LSE offers new executive courses this summer

LSE_Old_Building-largeShort courses targeted at global executives who are dealing with emerging new challenges in business are being offered by the London School of Economics and Political Science this summer.

The LSE’s Executive Summer School new programmes will appeal to CEOs and global executives working in the following areas:

The four new courses are among 16 week-long programmes offered by the Executive Summer School over two weeks, from 23 June to 4 July.

Academic Director of the Executive Programmes, Professor Danny Quah, said: “These new courses will face up to immediate challenges confronting today’s executives, while at the same time providing in-depth, enduring and rigorous knowledge on those areas that continue to shape the modern business environment.”

This is the sixth year that LSE has offered the Executive Summer School, enrolling more than 1000 fast-track and senior global executives since 2009.

Summer School Director, Elizabeth Aitken, said: “The quality of the learning experience is crucial at LSE. Class sizes are kept small and participants are offered the best of LSE’s world-class facilities. Our aim is to deliver a unique experience which sets us apart from a typical business school.”
