  Everybody agrees that we enter a knowledge-based society, to stress the fact
  that the most valuable asset is investment in intangible, human and social capital
  and that the key factors are knowledge and creativity.

  This new context makes the statement of Derek Bok (Harvard University President):
  "if you think training is expensive... try ignorance", more accurate.

  At LABS, we think that this new society presents great opportunities and that
  education should be put at the heart of economic development policy since
  knowledge will always add value.

  At LABS, our corporate seminars, our higher education sessions and our technical
  training are all designed to tackle the most relevant topics and to equip our
  students with the latest technologies.

  At LABS, we are committed to our students and we help people to get their best
  achievements in a friendly and relaxing environment.

  At LABS, we sincerely think that your achievement is priceless for the
  knowledge society.                                                                      REGISTRAR’S COMMENT

  The London Academy Business School as its vision recognises its highest
  goal to be the development of intellect and character building. As such
  what set London Academy Business School apart from others is that
  we demand that our students make contributions far larger than they could
  have hoped when they commenced.

  Our purpose in this enterprise is to prepare leaders of conscience for the
  next century, whether our graduates' aspirations are global or local. We
  understand this to be the paramount charge and responsibility of the
  Business School.

  London Academy Business School commits its energies and resources to
  becoming an academic home in the truest sense. Our community educates
  students from a rich diversity of backgrounds who are committed to advancing
  their lives and the lives of others through hard work, high standards
  and service. Thus, the "academic home" which this Academy embraces and
  must nurture is a secure and supportive place of learning, one which offers
  an educational environment of clear standards, high expectations, and a
  predisposition to challenge students to achieve their utmost.

  Our challenge is to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to
  narrow the distance between our ideal vision of the Academy and the reality
  of the highly complex and competitive world that exists.

  We prepare leaders of conscience by guiding students through a demanding
  curriculum, always seeking, as an academic home, to support and to stretch
  the development of intellect and character.

  As an academic home, we are a dwelling place of good books, good teachers,
                                                                                           OUR VISION

  good students and good technology. These defining features are apparent
  in each of our programs, our facilities and in our physical layout. In the
  end, we live our vision fully: to produce the highest quality of academic
  achievement and a new generation of leaders for our communities.

                    The Mission of London Academy Business School as an independent
                    educational institute is to provide total education solutions to students.
                    In order that they gain the highest quality of education. We offer diploma,
                    undergraduate and postgraduate education in Accountancy, Business
                    Management, Information Technology, Health and Social Care, Language
                    and teacher Training to people from all backgrounds from all nationalities.

                    The London Academy Business School in its mission incorporates: To
                    coach, mentor and provide tutor-led training and quality support to enable
                    people to learn more effectively. Thus the teaching is shaped by a view
                    of education as a process of awakening the "teacher within", so that our
                    students will become lifelong learners.

                    Our purpose in this enterprise is to prepare leaders of conscience and hence
                    students at London Academy Business School are encouraged to be
                    vibrant, active and involved learners. The Academy provides extensive
                    opportunities for students and faculty to interact with each other as persons,
                    to learn from each other in a cooperative community, an important aspect of

                    which is collaborative student/ faculty research.

                    We also help to develop business minded persons by equipping them with the
                    best business skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to gain a sustainable
                    advantage in today's competitive world. The education is carried on with a
                    concern for the world in which we love and for improving human society. The
                    Academy thus strives to educate morally sensitive leaders for future
                    generations stressing the need for global education, peaceful resolution of
                    conflict, equality of persons and high moral standards of personal conduct.

                      Course Overview: Consolidated supervision is an essential tool of banking
                      supervision. It signifies a comprehensive approach to banking supervision
                      which seeks to evaluate the strength of an entire group, taking into account
                      all the risks which may affect a bank, regardless of whether these risks are
                      carried in the books of the bank or related entities. Most developed countries
                      now have laws and regulations to ensure that the banks they have licensed
                      can be supervised on a consolidated basis. Against a background of growing
                      international encouragement to countries to practice consolidated supervision
                      of banks, the purpose of this training course is to assist policy-makers and
                      bank supervisors by explaining the intrinsic merits of consolidated supervision
                      and the techniques through which it can be implemented

 Course Overview: Bank supervision is responsible for the care of the financial
 system’s health, effected through on and off site inspections of the banking and
 non-banking financial institutions authorised to operate in the territory.

 Among others, bank supervision has also the function of analysing requests for
 licenses to operate as financial institutions in the territory. To this purpose, there
 is a commission, presided by the Superintendent and integrated by the directors
 of Monetary Policy, Operations and the Legal Department who are in charge of
 the analysis of requests and submission of an opinion to the Board of CBN for
 a final decision on the granting of the said license.

 Course Outline:
   * Preconditions for an effective bank supervision.
   * Granting of licenses and structure.
   * Prudential rules and requirements.
   * Methods for a progressive bank supervision.

                      Course Overview: The objective of this workshop is to cover the key theoretical
                      aspects of credit risk and credit derivatives along with practical application and
                      modelling techniques.

                      Not only will you gain a deeper understanding of the principles of a range of
                      credit risk models and major credit derivatives but also their pricing structure,
                      methodologies and implementation.

                      Delegates are assumed to have a working knowledge of credit risk markets
                      as well as some basic mathematical finance.

