East Midlands School of Business and Management (ESBM) was founded in 2009 and has grown over the years into an independent education provider operating in the heart of Leicester city, the centre of England, one of the UK’s most culturally diverse cities. We specialise in providing business and management courses to our UK and international students as well as a wide range of English courses for students of different ages and levels of English. ESBM is a skill-funding member under the UK Register of Learning Provider (UKPRN). ESBM courses are approved by the UK state education systems, through the Independent Schools Inspectorate, ATHE qualifications, Ofqual regulation, Edexcel examination board, and the UK Border Agency, which allows ESBM an official Tier-4 visa sponsor by the UK government. At ESBM we welcome students from all over the world. We aim to encourage their development as an individual while helping them to secure their academic and career path.
ESBM provides direct entry foundation courses as a pathway to De Montfort University (DMU). Students can study all subjects with ESBM for direct entry foundation course. The UK Department of Education awarded De Montfort University (DMU) a ‘Gold’ rating in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework, describing teaching as being “consistently outstanding” and “of the highest quality found in the UK Higher Education sector”. De Montfort University (DMU) has one of the largest numbers of Teacher Fellows of any UK university and was awarded Centre of Excellence status for its performance practice teaching and student support. This award has enabled further investment in research as well as the construction of a new building with performance studios and rehearsal areas.
