The Queen’s award, which is conferred by the Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister, goes to organisations with “outstanding performance in international trade, innovation and sustainable development”. LSBF is one of the few private higher education institutions to have won the award.
“Winning the award gives us the confidence to improve both our corporate and academic operations worldwide”
Professor Maurits van Rooijen, rector & CEO of LSBF, said: “We are extremely proud to be presented with such a prestigious honour as the Queen’s Awards.
“Winning the award gives us the confidence we need to continue to work hard to improve both our corporate and academic operations worldwide.”
LSBF, which teaches more than 25,000 students from over 150 nations at its campuses – worldwide and online – said it had seen “great expansion and development”. Over the last 10 years it has opened additional campuses in the UK, Singapore and Canada and regional offices in over 10 cities around the world.
This month it opened a new campus in Toronto – its second in the city. It will provide “career-focused English courses” to around 200 students.
LSBF is also partnering with the British Columbia Institute of Technology to offer a new pathway programme leading to MBAs at selected universities in Europe and North America.
