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 development, not just an academic journey.

By its nature, Business is an applied discipline – but 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

You’ll study holistically, looking at behavioural and green economics, and how these work across a range of companies today. 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 case studies to recreate workplace conditions.

Within every course, whether undergraduate or postgraduate, there’s the opportunity for a placement or internship.

A big part of our community is our extracurricular activities. We bring in professional bodies and people from industry for seminars, book clubs, leadership clubs, hackathons and much more. Our students and staff agree it really enriches their time here.

Thrive together

In 2019, the Business School moved to a new home, designed to form a central point for our community.

The set-up has a contemporary business 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.

Here in the very heart of South London, we thrive together. The School’s Business Solutions Centre, which is run by students and supervised by staff, offers problem-solving ideas to anyone in the local community with business issues. It’s been so successful that the Centre is now branching out to become involved with other areas, such as Kensington, with a Business Solutions roadshow taking place at Kensington Library.

Stay at the forefront

As technology takes us further into the digital age, the way the business world works is constantly changing. As a modern Business School, we’re focused on the impact that digital innovation and disruption are having on industries nationally and globally. We’re committed to staying at the forefront of developments and investing our time and money to make sure our courses are always up-to-date to today’s business challenges and needs.
