    Lionel Bunting says

    London is renown as a global hub of business and finance, and its truly a remarkable place to study the subject and see how it works all around you.

    As a global hub, London continues to attract businesses and staff making the city a very diverse place, and of course that means that our academics have knowledge and experiences from around the world which adds to the richness and depth of examples, knowledge and wisdom shared with our equally diverse student body.

    Students will build English language skills and proficiency from the home of the English language, as well as getting an understanding of colloquialisms, regional accents and all of the nonverbal communications within each cultural context.

    The UK is a major global economy and home to world class education providers, businesses, sporting facilities, food, drink, culture, environment, tourist attractions and much more. London continues to be one of the best capitals for just about everything and is a melting pot of cultures, food and languages making it an amazingly vibrant and diverse place to study.

    Students at London Metropolitan University are a short walk to areas such as Angel and Shoreditch or a tube ride away from the beating heart of Soho and theatreland, few other universities have so much to offer on their doorstep.

    Learning does not only take place in the classroom, gaining experiences, meeting people, learning about how the city's economy really works are some of the added benefits of studying here.

    Business and finance is all around us, whichever country you come from, or wherever you go on to work, studying business management and finance will provide you with a solid foundation for your career progression.

    This is perhaps the most sought after subject areas and is prevalent in all industry sectors. Some students go onto complete a postgraduate program in a highly specialist subject or different area altogether using business and finance as their foundations.

    Graduates from the UK are highly sought after the world over and with the added English and cultural skills and knowledge acquired, you will certainly have a great deal to offer any employer. Graduates from London Metropolitan University have gone on to achieve great things, not just here in the UK but all over the world.
