LSBF Singapore launches undergrad banking degree
The London School of Business and Science (LSBF) in Singapore has launched a new undergraduate degree in Banking Practice and Management, which will be awarded by The London Institute of Banking & Finance.

The three-year Bachelor of Science (BSc) will cover essential elements of the global financial services industry, particularly in retail and commercial banking, providing essential knowledge of specific areas of the sector.


Graduates from the programmes, delivered at LSBF's Singapore city centre campus, will receive a British degree and also earn Chartered Associate status with The London Institute of Banking and Finance, an internationally recognised qualification in the banking industry.


"By partnering with The London Institute of Banking & Finance, we will be able to deliver in Singapore a bachelor's programme that ticks all the boxes when it comes to preparing students to enter the global financial services industry," said Rathakrishnan Govind, Managing Director of LSBF in Singapore.


Adding to this, Alex Fraser, CEO of The London Institute of Banking & Finance, said, "It is our goal to support the career development of banking and finance professionals both at home and abroad and as such we are delighted to be working with LSBF to promote our degree in Singapore.


"By combining our joint expertise, we can develop the skills and knowledge of the city's professionals, to ultimately support growth in one of the world's leading financial centres."


Established in 2011, the LSBF Singapore campus delivers a range of postgraduate programmes, including the Master of Business Administration, but the new BSc Banking Practice and Management is the institution's first venture into undergraduate degrees.


"We have been waiting to start an undergraduate programme for the past three years," said Rathakrishnan. "This will be our first, and we believe that it will be very successful with our students."
