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 studies the social sciences in their broadest sense, with an academic profile spanning a wide range of disciplines: economics, politics and law, to sociology, information systems, and accounting and finance. There are 19 departments and institutes and more than 30 research centres.
Several subjects were pioneered at LSE, including anthropology, international relations and social policy. LSE's Research Lab is the base for more than 260 staff - one of the largest concentrations of applied economic, financial and social researchers anywhere in the world.
