Guildhall School of Business and Law secure partnership with school in Barcelona

The partnership will see Sant Cugat Escola Superior de Negocis deliver the Business Management BA course to London Met students in Spain.

Date: 08 March 2021

London Met is continuing to form partnerships with educational institutions both domestic and abroad. Most recently, the Guildhall School of Business and Law (GSBL) celebrated another successful institutional and course validation event and has added a new partnership with a School in Barcelona, Spain to its collaborations portfolio.

Sant Cugat Escola Superior de Negocis (ESN) will be delivering the Business Management BA course in Spanish to London Met students in Spain. GSBL is experienced in such collaborations, especially as it has another collaborative partnership in the Spanish city of Santander, which teaches London Met courses either in English or in Spanish.

Dr Ron Cambridge, GSBL Head of Collaborative Partnerships, said: "The School is very proud to have our Business courses nationally and internationally recognised. It was a real pleasure to e-meet with the fantastic team at ESN and we are looking forward to start delivering our courses there. This is a great cause for celebration as the GSBL Collaborative Partnerships continues to grow even during the Covid travel restrictions.

"ESN being able to offer London Met courses in the local language contributes to the University’s endeavours to decolonise the curriculum, as part of the University Education for Social Justice Framework. We now have the opportunity to work together with another international partner and draw on the strengths of both organisations in order to provide the best student experience and academic support for our students."

These collaborative partnerships are of significant importance, especially now that international travel has been halted due to the current pandemic, as they allow London Met to grow its learning community and provide high-level education that is relevant to the local context.
