  3. 3. Introduction Student-led activity makes a huge contribution to the vibrant atmosphere at London Business School. Our students organise over 1000 events each year - ranging from social, cultural and sporting occasions to high-profile speaker engagements and internationally recognised industry conferences. For students, clubs provide personal and professional development opportunities to complement their academic studies. Clubs are a melting pot for our students to learn, develop (and have fun!), whilst forming lifelong friendships and networks. Some will benefit from honing particular expertise, some will explore the future direction of their careers, while others will simply enjoy pursuing activities and hobbies during their time in London.
  4. 4. Introduction For businesses, partnership with student clubs enriches your presence on campus and improves your profile to our students and alumni network of over 35,000. Such partnerships will also fulfil multiple business objectives – whether recruitment, CSR, marketing or creating speaker opportunities for your senior staff. We hope your business will become involved with the London Business School student community in the 2013/14 academic year, and we look forward to working with you.
