Vision

Our vision is to create a better world where a profound understanding of management drives positive change in business and society.

Mission

Our mission is to inform and inspire better management in practice by challenging and extending the understanding of people, teams, organisations and markets, and the economic, psychological, social, political and technological contexts in which they operate worldwide.

From our setting in a world-class social science institution at the heart of a leading global city, we achieve our mission by producing original and robust research insights, and delivering high-quality, evidence-based education.

We are proud to be part of LSE, an institution that ranks #2 in the world for social sciences and management (QS World University Rankings 2016-17) and #1 in the UK for research in business and management studies (REF 2014).

We engage with people and organisations worldwide, across the private, public, and third sectors, who are motivated to improve the world through better understanding and practice of management.

The LSE advantage
