I chose to study with LSBF because it just seemed really perfect for me. Since graduating, I doubled my salary and I’m much happier in the position that I am in. I’m working for the industry I want to work with, so it changed my life for the better. Business School
With my supervisor, it was a very relaxed approach. He made me feel very confident and relaxed while doing my work. Business School
I know at the beginning it’s a bit scary studying on a platform – you don’t see anyone, so you are uncertain. Just follow your gut and just do it. Stay connected and network, network, network, because networking is the key. Business School
