ISBF & The London School of Economics

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is ranked #2 in the world for the Social Sciences, 4th for Accounting and Finance, 5th for Economics and Econometrics & 10th for Business and Management by QS in 2020.

LSE provides academic direction for the Economics, Management, Finance & Social Science programmes taught at ISBF.

Degree Recognition

The undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded at ISBF are internationally recognised degrees awarded by the University of London. The final degree includes the University of London logo and signature of the Vice Chancellor, and indicates London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) as the lead college.

However, since some Indian colleges and government job applications may insist on a UGC recognised undergraduate degree, ISBF offers all undergraduate students the option to enrol for a UGC-recognised degree programme with IGNOU.
