Our BSc (Hons) Business, Accelerated Degree aims to provide a stimulating, multicultural learning environment in which students aspire to become global citizens capable of contributing effectively and responsibly.

At LCIBS we seek to foster internationalism and professionalism providing programmes that embody a spirit of international understanding and cooperation, allied to a high-level of professional capability and responsibility.

During your studies at LCIBS you will understand and engage with the following:
  • The changing and dynamic nature of business-related disciplines within an interconnected globalised and complex world
  • The influences/impact that externalities, such as the political and economic environments, have upon business and society
  • The on-going development of careers within a business-related environment and the need to continually enhance and develop a range of skill sets to participate both within a business and societal context

You will also learn how to develop a level of emotional resilience to operate within challenging environments; be adaptable and flexible to the changing needs of organisations and society as a whole; global diversity in terms of cultures, ethical behaviours, communication, environmental awareness and social responsibility; learn and develop through a range of group and individual practice-oriented learning experiences; develop self-reflection, self-critical and personal skill sets; explore areas of both personal and career interest through the pathways and acquire competencies in interpersonal skills that will be beneficial to a future career.

Entry requirements

We look for passionate and committed students, and encourage applications from students with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Every application to LCIBS is considered very carefully on its individual merits.

We have two routes of entry:
  1. UCAS tariff points: Typical entry – 60 UCAS points and an Admissions Workshop. Even if you have or are predicted to get those grades, we will still invite you to attend an Admissions Workshop. We want to find out more about you and make sure the course you’ve chosen is right for you. Just as importantly, it’s also a chance for you to find out more about us.
