LSBF launches Global Accounting initiative
London School of Business and Finance has announced a Global Bundling initiative in collaboration with its international partners, launching the MSc in Global Accounting combined with LSBF’s Association of Chartered Certified Accountants course.
LSBF’s ACCA courses are combined with business or finance related degree programs from international higher education providers, bringing together accountancy, finance and business in a unique educational blend.
“[Students] will now have access to a greater wealth of opportunities, having been trained to succeed in a wide range of careers in finance”
The degree programs will provide in-depth knowledge of the key aspects of accounting, with an additional focus on the global business environment.
The content and structure of the course are inspired by the need for graduates to enter the workforce with a broad set of skills in business and finance.
This is intended to improve their career opportunities, benefitting from the educational offer provided by the vast range of institutions partnered with LSBF around the globe.
Starting in November 2019, the program has been designed in collaboration with The University of Law (providing the MSc degree), Toronto School of Management, LSBF Singapore, Berlin School of Business and Innovation and Concordia University Chicago.
Each institution has paired at least one of its existing business programs with LSBF’s ACCA courses.
The degrees will prepare students to sit the ACCA papers in order to qualify as chartered accountants, whilst also gaining the necessary skills and knowledge to aspire to a wide range of roles in finance.
The programs will be delivered on campus by all institutions, as well as being available online through the e-learning platform, InterActive Pro.
This is to offer flexible solutions for students and professionals looking to gain a further qualification, with new intakes in December, March and June.
Rob Sowerby, director of Professional Courses at LSBF, said: “LSBF is committed to providing programs that prepare students with the skills and insights necessary to succeed in the finance and accountancy industry.
“With the Global Bundling initiative, our partners will bring their experience in international business teaching, adding value to the educational offer available to our students. They will now have access to a greater wealth of opportunities, having been trained to succeed in a wide range of careers in finance.”
