BSc Management Taster Day (Year 12)

This successful event is running for its third year and is open to 30 bright Year 12 pupils from London state schools and from backgrounds which means they don’t always consider university as the natural next step.

Management is a broad and rewarding degree programme which encompasses many disciplines, and we are hoping to offer places to students with an interest in Management, Economics, Finance, Accounting, Marketing and Human Resources.

The day includes:

  • An introduction to LSE and the Management Department
  • Specialist admissions advice tailored to those interested in applying to Management
  • Two interactive taster seminars where students can gain an insight into some of the topics they would study as a Management student
  • A guided tour of the LSE campus
  • The opportunity to network with current LSE Management undergraduate students and staff

This event is free of charge and lunch will be provided for all students attending the Taster Day.
