Hult International Business School Introduces Hult Impact Research

Global business school creates research ‘ecosystems’ to study and address issues important to the future of business and education

BOSTON & LONDON--()--Hult International Business School has launched Hult Impact Research, a renewed research strategy that supports the school’s purpose of making an impact that matters and to drive innovation and engagement around broader societal issues. Hult Impact Research can be found at

Research activity is organized via intellectual communities on specific topics, called Hult Impact Labs, with contributions from faculty at Hult campuses around the globe, including Boston, London, San Francisco, and Dubai. Hult Impact Research launches with three Labs: Futures Lab, focused on global risk mitigation and future readiness; Sustainability Lab, focused on industrial and societal sustainability transitions; and Coaching Lab, aligned with the Hult Ashridge Center for Executive Coaching and focused on connecting science and practice in the executive coaching field.

According to Johan Roos, the Chief Academic Officer at Hult International Business School, Hult Impact Labs are designed as evolving "intellectual ecosystems" for interdisciplinary scholarship about the forces that shape management, leadership, organizations, and business today. With a focus on practical problems and new perspectives, the Labs aim to contribute the sustainable value creation needed to advance our society.

As part of the initiative, Hult International Business School will map a Post-Doc Fellowship program and will align its existing Doctoral programs with the new research areas.
