Programme overview

This challenging and highly distinctive one-year programme offers a rigorous interdisciplinary social science perspective on the analysis of management, in relation to three core themes: governance, innovation and entrepreneurship. Through this we provide an intensive and intellectually demanding approach to analysing the key issues facing modern organisations.

The core curriculum focuses on organisations within the context of the wider economy and society, providing an in-depth understanding of management practice, entrepreneurship and innovation. Students will gain knowledge around issues of operational and strategic significance, and their managerial consequences within modern organisations. The programme provides a sound understanding of approaches and tools for the management and the governance of organisations. Optional elective courses also offer students access to broad curriculum from a range of LSE departments - from philosophy to digital innovation.

The programme produces reflective, analytically sharp managers who will be in demand in a rapidly changing world. It is aimed at exceptional individuals aspiring to the highest levels of management seniority, in strategic or operational management in the corporate, governmental or not-for-profit sectors. The analytical approach, knowledge and skills developed during the programme make Management, Organisation and Governance graduates attractive to top employers.

The teaching format combines lectures, case studies, teamwork, data analysis and presentations. As part of the core learning students have the unique opportunity to develop their own real-world entrepreneurial business, applying theoretical knowledge to a practical challenge and gaining invaluable experience from initial idea generation through to business growth and future change.
