Dr Ian Brooks, Executive Dean of The University of Northampton Business School, said:
This new strategic partnership is an exciting development between a modern, ambitious public university and a highly respected and flexible private provider. It is designed to capture the synergies between the two institutions to enable the delivery of high quality higher education globally.Dr Ian Brooks
Prof James Kirkbride, LSBF Vice-Rector, said:
LSBF works with university partners to offer a wide variety of industry-relevant courses. LSBF offers students a varied dynamic programme; ensuring students are academically and professionally work ready. Aligned to this, LSBF launched the unique Trium programme earlier this year, an undergraduate or postgraduate degree enabling students to study for their degree alongside a professional qualification and unique career development, complete with a job guarantee.
The new partnership with The University of Northampton is an exciting new relationship for LSBF. Northampton is a leading university with a commitment to social entrepreneurship, for LSBF it is important to work with a University that is clearly committed to a high quality student expertise and one that is committed to social entrepreneurship.
At LSBF we work exclusively with partners who offer the very best in higher education standards. Northampton's excellent reputation will not only boost our current student offering, giving students even more choice, but will also complement LSBF's goals to educate and train business leaders of the future.Prof James Kirkbride
LSBF also offers a sponsorship and bursary scheme for students, ensuring students have access to education, whatever their financial circumstances.
