Business Partnerships (formerly known as Corporate Relations Unit) within the Research Division is responsible for developing, designing and managing long-term, sustainable research partnerships with businesses. We are interested in fostering any relationship that contributes towards high quality academic research.
The role of business in society is changing and growing, and more companies are recognising the benefits of cooperation and contribution to their societies. Partnering with LSE to co-create top quality social science research brings great opportunities for companies to engage in influential debates and increase their understanding of their operating environments.
LSE has grown to become one of the foremost social science universities in the world, with an academic profile spanning a wide range of disciplines - from economics, politics and law, to sociology, information systems, and finance.
LSE confirmed its position as a world-leading research university with an outstanding performance in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). An analysis of the results show LSE as the top university in the UK based on the proportion of 'world leading' (4*) research produced, and second in the UK overall when universities are ranked using a 'grade point average' (GPA).
