Our History

GBS began in 2010 as a specialist training centre for finance and investment banking, offering courses to students from around the world. Over the last 11 years, we’ve evolved and grown so we can offer more qualifications to even more students.

In 2016, we opened our first campus, in London’s iconic East End and that’s what shaped the institution we are today. As one of the city’s most economically deprived areas, we quickly realised we could improve communities by reaching those from backgrounds where traditional university wasn’t an option.

We partnered with several UK universities who shared our vision, allowing us to add other academic disciplines to our portfolio. As well as continuing to offer finance and banking courses, we now have business management and healthcare programmes providing even more opportunity for our students.

Fast-forward to 2021 and we have almost 20,000 students studying at campuses in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Dubai and Malta.

Vision and values

At GBS, our students are at the heart of everything we do because we know education is transformational. Our job is to create access to learning for everyone, regardless of background or circumstances, because this is how we change lives.

Studying with us is about so much more than gaining a qualification. We care about personal growth and we’re here to make a significant contribution to our communities through better opportunities and employment prospects for all who join the GBS family.

Changing one life at a time through transformational education can and will inspire others to want a better future for themselves. As new businesses are started and promotions are earned, confidence grows turning goals into reality. Every student, one by one, is contributing to the change the world needs to see. And that’s why we do what we do.
