MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions Class of 2012
"As the end of the Lent Term approaches, I feel very confident to say that my whole academic experience as a postgraduate in LSE and in our Department in particular, has been one of the most fruitful and challenging experiences I have ever had. The AOI programme provided me both with a complete package of modules that I could choose from the Department of Accounting, as well as with the freedom to structure my own curriculum with courses from other Departments, a fact that leads to 'cognitive synergies' and valuable complementarities. I have already recommended my MSc to people that, even if they are not attracted by the traditional impression they had about Accounting as a science and as an academic subject (just like I did), they soon change their minds one hundred percent when I tell them more about the programme and its philosophy."
Angeliki Chatzilia (MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions, Class of 2012)
"The AOI curriculum is multi-disciplinary and readily applicable to issues concerning the recontextualization of accounting and regulatory frameworks in the aftermath of the crisis. The best part about the programme is the intellectual freedom to research questions related to accounting against diverse interfaces and perspectives which is extremely fascinating. The course really makes one question assumptions about public policies for accounting transparency, organisational strategies for improving efficiency; things which I used to take as given until a year back. The syllabus is quite rigorous for students transitioning to accounting from other fields but the faculty are very helpful and approachable making the transition easier and interesting."

"The MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions programme at the LSE is not your run of the mill Accounting Programme. Where at one time I naively believed that Accounting predominantly focused on the churning out of financial statements, the MSc programme has challenged me to look beyond what is conventionally accepted. I have had the opportunity, through exposure to a rich diversity of academic perspectives, to explore how society's perception of corporations or public sector services or even regulation is influenced or shaped by evolving notions in the field of Accounting."
Nadine Ramrattan (MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions, Class of 2012)
"Accounting is such an interesting subject. I really thank the Department for giving me the opportunity to pursue new knowledge and for making me a person who thinks and challenges knowledge. It is a new set of skills I gained from LSE, and I certainly believe that it will help me in my career as a government servant and for the better of my country."
