LSBF is a college in Holborn (central london)
They offer Uni of Wales MBA which costs around £15k.
(http://www.wales.ac.uk/en/Home.aspx)
When it comes to Uni of Wales MBA I really don't think it's worth of spending 15 grands. It's not AMBA recognized as well.
One of my friends study for the same program for less than £5k in some college. (Can't remember the name)

As far as I remember they have two MBA programs, one is awarded by University of East London, another by Grenoble Graduate School of Management (France).

The Grenoble MBA I think is triple accredited and ranked by FT as 85th or something, while that from Uni of East London is neither accredited nor ranked.

the LSBF program awards an MBA from GGSM. i didn't see anything about wales there, but if there is something, it is not worth it - wales is one of thous programs that give their name to lots of schools around the globe, and this is not saying good things about them.

i am always skeptical about school giving degrees from other schools - does this say something about the quality of the program/school? i mean, GGSM is triple accredited, and maybe the program is designed there, but the LSBF is not accredited itself, which leads to the question - why?

maybe i am too suspicious......

Irma is right. Grenglobe is really good MBA.
but when LSBF say LSBF MBA its uni of Wales MBA for most of the time..which is not a good one.
Please double check with the uni about the course.

well I just called to LSBF. :)
The only course which has a January start is university of Wales MBA, which is a crap course in my point of view.

Grenoble MBA start only on october and cost you over £20k.
But that course seems pretty decent with triple accreditation.
I have no idea about what you mean by LSBF is not accredited by itself.

what i meant is that although they give a Grenoble MBA, which is a good school, with a triple accreditation and all, they are ot the Grenoble school themselves, but are only something like a subcontractor, which is allowed to use the name of a famous school and grant a degree with its name on it. how ever, i am not sure what it says about the quality of teaching in LSBF - i am sure that Grenoble don't just give their name to anybody(like wales does) but still, i am suspicious....

can anyone here explain how this things work? are accreditation given to programs or to schools?

Hi all!
GGSB is accredited and LSBF is not. That is true. But if LSBF is not good college why did GGSB give them permission to provide students with their programme? Or GGSB is in the same place taken by University of Wales? I think the matter is in the time. LSBF is young and looking for the ways to grow up. LSBF also has an ACCA platinum and gold statuses which make it respectable.

so, whats is the difference between the MBAs(wales and GGSB), apart from the accreditation? did you compare the courses? the teachers?

this is an interesting case - a school that grants two different MBAs, both not his own, one from a very good school, and the other from a bad one......

this might have to do with the age of this school, but i would have thought that a school looking for good reputation would dump the wales program once they got GGSB.

LSBF is listed in the GGSB website as being their London campus. If you enlist for the GGSB MBA then your course structure as well as lecturers ar different. The GGSB course of LSBF is advertised by GGSB as their "own" but offered in the LSBF campuses.
That raises the question as to why not apply to get into the GGSB campus itself. Well, the answer is that GGSB campus in France doesn't offer the MBA in Finance which London does. So, it all boils down to what you want to specialize in.
For my 2 cents worth, GGSB degree is well accepted and respected in the industry and in other related fraternity. If you are looking for GGSB degree in LSBF then you can consider it but if it is for the other degree that LSBF offers - forget it!

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

I have never seen any university "bad university" status awarded. So, here is place to say "not leading" university if you want to compare GGSB and Wales.

LSBF has excellent faculty with a huge practical experience especially in Finance. GGSB and Wales programmes are delivering by the same tutors.

LSBF is British university and it is also important to provide with British diplomas as well. So Wales helps them with it. As I know Wales programmes have been created by the LSBF itself.

you have a point about "bad university" - no such thing, or just a relative thing. what i meant is that wales university degrees are not as respected when you compare them to Grenoble. it may well be that the quality of teaching is as good as Grenoble, since you say it is taught by the same staff, but when you go for an MBA, you are also paying for the brand name and reputation. so i still say, one should definitetly choose Grenoble over wales.

Hello there,

Depends on the country you are in. Here in the UK, a university can award its own degrees and has a charter giving it various guarantees of independence. A college usually depends on a fully-fledged university validating its degrees, or may even be part of a university, as in Oxford or Cambridge colleges. Or a college may be little to do with degree-level education at all, such as a Further Education college.

The only "official" answer you can get are accreditations + rankings.

LSBF does not have any major accreditations (AACSB, Equis, Amba) and is not ranked in any major ranking (FT, Economist, Businessweek).

I have my own example.In May 2010 i was offered a seat in LSBF because GGSB in Grenoble was already full.I enquired a lot abt LSBF from current people who r studyin and also who have left.
They didnt gave a good response.Few of the main reasons were:
1)Administration of college is not good.
2)Fees is on higher side.
3)Not all staff of GGSB grenoble teaches in LSBF.
4)No support for Campus recruitement..

I have also created a group in Facebook for GGSB MBA 2011 intakes..we discuss this more there as well.

I recommend to learn the correct names of those schools before you apply. Oxford Brookes is a former polytechnic. I would still prefer it to LSBF as it has the AMBA accreditation. Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB) is a good business school (much better than the other two mentioned), but you should study in Grenoble to benefit from the quality of its program.

Hi sassan,

I can not say anything about the IBC as I never heard of them before. But you have to be aware that the Middlesex University is just validating the degree, the content will be delivered by the IBC. It is the same model which was used by the University of Wales as a degree validating institution. This lead to so much abuse that they cancelled it. So even if Midddlesex is a solid UK institution, it is no guarantee for the quality of the degree.

RGU is a normal Scottish university and might have closer connection to the industry due to its proximity to the UK - oil fields.

UoL offers distance learning and the name of the university might be more recognized from a global perspective.

Where are you located? Do you know people working in this field that might be able to offer you advice?

I almost made a mistake of trying to see what LSBF has to offer. I contacted the campus to learn about their program and was given a personal advisor who responded to my queries very promptly until I inquired who validates and accredits the degrees. He mentioned it was the University of Wales. I knew from my googling around that the University of Wales has been abolished (Oct 2011) due to numerous scandals and have effectively withdrawn all its accreditations!!! I asked him what happens now, and lo and behold, the silence treatment!! Beware - before its too late!!!

Hi sassan, I can not say anything about the IBC as I never heard of them before. But you have to be aware that the Middlesex University is just validating the degree, the content will be delivered by the IBC.


Sassan and Sweetowski, sorry buy you are very incorrect here. I've spoken to Middlesex University and the course is validated and delivered by them. They are working with IBC to bring commercial oil and gas focus to the course as well as the usal academic content, so to me it sound a lot better than many other oil gas mba providers who are only academic. I've taken some of IBC other oil and gas course via my company and really really good. My company is looking to sponsor some people on the MBA due to the reputation IBC have for quality and they think better than others. Have a look at IBC as well their address is www.ibc-academy.com . You should be careful to get fact right! Steve

That is true, have to apologize here. Don't remember how it looked like 3 months ago, but maybe I just overlooked the big "delivered and validated by Middlesex University".

The London School of Business and Finance Global MBA now has validation. After the closure of the University of Wales it's now offering the London Met MBA (http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/pgprospectus/courses/master-of-business-administration.cfm) at a 17% premium (http://www.lsbf.org.uk/students/fees-funding.html).

LSBF has greater marketing resources, of course. But which folk here would rather study at London Met rather than at LSBF?
