Prof. Ioannou quoted in The Telegraph

According to Ioannis Ioannou, assistant professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at London Business School, there's another strong indicator that the ethos of business education is changing. "You can detect upcoming trends by looking at what the academic conferences are doing," he says. "The Strategic Management Societies' annual international conference has the theme of 'strategy and sustainability', which tells you that it's going mainstream.

My Research

I am a strategy scholar whose research focuses on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). More specifically, I seek to understand whether, how, and the extent to which the modern business organization contributes towards building a sustainable future. My academic work evolves around two main themes: a) understanding how investment analysts, and the public equity markets, perceive, evaluate and react to corporate engagement with, and integration of, environmental and social issues into strategy and b) understanding the multiple factors (e.g. institutional, regulatory, behavioural) that may affect, drive or hinder, the corporate decision to adopt environmentally and socially responsible strategies.
