Academic community

The Academic Community is the intellectual capital of The London Institute of Banking & Finance and consists of a unique cluster of academics and industry professionals who develop and disseminate impactful thought leadership and deliver innovative education and training of banking and finance subjects.

Our leading edge derives from active participation in a wider banking and finance community through a combination of employment, consulting, involvement in professional organisations, scholarly writing, and joining government forums, which contribute to the advancement of thought leadership and inform policy in their specialist fields.

Our higher education programmes are delivered in small lectures introducing theory and supported with illustrations of practice. This is fundamental to our academic community adding personal and practical experience to texts, readings and preparations helping our students frame the business and market questions of tomorrow.
