Dear Ms Kidd

 

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request.  Please find
below the College's response to your questions.

 

1. Total MBA Budget per year, per course e.g. full
time/part-time/flexible/executive

1.1 If possible how much of this is spent on teaching, overseas trips and
scholarships.

 

To provide any figures relating to the budgets of the MBA courses offered
by the Imperial College Business School could prejudice the commercial
interests of the College, and as such the information is exempt from
disclosure under Section 43 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act.  This
states that information is exempt if its disclosure “would or would be
likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including the
public authority holding it)”.

 

This is because the Imperial College Business School operates in a
highly-competitive international marketplace, and to release budgetary
information into the public domain would potentially give an advantage to
peer Business Schools, both in the UK and internationally.

 

Although the College recognises that there is a public interest in this
information, it is the College’s view that, for the reasons outlined
above, the public interest in exempting the information outweighs the
public interest in disclosure.

 

2. The number of none academic staff that support the above courses e.g.
recruitment staff/administration staff/ operational staff. Can this
information be provided with if they are full time, part time etc, and the
type of contact and job title

Further information about these roles is the personal details of the

the Freedom of Information Act, which states that "any information to

(a) it constitutes personal data."
