We believe the Business Management Degree at London South Bank University (LSBU) is a good choice for building a career in business. These apprenticeships typically take 4 years, and you receive a BA (Hons) degree on successful completion.

You do not need to pay for any training costs and therefore this is an excellent way to get a degree for free. See details here:
