LCA Business School forms part of one of the UK's top private-sector higher education institutions. Offering a range of courses leading to academic and professional qualifications, LCA has been highly effective in helping students achieve successful careers in business, management and accountancy since it was founded in 2000. LCA’s ethos is simple: to provide highly competitively priced, top quality business education geared to the contemporary student’s need for quality as well as the employer’s need for direct relevance. With classes timetabled to optimise the chance of meaningful part-time work; lecturers with first-hand experience of business; and low tuition fees; LCA offers a quality alternative to the more traditional university. Students also benefit from the learning environment of a professional business school. Currently home to some 2000 students from all over the world, LCA launched a portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in 2007, building on from its success in preparing students for professional accountancy examinations. LCA has twice won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recent years. With state of the art facilities in the heart of central London, LCA Business School boasts a large dedicated team of academic and administrative staff. In 2012 the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) conducted a review of LCA Business School and declared it had confidence in how LCA manages its stated responsibilities for the standards of the awards it offers and for the quality and enhancement of the learning opportunities if offers on behalf of its awarding bodies.
