Combined Postgraduate Programmes
Combined Programmes at LSBF is an initiative that allows you to pair LSBF postgraduate degrees with other programmes to tailor your education to your specific career aspirations. There are a number of opportunities, from professional qualifications to tailored management development programmes, all available to be combined with any of the LSBF postgraduate degrees.
The benefits of the Combined Programmes at LSBF are unique, allowing students to:
- be cross trained, drawing upon the resources of a global business school
- develop two corresponding networks of peers and alumni through LSBF’s international network of graduates and professionals
- be identified by employers as having comprehensive subject knowledge, combined with highly developed soft skills
Dual Programmes bring together the best in internationally recognised business degrees and professional qualifications, such as ACCA*, CIMA*, CFA®**, and CIM**. A unique concept devised by LSBF, the Dual Programme initiative allows students to follow a postgraduate programme alongside a highly valued professional qualification, developing a powerful skill set and raising their profile with potential employers.
*To complete the MBA/MSc course students must pass 14 ACCA (15 CIMA papers, ie.: CO1-T4) papers (i.e.: F1–P5). Students may be admitted onto the MBA/MSc course prior to passing their final three ACCA/CIMA papers. SUBSEQUENT TO COMMENCING THE MBA/MSc COURSE, SHOULD A STUDENT DISCOVER THAT S/HE HAS FAILED ANY ACCA/CIMA PAPERS, S/HE WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND OF ANY AMOUNT PAID. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, FAILURE OF ANY ACCA/CIMA PAPERS WILL NOT ENTITLE THE STUDENT TO A REFUND OF ANY AMOUNT. The awarding body for the MBA/MSc course will be one of LSBF's partner universities (subject to validation); however, awarding bodies are subject to change from time to time. The School's obligations shall be discharged by providing tuition leading to a recognised MBA/MSc award by a recognised awarding body. The School reserves the right to change the awarding body, and will notify the student as soon as reasonably practicable. In light of this, the student agrees that they shall have no claim based on changes to the awarding bodies. The MBA/MSc is subject to validation and meeting academic criteria to be undertaken online only. International students cannot study while in the UK.
