The Lincoln International Business School is breaking new important ground, which is also being respected internationally. Obviously the particularly human interaction with the staff and the students provides an ideal basis for an authentic, ethical business school. An interactive and dynamic open and mutable transformative education and development towards sustainability and resilience helps build a better future - LIBS obviously does this.
