Our faculty have designed this unique MSc programme to provide an optimum balance between rigorous academic analysis and real-world practice. We offer more academic depth than a traditional MBA, but more real-world application and teamwork than a PhD. Rather than simply teaching our students how to apply current management tools, our students learn to be innovative critical thinkers with the talent to apply their learning to the fast-changing world of management across a lifelong career.
7 classroom teaching modules (1-2 weeks in duration) over a 17 month period:

Five modules will take place on our campus here in the heart of London, and you will join the LSE’s tradition of academic debate and cosmopolitan campus community. There is always a huge range of activities and events to choose from while you are here, including our high-profile public lecture and events series, as well as a taste of London life with culture, history, art, music, business and government on your doorstep.
The remaining two modules will take place in Singapore and Istanbul, giving an insight into global diversity in management practice and culture.
In between modules students will continue to live and work in their current locations across the world, and have access to a learning technology platform which will complement the in-class sessions and maximise intersession communication.
The curriculum has been developed by our world-leading faculty to take a globally-focused and interdisciplinary approach to learning. Our students continue to work full-time whilst studying, and the academic courses are designed to enable students to bring learning from the classroom back to their workplace throughout the programme.
Your talent will be developed through an in-depth and academically rigorous approach to concepts across the key areas of management. You will learn to take a broader view of organisations and markets through a global lens, and develop an in-depth understanding of the interactions between the range of key disciplines in management.

Three non-assessed elements will be scheduled throughout the programme to complement the assessed courses above:
