LSBF appoints new chief executive

The London School of Business & Finance (LSBF) has named Dr Maurits Van Rooijen as its new chief executive. 
Van Rooijen joins the private college group from his role as chief executive at the Nyenrode Business University in the Netherlands. Prior to this, he was vice-president for international and institutional development at the University of Westminster. 
Commenting on his appointment, Van Rooijen said: “Over the last nine years, LSBF has achieved a very impressive level of academic and international development. 
“LSBF is now a mature institution and it is one of my goals to strengthen the school’s position in the global higher education market as well as LSBF’s collaboration with other top institutions.”
In an interview with EducationInvestor, Van Rooijen said that he expected much of the group's growth to come through partnerships, offering a range of teaching, curriculum design or market infrastructure to other institutions.
These partnerships are a "tailor-made concept," based on “what [the partner’s] strategic objectives are and what we can do to help them achieve them", he said.
The chief executive also said that the group was expanding its teaching into shorter courses and new curriculum areas, highlighting its ownership of the London College of Contemporary Arts.
He did not rule out further acquisitions.
