London School of Business and Finance was established in 2003 and has grown from a single college focused on professional qualifications to an institution providing executive education courses as well as postgraduate degrees delivered online.
LSBF has campuses in the UK and Singapore and delivers programmes via an online learning platform, which allows students to study entirely online from anywhere in the world.
LSBF is a member of Global University Systems (GUS), which is a growing network of 20 institutions and academic partners providing education to over 75,000 students worldwide.
The first overseas campus was opened in Toronto, Canada, in 2011 (since then the brand has been rebranded to Toronto School of Management). It was followed by the Singapore campus later that year, making LSBF the first UK-based business school to have a campus in the Asia-Pacific region.
In 2011, David Blunkett – the former UK Home Secretary and Education Secretary – was appointed as a visiting lecturer. He has continued to be involved in LSBF’s operations ever since, including conducting interviews for the school’s Great Minds video series with figures such as Richard Branson, Deborah Meaden, Tony Blair, and Sir John Major.
In 2013, LSBF won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. Subsequently, in 2014 LSBF won two Global Business Excellence Awards for ‘Outstanding Educational Service’ and ‘Outstanding Executive’.
In November 2016, LSBF’s Executive Education programmes became British Accreditation Council (BAC) accredited. In 2020, LSBF won the Best Use of Social Media Award by PQ Magazine.
