King's Business school has conducted a wide range of executive and professional interventions since our inception in 2017.
Our programmes, whether international or domestic, for credit or not for credit, are enthused with two of our guiding principles: they are 'King's Rich', meaning that we ensure that the programme is taught using content informed King's cutting-edge research, and that they are inter-disciplinary, King’s have long recognised that the roots of most global challenges are complex and span academic disciplines. King’s cultivates an interdisciplinary approach with academics bringing expertise in their given fields whilst sharing their expertise to deliver change. This approach takes strength from the whole of King’s College London: creating time, drive, and opportunity to embed transformational learning outcomes.
Listed below is an award winning example of our work in collaboration with one of our clients. The example demonstrates the breadth and range of our expertise and speaks to the high-quality output and impact that our programmes create.
After the LGE, I was more motivated to aspire to new challenges, and I was selected among the new batch of prospective middle managers. Since the programme I have joined more sector transformational mega projects that my team and I hope would vastly change how Egypt's oil, gas, and mineral resources industry operates

King's Leadership for Government Excellence
Leadership for Government Excellence (LGE) was an innovative programme for Egypt’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Development, delivered through a powerful collaboration between King’s College London and the American University of Cairo (AUC). This programme won the silver award for the EFMD Excellence in Practice 2023 in the category of Talent Development.
LGE supported one of the largest and most rapid change initiatives in Egypt’s history and an ambitious Vision 2030 for Egypt’s economic development. King’s and AUC created a programme to challenge the mindsets of 120 leaders from across the breadth of Egyptian government, forging alignment in those driving this essential change agenda, championing, and transforming delivery of public service through modern and efficient operations in the new Administrative Capital. A learning needs analysis carried out in Cairo identified a need to address change at individual, organisational and system levels.
A key deliverable of LGE was providing impact at an organisational level. LGE addressed this by stimulating creativity and innovation with participants working on real projects they can implement in the New Capital. A total of 24 value adding projects were designed during this programme and several projects were approved by their ministries and implemented. The programme created an immediate opportunity to apply frameworks and evaluative methods to their own ministry.
Programme evaluations indicated high levels of satisfaction from participants with improved knowledge, broadened operational thinking in the areas of responsible management within the public-sector, employee engagement, organisations culture, leadership skills. LGE fostered a shared experience and culture of collaboration across Government providing wider understanding and a valuable self-supportive network to bolster participants as they lead change.
