Founded in 1974 by two brothers, one an entrepreneur, the other the Dean of the Faculty of Management and Policy Sciences at Aston University, the history of the College is one of educational innovation and entrepreneurship. An important part of the mission of the College has been to play an active role in the development of independent higher education. One way we do this is through building our relationships and actively contributing as members of bodies from across the sector, including GuildHE, HEFCE Strategic Advisory Committees, and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education.
As an organisation dedicated to the regeneration of its communities through progressive and innovative higher education, we remain a dynamic contributor to the London and national higher education landscape, as we have been for over 40 years.
GSM London is genuinely inclusive, helping students to realise their aspirations whatever their situation. We encourage them to have bold dreams, and we focus on employability from day one. We currently have around 7,000 students studying for a range of business-related degrees. Our diverse student body comes from local communities in Greenwich and Greenford, and we have also attracted a strong following from many overseas markets such as the Gulf States, Nigeria, and the Far East as well as Europe.
