If you’ve been hearing a lot of talk of a need to recruit candidates strong in innovation and gifted with the entrepreneurial touch, then you have been listening. If furthering these skills in business school is something you are considering, then it might interest you to know that the London Business School will be opening its Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship later this month.

From an interview with LBS’s Dean Andrew Likierman in the WSJ:

WSJ: How will the institute focus on innovation?

Sir Andrew: There are three main areas. One is about research into innovation as a process. The second aspect is what we do for students here. We have innovation and entrepreneurship as part of the core curriculum. Also, we have courses for practitioners. The third area is being highly involved with the world of [entrepreneurs]. Our involvement with the world of practice informs both the research and the teaching. The teaching itself is to people who generate cases, so that feeds across into the research.
