English language requirements
Personal statement requirements:
All students of the MSc International Management Exchange programme spend a term abroad at one of our6 partner schools. Please list ALL the schools in order of your preference, with 1 being the school you would most like to spend your term abroad at, within your personal statement. We will take your choices in to account as much as possible when allocating places at our partner schools, but we are unfortunately unable to guarantee all students their top choices.
The programme is theoretical and analytical and you need to be able to demonstrate your quantitative skills by having gained high grades in courses which have covered areas such as maths and statistics. Your undergraduate Bachelor's degree should have included some management and economics related courses.
You need a minimum of 3 months' work experience (e.g. an internship), as you will be studying alongside MBA students during the IMEX exchange term who will have a minimum of 3 years work experience (or often more). We realise that you will not have a great deal of work experience but at least one good quality internship is required.
Your application should include a personal statement showing your motivation to achieve an MSc in International Management from LSE whilst undertaking the challenge of spending a term abroad attached to an MBA programme, a style of study which is entirely different to what we offer at LSE. Please list ALL partner schools in order of preference, with 1 being the school you would most like to spend your term abroad at. Your application should also include a GRE or GMAT score and two academic references.
Your application will be considered on its academic merits. An offer of a place may be conditional on attending additional courses and/or passing qualifying examinations at a suitable standard, in addition to your degree. You should note that there are always many more applications than places available and achieving the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee that you will be offered admission. It is therefore in your interest to apply as early as possible.
Submit an application to the LSE Graduate Admissions Office:
Applications are open from 20 October 2014 for entry to the programme in Autumn 2015. We operate rolling admissions so we don’t have a closing date. However, we offer places on a first-come, first-served basis, and places on the programme are likely to fill by around Easter, so we encourage you to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Our admissions process is managed centrally, so please visit the LSE Graduate Admissions Office web pages for queries about the application process and requirements.
