List of people associated with the London School of Economics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list of people associated with the London School of Economics includes notable alumni, non-graduates, academics and administrators affiliated with the London School of Economics and Political Science. This includes 55 past or present heads of state, as well as 18 Nobel laureates.[1]

LSE started awarding its own degrees in its own name in 2008,[2] prior to which it awarded degrees of the University of London. This page does not include people whose only connection with the university consists in the award of an honorary degree.

The list has been divided into categories indicating the field of activity in which people have become well known. Many of the university's alumni have attained a level of distinction in more than one field, however these appear only in the category which they are most often associated.
