Edinburgh Business School

Keith Lumsden, founder, Edinburgh Business School

"Edinburgh Business School is fully committed to making Panmure House a place where the fundamental principles that underpin the world’s most pressing problems can be debated and discussed just as they were in Smith’s day." Prof Keith Lumsden. Founder & Academic Director, Edinburgh Business School.

Edinburgh Business School is the graduate school of business at Heriot-Watt University. Home to the world’s most popular MBA programmes, we have 11,000 active students and more than 15,000 alumni. Students can choose to study at home, here in Edinburgh or with one of our many partner institutions across the globe. More than 40% of Fortune 500 companies have students on our courses.

Common belief

Our belief in the power of the individual and in the shared nature of learning echoes Smith’s own thinking and provides us with the inspiration to drive the Panumre House project. We aim to bring the world’s brightest minds to Panmure House, to make this building once more a hub of radical thought and dynamic, inter-disciplinary study.
Crucially, this will be an open, accessible building. The people of Edinburgh, students, local and international businesses and tourists alike will all find something to captivate them in these walls.
