Meet our Faculty
Just like our students, the academic staff at GSM London come from a diverse range of backgrounds and with that they bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the classroom.
Many have spent years in industry, others are involved in leading-edge academic research, and some offer extensive experience in both areas. There are also those who joined the world of academia through GSM London's very own Teaching Fellows progamme. What they all share is a passion for education and a determination to ensure that every student fulfils their potential, in the classroom and beyond.
