as taking pride in our alumni’s achievements globally, we are proud of the contributions former students make on a daily basis to professional and civil life in and for London.
