Dr Nnamdi Obiosa

I became the Head of the School of Accounting and Finance in January 2023 having joined Bloomsbury Institute in September 2021 as Deputy Head of the School of Business and Accounting. Prior to that, I was Subject Cluster Head – Economics, Accounting & Finance at Regent’s University London.

I hold an earned doctorate degree in Banking and Finance. I am a CIMA Qualified Chartered Accountant and Chartered Global Management Accountant, and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I am a seasoned financial practitioner and senior academic with many years’ of experience. My experience ranges from investment activities to financial markets, financing activities to financial performance reviews. I have been at the forefront of re-engineering financial processes and developing financial management capability through superior system functionality and transformational budgeting.

I bring the knowledge gained in practice to my teaching activities. I have successfully managed academic programmes and departments with responsibility for the development of programmes and line managing academic staff. I engage in wider professional partnerships with professional colleagues in commerce and industry, which helps me to remain current in the finance and accounting field. I have also successfully supervised first degree, master’s degree, and doctoral degree students to completion as well as examined doctoral students.


Have research and scholarly interest in Financial Markets, Financial Management, Financial Risk Management, Financial and Management Accounting. Have pedagogic interests in the enhancement of students’ learning experience and assessment practices. I am also a keen sportsperson with interests in football and athletics.
