About the Wheeler Institute

The Wheeler Institute for Business and Development at London Business School aims to promote research that applies business insights to address the world’s most pressing challenges. We are particularly keen on business research that addresses economic and social challenges in the developing world, although we recognise the often inter-connected nature of these challenges, and their linkages to those in the developed world. Business contributions for development can be examined through the lens of any functional area or discipline and we leave it to those applying for support to argue the relevance and impact of their work to the topic of business and development. 

For an illustration of our work, explore the examples showcased on our website and in our Business Research for Impact brochure.


The Wheeler Institute’s Call for Proposals is open to all PhD students who have been invited to present their paper at the 2021 Transatlantic Doctoral Conference. We support research in any stage of its lifecycle and will consider applications from Accounting, Economics, Finance, Marketing, Management Science and Operations, Organisational Behaviour Strategy and Entrepreneurship and related disciplines. Eligible applicants may apply for research funding of up to £15,000
