Executive Global MSc Management

About the MSc programme

This highly challenging and rewarding Master’s in Management programme is designed for ambitious and talented working professionals to study part-time. The programme will provide an in-depth foundation in the core disciplines of management from a global perspective, providing a route to transition into a high-level management career.  

The programme will develop students’ talent to make better business decisions, based on a deeper understanding of the global geo-political and socio-economic context in which business operates. The core curriculum provides an optimum balance between rigorous academic analysis and real-world practice. We offer more academic depth than a traditional MBA, but more real-world application and teamwork than a PhD. The core courses cover the key disciplines of management (management, leadership, strategy, organisations & innovation, financial management, marketing, and foreign direct investment), and how each of these topics inter-relate and affect one another in a global context. Students can also customise the programme according to their own interests with a dissertation or capstone project on a topic of their choice, ideally related to a business issue in their current employment, or a planned entrepreneurial venture.

Each year the class is formed of a carefully selected group of students from a diverse range of employment backgrounds, industries, and international locations. Our students benefit from the network of close connections with talented professionals from around the world, as well as the wider global community of LSE alumni.

In contrast to a more traditional business school programme (such as an MBA) which simply teach current business frameworks, the EGMiM is founded in greater academic depth and more rigorous critical thinking, which trains our students to outperform their peers and become innovative business leaders.

The programme will provide the knowledge and personal contacts to enable our students to transition into a top-level senior management career on an international level (changing to a more senior job role with their current employer, changing company/industry, or managing their own business).

Programme details

Key features of the programme include:

  • An in-depth training in the key disciplines of management, allowing a transition into a senior management career.
  • Modular programme structure, with seven intensive classroom teaching modules (one-two weeks in length) over the 17-month duration of the programme. Five modules take place at LSE, and two in overseas locations. In between modules, students remain living and working in their home location anywhere across the world.
  • Instant return on investment – learning is applied to students’ current jobs from the beginning of the programme whilst the dissertation focuses on a specific challenge with students’ employer or start-up business.
  • Academic high standards that are grounded in critical thinking. Our bespoke modular courses are designed to teach students how to think critically about business and society, linking together theory and practice across all disciplines to give a holistic understanding of world-leading management practice.
  • Students are assessed through a variety of methods, with an emphasis on integrated assignments which help students to understand how all disciplines fit together in real-world scenarios.
  • Instant access to a diverse student cohort, a global network of alumni, world leading faculty and high profile guest speakers.
