Academic Partnerships

The Academic Partnerships Office is responsible for developing and supporting LSE's efforts to cooperate with a small number of high-quality universities across the world. LSE's approach to cooperation with other institutions is normally with the following objectives in mind:

  1. To maintain and raise LSE’s profile by our association with leading institutions in globally relevant locations (including in support of recruitment efforts there);

  2. To broaden the School’s academic portfolio through teaching (including dual/double degrees and jointly branded summer schools), which in turn creates innovative opportunities for prospective students who are seeking to prepare themselves for an increasingly globalised jobs market;

  3. To extend our range of expertise and promote collaborative world-class research that deals with real problems and issues of relevance to both LSE’s and its partners’ host societies and more widely;

  4. To promote relations with corporate partners and policymakers and other non-academic users of research around the world (including as prospective employers of LSE graduates); and

  5. To promote alumni relations and fundraising efforts.

As such, we maintain a very limited number of 'institutional' partnerships and a similarly limited number of exchange partnerships for student and staff mobility. LSE chooses to cooperate only with universities that are known to share its high standards and public position.
