LSBU is headed by the Board of Governors which is responsible for overseeing the institution's activities, determining its future direction and fostering an environment in which the institutional mission is achieved and the potential of all learners is maximised.

The University Executive, led by the Vice-Chancellor, is responsible for the executive management of the University and implementing the decisions of the Board of Governors.

Our Academic Board is responsible for the academic activities of LSBU including quality and standards, policies and procedures for granting qualifications and titles.
