As part of Global University Systems, a network of more than 20 higher education institutions, LSBF continues to expand and adapt to meet our students’ needs. In 2013, we received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for our achievements in international trade, giving us the prestigious honour of being one of only a few private higher education institutions to receive such a distinction.
