Regarding the new series of events, LSBF’s Executive Dean of Business School, Dr. Ann Throne said: “At LSBF, we encourage students to get involved in networking activities as early as possible. With the current job market, schools should enable students to have the opportunity to meet business leaders, and not only learn from them but share their personal experience as future business experts. These networking events will give our students a competitive advantage when they go on to the working world, as they will have started developing relationships with important leaders from an early stage.”
