LSBF launches summer business school

The London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) has announced plans to launch a new ‘summer business school’ programme.
The four-module summer school course will cover topics such as marketing, leadership and global business. It’s open to any student taking an undergraduate course, although LSBF says that fluency in English is “advisable to allow students to take full advantage of the course”.
The private college group expects the summer school to attract 100 students this year, and will charge course fees of £2,100 for the full four-week course. Students have the option of taking individual modules for £800. 
Anton Baboglo, managing director of the business school at LSBF, said the summer school will give students the chance to “acquire global skills and develop further language and business knowledge in an international environment”. 
In November last year, LSBF named Dr Maurits Van Rooijen as its new chief executive. In an interview with Education Investor, Van Rooijen said that the group was expanding its teaching into shorter courses and new curriculum areas. 
LSBF announced last month the launch of a new range of online courses delivered on the e-learning platform InterActive. Each package includes personalised tutor support, online coaching and a collection of pre-recorded lectures.
