The MLab community is unique. It brings together some of the world’s leading business thinkers, academics, executives, institutions and organisations.

Founding Partners

UBS is MLab’s first corporate founding partner.

Founding status is open to corporations and individuals who are passionate about realising the MLab’s mission. Support through a seed money grant or a gift-in-kind allows us to publicly acknowledge your commitment and provide you with access to leading edge management thinking and practice.

Participating Partners

Participating partners work intimately with MLab’s internationally renowned faculty and staff in generating a number of bold management innovations relevant to partner organisation’s goals. If the bottleneck to sustainable competitive advantage is a lack of management innovation then investing in MLab’s unique Jam workshop process help address these issues.

Research Partners

MLab also includes research partners. As well as action research with participating partners, MLab also undertakes more traditional academic-based research projects around a number of pre-defined challenges directly linked to management practices. These range from raising the returns on human capital to rethinking the customer interface.

Sponsorship of a research topic will provide direct access to leading edge management practice in your chosen field. MLab also involves individual thought-leaders as partners. If you are an inspired management innovator working in academia or in industry and who would like to join the MLab’s innovation team as a scholar-inventor then do get in touch with us.

Through temporary appointments, thought-leader partners benefit from MLab’s pooled resources and are on the front line in identifying and enacting bold management innovations.

“Innovation, learning and entrepreneurial leadership are among our stated values for achieving our goal of being the world’s best financial services company. We are looking forward to working with MLab to find new and innovative ways of managing our business for the benefit of our clients, staff and shareholders,”
Jeremy Palmer - CEO of UBS Investment Bank - Europe, Middle East and Africa
