Research


LSE Consulting works across all sectors and disciplines within the School's departments and research centres. We have access to unique intellectual resources drawn from specialists with outstanding reputations in academia and policy research.

We conduct qualitative and quantitative research - from literature reviews, stakeholder interviews or surveys to statistical modelling

Research areas

LSE Consulting provides rigorous evidence-based analysis to produce studies, impact assessments, and evaluations across the research areas of the School. We deliver projects on these topics with strong engagement of LSE academics, policy impact and sound institutional capacity.

As part of our long-term vision to develop in-depth engagement across the LSE, but also with external collaborators, we have developed three Consulting Hubs over the past years: Health, Education, and Trade. The three areas highlight the potential scope for collaboration between academic institutions, policy makers, and citizens to enable social change in a variety of ways and attempt to realise our goal of a better society.

Methodologies and outputs

Our consultants are highly experienced in qualitative as well as quantitative research methodologies – from literature reviews, stakeholder interviews or surveys to statistical modelling. These methodologies include:

Evidence & systematic reviews

LSE Consulting follows international standards and methodologies to conduct systematic reviews. We provide a comprehensive and exhaustive review of the relevant literature to assess the impact of the evidence.

Policy research

LSE experts analyse the implementation, development and effects of policy changes across different contexts. Comparing and contrasting regulations already present in other countries allows us to review accepted perceptions and help our clients maximise the impact of their policy decisions.

Socio-economic analysis

LSE experts apply social science research to contemporary issues faced by organisations. By broadening the boundaries of interdisciplinary thinking, we help our clients to quantify uncertainties and measure outcomes using proven techniques and methodologies.

Corporate & industry analysis

LSE experts conduct broad analysis of corporate and industry dynamics and deliver practical recommendations that are responsive to changing market needs. The rich industry expertise and experience of our consultants bring exceptional insight to our clients’ corporate challenges.

Evaluation & impact studies

Using diagnostic tools, LSE experts can measure outcomes which allow our clients to identify opportunities for improvement and achieve practices which are sustainable and transferable.

Events & conferences

LSE Consulting designs and delivers bespoke events tailored to individual clients, from simple presentations to inspiring conferences. We use our unique location and knowledge to organise effective and innovative events that serve the dynamic and complex worlds our clients operate within.
