The first class to study BA Business Studies at LSBU then known as South Bank Polytechnic reunited to mark 40 years since graduating.
The reunion was held in the Windsor Castle near Victoria, an old haunt for the cohort of 12 until they had the idea of opening a bar on campus. Using their entrepreneurial flair and legal knowledge they proposed that a student bar open on campus. This proposal was granted and the first student bar on Francis Street was opened in the cohorts second year of study.
Current Economics Lecturer Peter Luke welcomed the class and the cohort has very kindly offered to support current Business Studies students through guest lecturing.
Frank Brunger who went on to work for companies Warner Music International and CBS records (now known as Sony Music) commented on the evening and his time at LSBU “I obviously thoroughly enjoyed the evening… I have incredibly fond memories of those years and the friendships we made and tremendous respect for many of our lecturers who were pioneers of the Course.”
Mick Jarvis, LSBU alumnus and Court Member said- “It was great to see everyone again, all with fond memories of South Bank. Whatever the reasons we all went to do Business Studies at South Bank, I didn’t find anyone who regretted doing so”.
