Curriculum details

Pre-sessional course

Students are required to undertake a pre-sessional course in September, before year 1 of the programme officially begins later that month.

Compulsory core courses

Year 1: general foundations of management
  • MG431 Managerial Economics (0.5 unit) provides an introduction to the central issues in managerial economics. The course will analyse the foundations for applying economic thinking to management.
  • MG434 Organisational Behaviour (0.5 unit) seeks to understand individual attitudes and behaviour in an organisational context. It does this by reviewing psychological theories as they apply to organisations, demonstrating the contribution of a psychological perspective to understanding human behaviour at work, and critically evaluating the empirical evidence.
  • MG458 Foundations of Management I (0.5 unit) and MG459 Foundations of Management II (0.5 unit) will give a basic grounding in the key management disciplines which will be taught chronologically.

Year 2: advanced management and specialisation
  • MG430 Strategy, Organisation and Innovation (0.5 unit) explores advanced topics in strategy, organization and innovation. True to LSE, we will adopt an interdisciplinary social sciences point of view that embraces economics, sociology, political science and psychology.

  • MG488B MiM Capstone Course (including Business Project) (0.5 unit) builds connections between management theory and practice and to equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in their managerial careers.
