About the School

Disrupt and develop the new normal, with our applied approach to business

LSBU Business School is teaching-led and puts students at its heart. We see every student as a whole person, on a journey of personal and professional development, not just an academic journey.

By its nature, business is an applied discipline and at LSBU, we really apply it. Every Business School course has a professional accreditation. It’s a badge of quality that means respected; professional bodies recognise our courses as delivering the right skills for the professionals of tomorrow.

Study holistically

At the LSBU Business School, you will study a curriculum designed with employers and industry in mind. You will have the opportunity to apply cutting edge knowledge and skills to real life scenarios. When our graduates go for a job, they can say they haven’t just learnt it, they’ve actually done it. We want you to hone your skills in practice wherever possible, so we use live briefs, simulations and live case studies to recreate workplace conditions.

Within every course, whether undergraduate or postgraduate, there’s the opportunity for a placement or internship. Plus, we hold regular coaching sessions, CV clinics, and work experience opportunities to support our students in developing impressive CVs, making them workplace ready.

Thrive together

The business school runs programmes across both our Southwark and Croydon campuses where students have access to state-of-the-art resources and equipment in our business school building and teaching spaces. The set-up has a contemporary feel, with flexible space that can be used for everything from large meetings to informal get-togethers. Everyone shares the space – you’ll meet with your personal tutor here and find a home for quiet study.

There is a real sense of community within the Business School thanks to the many extracurricular activities which take place for and led by students. These include our public speaking club, our book club, language cafes, research seminars and student led events and celebrations.

The school’s Business Solutions Centre is run by students and supervised by staff, and offers problem-solving ideas to anyone in the local community with business issues. Now running across both our Southwark and Croydon campus sites, our students get the opportunity to work and network with local businesses from across south London.
