LSBF and Manhattan Institute of Management join forces for international student mobility
London, 13 January 2016 – London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) and Manhattan Institute of Management (MIM) today announced a new agreement aimed at boosting international student mobility. The agreement creates the opportunity for students enrolled in programmes delivered by LSBF to study at the MIM campus, which is located in the Wall Street region, in the financial heart of New York City.
Commencing in April 2016, the initiative will start with a study abroad programme for students enrolled on a number of executive and postgraduate courses, such as the LSBF Global MBA and Mini MBA, as well as short programmes leading to Postgraduate Certificates and Postgraduate Diplomas. The study abroad initiative is targeted at those students who are looking for international exposure, flexibility and access to global employers in one of the world’s most important economic and business centres.
The partnership with MIM is part of the Global Experience package, a suite of flexible, career-focused courses delivered by LSBF. As well as New York, applicants will be able to choose to study a wide range of short and executive courses at campuses in London, Singapore, Germany, or online from anywhere in the world. The Global Experience package allows total flexibility as students can choose how and where they start and finish their courses, as well as having access to expert career advice catered to their professional needs. Students also benefit from being immersed in their studies in different cultural situations, which will further enhance their employability.
Founded in 1984, MIM has vast experience working with European institutions, both large and small. In addition to its prime location, the school has a solid track record with 23 other satisfied international partners, and a world-renowned In-Company Training Program.
MIM’s President, Joseph Ohayon, had glowing remarks about the partnership. He stated: “Global University Systems is an organization that we have admired from afar for quite a while. Seeing how their organization grew from just four students to over 50,000 speaks for itself. Through working together with them, the mutual benefit of our organizations will be apparent right from the start.”
Professor Maurits van Rooijen, Rector and Chief Executive Officer at LSBF, said: “International exposure is crucial for professionals to understand the elements affecting today’s global economy and that’s why we are very pleased to be working with the Manhattan Institute of Management. Our agreement will enable us to offer our students a higher level of international mobility and the possibility to study in one of the world’s greatest cities.”
“By working in partnership with universities, employers and other key players in the knowledge economy, our group plays a pivotal role in the globalisation of the sector and expanding access to quality education worldwide”, added Professor van Rooijen.
