A platform for future leaders 
to discover, develop and practice
their leadership competencies, as they contribute to our community and beyond. 

The Student Leadership Incubator is a collaboration between London Business School's Leadership Institute, Career Centre and Experiential Learning team.

With focus on learning beyond the classroom, this bi-weekly,
8 month learning incubator acts as a compliment to your leadership roles within the London Business School community. With the support of peers, coaches, faculty and others, you can explore and experiment with your leadership competencies.


The Leadership Incubator is anchored in three key principles.

Take every opportunity to know & develop yourself

Academic excellence in practice

Lifelong peer networks


From October to May, the Incubator is designed to support an iterative process of exploration and experimentation through reflection, insight, and practice. Every two weeks, alongside your peers, you'll cycle through the following core components:

  • Intimate faculty seminars

  • Wise crowd workshops

  • Peer-led Action Learning sets

  • 1 to 1 coaching

Having [the Leadership Incubator] throughout the year really helps you to take the time to slow down, step back and think about what you want to achieve as a club leader.

...the opportunity to practice different leadership and management skills in a setting with fellow students, in a safe setting, where it was okay to get something wrong, that to me is completely invaluable.
