Programme overview

The MSc Economics and Management programme is specialist multidisciplinary degree delivered jointly by the Department of Management and the Department of Economics - one of the largest and most esteemed Economics departments in the world, renowned for its research and contributions to the development of the subject area. The programme is taught and directed by our world-leading faculty Professor John Sutton and Professor Luis Garicano – two of the most eminent economists in their fields.

The programme is aimed at students with a strong analytical and quantitative background, and provides a key combination of an applied focus on Economics at master's level with analytical courses in the field of Management.

We are unique in comparison to programmes offered by other universities and business schools (including the typical MBA programme), as our programme combines the exceptional level of analytical training provided within the LSE’s globally top ranking MSc Economics with the more applied scope and coverage characteristic of Master’s degrees in the field of Management.

The core curriculum focuses on an understanding of firms’ market strategies, exploring the management of firms, and the economic climate of the markets in which they operate. Students will also gain an in-depth understanding of econometric methods and their applications, covering new developments in the use of econometrics methods within organisations and industry.

This programme will provide you with an exceptional foundation to progress either to PhD-level study or to employment opportunities in industry, finance or consulting.
