DMU signs partnership with Oxford’s oldest business college

Students at Oxford’s oldest business college will be able to study Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) undergraduate and postgraduate courses, thanks to a new partnership.

LCBS, part of De Montfort University Leicester (DMU), has signed an agreement with Oxford Business College (OBC), which will have benefits for students at both institutions.

Key staff from both institutions attended a ceremony on DMU’s campus to sign a Memorandum of Understanding – the first step in the union.

DMU’s Professor Dana Brown, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Enterprise), said: “I am delighted to work with OBC to develop and offer our portfolio in partnership.

“I am particularly impressed by OBC’s ethos of personalised student support that will resonate well with DMU.”

Dr Gerry Takamura, Principal of Oxford Business College, said: “We admire DMU’s teaching excellence position and value its social inclusion agenda.

“This partnership will enhance our reputation and educational portfolio internationally.”

Professor Khalid Hafeez, Associate Dean for DMU’s Faculty of Business and Law, added: “This partnership will benefit both institutions to offer high-quality education to students while relying on the locations and resources of the two institutions.”
