Footnotes

A : In Year 1 students choose between AC102 and AC103, on financial and management accounting respectively. Students MUST do ONE of these courses in Year 1; should they wish, they MAY choose to do the other in their second or third year as an option. All students are required to attend the first AC100 lecture to get an overview of the topics to be covered in each course. Students wishing to continue their studies with advanced financial accounting (AC330) in the second or third year should be advised to take AC102 in the first year. Students wishing to continue with advanced management accounting (e.g. AC211, AC310) in the second and third year should be advised to take AC103 in the first year. Should they wish to do both AC102 and AC103 in the course of their degree programme, it is recommended that they opt for the financial accounting unit (AC102) in the first year to ease their way through the management accounting and financial management unit (AC103).

B : EC102 course allocation dependent on Economics A-level or equivalent background. See course guides for further information.

C : If not already taken under Papers 8, 10 or 11.

# means there may be prerequisites for this course. Please view the course guide for more information.

International Exchange Year

Students successful in securing a place on the optional exchange will spend a full academic year studying on one of the leading business programmes in Asia, Europe or the USA. Students carrying any failed or deferred assessments for first or second year courses studied at LSE will not be eligible for the exchange. The exchange year will not count towards the classification of the BSc in Management programme and courses studied abroad will not be credit bearing, however the exchange year will be recognised on students’ LSE transcripts providing they meet the standards set by their host institution. Partner schools will issue a separate transcript to confirm marks and grades achieved on courses studied overseas. Students will not have the option to resit assessment they have failed or been unable to attempt while overseas. Following the exchange, students will return to LSE to complete the third year of the BSc in Management programme.

Note for prospective students:

For changes to undergraduate course and programme information for the next academic session, please see the undergraduate summary page for prospective students. Changes to course and programme information for future academic sessions can be found on the undergraduate summary page for future students.
