Up to Full Capacity with London’s Andrew Likierman

Andrew LikiermanThe London Business School benefits enormously from Prof. Likierman’s broad experience. Unlike many deans, Sir Andrew has spent much of his career outside academia working in both the private and public sectors with appointments that have included running a textile factory in Germany and heading up the government’s accountancy service. This business experience has helped maintain the School’s sense of intellectual freedom and diversity. Prof. Likierman’s return to academia as dean has undoubtedly further enhanced the reputation of the School. By all accounts, he is a stickler for academic integrity and this suits the ethos of the London Business School which is not to take a fixed view on the world (in contrast to many of their American counterparts). This has helped maintain a strong faculty against completion from better endowed rivals. With his academic rigour, management experience and strong leadership and a characteristically British style the School has managed to expand to what must be close to full capacity. Rather like London’s international hub Heathrow, Prof. Likierman has taken the School to the point where without physical expansion the School has reached its limit.
