London School of Business and Finance

LSBF is a Private business school based in London, United Kingdom.

Each year LSBF welcomes students from over 70 countries into its classrooms. These students, and those from the UK, benefit from our vibrant multi-cultural environment which is vital to success in education and business.

  • The London School of Business and  FINANCE was founded by entrepreneur Aaron Etingen in 2003. It began as a provider of accountancy and finance programmers and training for professional qualifications such as ACCA and CIMA, later expanding to provide undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in partnership with other higher education institutions.
  • LSBF opened its first campus outside of the UK in Toronto, Canada, in February 2011. In June 2011, LSBF opened an institute in Singapore, the first Asia-Pacific campus of a UK-based business school. At both international offices, the school provides accounting programmers and professional qualification training.
  • In March 2010 LSBF launched an MBA that students may complete in as little as eight weekends To accomplish this, LSBF offers one of the eight required courses on campus each weekend, allowing students to acquire an MBA in a relatively short period of time compared to as long as two to three years at traditional institutions.
  • In October 2011, the British television channel BBC Three featured the LSBF School of English in a documentary about a group of young immigrants who went to the UK to realise their professional ambitions. One of the students was an LSBF student who enrolled for an English course to be prepared for an important job interview.
  • In April 2012, LSBF formed a partnership with London Metropolitan University, as part of which a suite of new London Metropolitan University-validated undergraduate, postgraduate and professional programmes were delivered by LSBF at its UK campuses, for both UK and international students.
  • In December 2012 this joint partnership was ended by mutual agreement, with both LSBF and London Metropolitan University issuing the following press release "Both parties have agreed that, although much had been achieved during this period, given the basis on which the partnership had begun, and the changes in the higher education market, it would be better for each institution to take independent paths.
  • In 2014, LSBF was the winner of two Global Business Excellence Awards 2014 in the ‘Outstanding Educational Service’ category. The school’s founder and executive chairman won the ‘Outstanding Executive’ award for his leadership and approach to the delivery of high quality education.
  • LSBF is one of the institutions that have taken part in the government’s policy to widen participation in higher education courses, by introducing Higher National Diplomas and Higher National Certification programmes which are funded by the government. Following a report by the National Audit Office which looked into higher education funding, LSBF said, through letters published by The Guardian and Times Higher Education, that private provision can make an equally positive contribution and that the alternative sector too requires reliable benchmarking data to avoid popular opinion being influenced by prejudice.
