Programme overview

The MSc International Management is a one-year programme emphasising an analytical approach to issues of globalisation and international management, through a unique combination of theoretical and practical teaching styles and international learning.

During the first term the programme provides a highly analytical approach to management founded in the LSE’s tradition of critical thinking. 

In the second term students take part in the International Management Exchange programme (IMEX), studying as guests in the second year of an MBA programme at a leading business school in the US or China, with a more practical teaching approach. 

These two terms allow you to benefit from the two different teaching approaches, which in combination provide a uniquely valuable and globally-relevant learning experience.

The core course in the MSc International Management programme focuses on an analytical approach to globalisation, giving you an understanding of industries, firms and nations at a global level.

The programme provides a firm foundation of critical thinking and analytically rigorous understanding of management at a global level, developing your talent to achieve lasting success over a lifelong career in a rapidly changing international market.   

IMEX exchange term

Six world-leading business schools partner with the LSE in the IMEX programme, and students will study at one of these schools throughout the second term of their programme:

Key features of the programme
