Prince Albert took a great interest in The Great Exhibition of 1851 and supported the idea of South Kensington becoming a hub for science and the arts. By 1907 the City and Guilds College, the Royal School of Mines and the Royal College of Science merged to create one university: Imperial College of Science and Technology. In 2008 the School was officially named Imperial College Business School.
Imperial College Business School’s programmes offer the opportunity to study at a global top-ten ranked university in the heart of London.