                      The workshop will be very hands-on and intensive building on the basics
                      through to some advanced credit modelling, simulation and implementation
                       techniques with a degree of in-depth mathematical analysis.

                      Hence, it should be useful for the bright quantitative junior newcomer to the
                      financial markets as well as the more experienced professionals who want

 Course Overview: It is extremely important that investigations are intelligence
 led. But how do you know that the information you receive is good intelligence?
 You’ll be looking to find a system that will tell you clearly how good your
 information is. It needs to assess the quality of the source and the information
 using a national standard method. It must also make sure that the intelligence
 is kept secure and not disseminated unless it’s safe.
 You’ll also need to assess the risk that the information poses to your
 organisation and what to do about that..

 Course Outline:
 To know how to analyse incoming intelligence

 To understand the risk scoring process

 To know how to select a case for investigation and ‘fast track’
 sanction cases

                      Course Overview: Every day stocks, bonds and currencies bounce wildly
                      in response to new economic indicators. Money managers obsess over

                      economy and the financial markets. This course, based on the instructor's
                      popular book entitled The Secrets of Economic Indicators published by
                      Wharton School Publishing, examines the hidden clues to future economic
                      trends and how to use the information for investment opportunities.

 with changes in interest rates, stock prices, commodity prices, inflation etc.

 This course defines the main kind of derivatives, shows how they are used
 to achieve various hedging and speculating objectives, introduces a framework
 for pricing derivatives and studies several applications of derivative-pricing
 techniques outside derivative markets. The main topics covered are
 * Pricing derivatives: no arbitrage and the law of one price;
 * Forwards, futures and swaps - pricing and applications;
 * Options - Pricing and applications. Both European and American style
 options are studied, in the context of the binomial model as well as in that
 of the Black-Scholes model.
 * Further applications: real options, corporate securities.

                      Course Overview: In this age of tight resources, supervisors need to be
                      able to count on good work from both employees they supervise directly
                      and those they don't. This dynamic training program is designed for
                      managers who delegate to traditional teams and for those who supervise
                      blended teams whose members include direct reports, tricky dotted- line
                      reports, "temporary loans," and virtual teams. Through hands-on activities
                      and practice exercises, participants will learn how to better focus on the
                       fundamental components of delegating effectively, setting goals, giving
                      performance feedback, and providing growth opportunities.

                      Course Objectives
                      At the program's conclusion, participants should be able to:

                        * Recognize their strengths and growth opportunities as managers.
                        * Recognize the four behavioral styles and how to coach each.

                      Course Overview: Analyzing a financial institution is very different from
                      analyzing a corporate entity. When a financial institution has liquidity
                      problems, the end can be fast and furious. This course will cover the
                      qualitative and quantitative analysis of financial institutions. Exercises
                      and case studies are included.

 Course Overview: Commercial Real estate appraisal, property valuation
 or land valuation is the practice of developing an opinion of the value of
 real property, usually its Market Value. The need for appraisals arises
 from the heterogeneous nature of property as an investment class: no
 two properties are identical, and all properties differ from each other in
 their location - which is one of the most important determinants of their
 value. So there cannot exist a centralized Walrasian auction setting for
 the trading of property assets, as there exists for trade in corporate stock.
 The absence of a market-based pricing mechanism determines the need
 for an expert appraisal/valuation of real estate/property.

                      Course Overview: This course offers strategic and tactical insights on
                      how to operate in the re-shaped commercial and residential real estate
                      lending landscape. Case studies, checklists, and valuable resources will
                      supplement the valuable sessions on a broad range of topics.

                      At the end of this course, you will:
                         * Identify the reforms of the mortgage lending laws that will affect your
                           operations. Receive practical guidance and solutions on managing
                           new disclosures . . .to complying with new accounting and capital
                           treatments for troubled debt . . . to putting into practice new underwriting,
                           appraisal, and loan modification guidelines . . . and learn how they will
                           reshape your job and lending operations.
                         * Recognize how to manage risk today. As battered banks re-establish
                           capital and confidence, hear case studies, expert analyses, and data-driven
                           insights on how to build operational efficiencies and manage the tough new
                           tolerances banks must abide by today.
                         * Capture new business opportunity ideas. Get fresh insights on how your
                           lending products can succeed—even with tighter underwriting, appraisal,
                           and investor requirements.
                         * Share ideas with peers. Validate your ideas and hear new ones from lenders
                           facing the same thorny issues as you--from accounting for distressed
                           properties to managing new disclosure requirements to rethinking traditional
                           underwriting rules.
                         * Visit industry partners that support your lending operations. Save time and
                           expense when you meet with loan servicers, title companies, appraisers,
                           mortgage insurers, secondary marketing agencies, technology consultants,

                           and other industry suppliers — all in one convenient location.

  Course Overview: A business communication training course can help a
  company's employees express their ideas clearly and effectively. Improved
  communication skills benefit the employees—who are empowered by their
  ability to better get their points across—as well as the company, which wants
  to get the most from its employees' knowledge and talents. A business
  communication training course can be a particularly attractive option,
  compared to a classroom-based course. A business communication training
  course can cost substantially less than a classroom-based business
  communication training course, can fit more easily within busy and
  unpredictable work schedules, and can be delivered in a consistent manner
  across even the largest and most dispersed enterprises..
