The College expanded its portfolio of courses in 2019 to include the International Tourism and Hospitality Management, Foundation Year studies for the BSc (Hons) qualifications for Business Management and Health and Social Care Management, MSc Business Management and Master of Education (MEd) programs. In 2020, the College secured course validation for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program with the University of Chichester.
The Diploma in Education and Training (DET) qualification allows learners to register with the Society of Education and Training (SET), a professional membership organization of the Education and Training Foundation for practitioners working in the post-14 education and training sector. This enables an application to be made for QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills) status, inspected by the Office for Standards in Education. Our new HND in Business qualification introduced by Pearson in September 2016 follows the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). Our courses are approved for government funding via Student Loans Company (SLC).
LSME is a Signatory to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (UN PRME). The integrated model of teaching and learning provided an opportunity to redesign our curriculum and programs to ensure that the six PRME principles are central to our research, teaching, administration, and management. We make a conscious effort in incorporating social responsibility, ethics and sustainability in our teaching and learning activities.
LSME has an ambitious research agenda and has been promoting Responsible Research and Innovations (RRI) since 2015. Thus far LSME has organized eight international research conferences attended by young and expert researchers from across the globe. Four of these conferences were held in London, while two were held in collaboration with our international partner institutes in India. Two virtual conferences have been held since August 2021. The drivers for adopting RRI as a central theme in our research agenda follow from our belief in PRME and the drive to develop young researchers committed to responsible research that has a direct and meaningful impact on society. It also provides an opportunity to work with like-minded national and international institutes and expand our international outreach.
Giving back to the community is also part of the founding principles of LSME. Our community outreach projects include a close relationship with selected local schools and charities to help the less fortunate to move into higher education.
The College currently holds a TEF Bronze Award and we continue to work towards the achievement of our overall mission.
