London College of International Business Studies (LCIBS)
Established against a backdrop of unprecedented economic growth, the Pitman Central College (PCC) was founded by visionary educator, Sir Isaac Pitman, in 1870 in response to a growing need for business-minded leaders.
Designed to bridge the skills gap, the College empowered generations of workers for more than 120 years with the skills and entrepreneurial instincts necessary to drive today’s powerful global economy.
In 1990, however, a new chapter began when the Pitman Central College was acquired by CRT plc who grew the business training college into what it is today – a globally respected institution of excellence that is proudly known as the London College of International Business Studies.
As we advance into the future, we’re excited by the opportunity to shape the thinking of a new generation of global business leaders.
Our long term vision, in concert with viable partnerships, is to become a leading international provider of quality higher education and executive training.
Our mission is to deliver high-quality education and training that will make a proactive difference to both the individual student’s life and their wider communities and national economies.
