New Delhi, March 08, 2021: The New Delhi-based Indian School of Business and Finance (ISBF) has announced that the first round of applications for its BSc (Hons) Business Management programme, that it offers in partnership with UK-based Kingston University (KU), is set to close on 13 March 2021 for the academic year 2021-22. ISBF last year partnered with Kingston University (KU), London, one of the top 50 business schools in the United Kingdom (according to The Guardian University Guide 2020), to bring to aspiring Indian students its acclaimed Business Management programme, at less than half the cost of pursuing it entirely in London.
This programme offers students the unique opportunity to undertake the first 2 years of this degree in India at ISBF, and then move to Kingston University for the 3rd year and graduate in London, thus gliding over the health and financial risks of living abroad this year and still gaining an international education with the certainty of graduating abroad.
Throughout the programme, all students are full-fledged Kingston University students, with the curriculum and the final degree, both, also coming entirely from Kingston University.
For the last 15 years, Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF) has been successfully delivering excellence in international education through some of the world’s leading programmes in Economics, Management and Finance, under the aegis of a strong partnership with the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE) and the University of London (UOL). The new partnership with Kingston University is a natural extension of this endeavour to bring world-class education to India, providing Indian students with access to a high-quality global UG programmes at a fraction of the cost.
Students of this programme enjoy the same work and visa-related benefits as other international students (who may have studied in the UK for all 3 years at a much higher cost), including post-study 2-year work visa, depending on UK Government regulations. This allows graduates to launch a career in London, one of the world’s leading cities to live and work in. Moreover, students may also opt for a year of work placement in their fourth year, the successful completion of which adds “with Business Experience” to their degree title.
