London South Bank University’s (LSBU) division of accounting and finance has been recognised as one of the best in the UK after jumping an impressive 21 places since last year, in The Guardian’s annual university league table, making it into the top four per cent of university accountancy and finance departments in the country.

The University has achieved 4th place out of 102 institutions in 2017.

The results break down into the following categories:

  • Accounting and Finance at LSBU is ranked number one for satisfaction with course;
  • Accounting and Finance at LSBU is ranked number one for value added;
  • Accounting and Finance at LSBU is ranked number two for satisfaction with teaching.

LSBU as a whole has also risen from 107th place out of 119 last year to 92 out of 121 this year in the same league table.

Mike Molan, former Dean of LSBU’s School of Business said: “This is a very pleasing result for LSBU’s Accounting and Finance Division, up by 21 places on last year’s position and up by 49 places in The Guardian’s league table just four years ago.

“LSBU is now in a very strong position, challenging other institutions known for the strength of their finance and accountancy degrees. It has achieved this impressive result despite being ranked only 97 out of 102 for its average entry tariff this year.

“This is very obviously a team effort, of which every one of us who has been contributing to the work of this division can justifiably be proud.”
