Prior formal study of quantitative subjects is not required, but students must come prepared to engage with quantitative topics such as statistics, accounting and finance.
Work experience (anything from 3 months to more than 5 years) is an advantage and should be explained in your personal statement and resume.
Graduates of all non-UK institutions must submit a GRE or GMAT score. The average GMAT score of students on the programme is 680. Students with a score below 600 are very unlikely to be offered a place on the programme.
English language requirements. Unfortunately, we do not provide any language waivers.
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 at LSE and possession of the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee that you will be offered admission. It is therefore in your interests to apply as early as possible.
How to Apply
Submit an application to the LSE Graduate Admissions Office:
Applications are open from 14 October 2013. 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 for queries about the application process and requirements.
