LSE Masters in Management ranked fourth in the world by Financial Times

LSE has maintained its ranking as fourth in the world for Masters in Management programmes in the Financial Times today (Monday 5 October).

The ranking, which surveys alumni three years after graduation, places LSE fourth out of 50 institutions for its MSc Management and Strategy programme, previously called the Masters in Management. LSE is the only UK institution in the top 10 and is placed third highest overall in alumni salaries. For the third year in a row the programme is ranked as the top single-institution one year MSc.

LSE is also one of the institutions contributing to the CEMS programme, which tops the league table. An alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies, the CEMS network includes 28 member schools from four continents and over 50 corporate partners who work together to define and teach the curriculum.

The Financial Times Masters in Management ranking is an evaluation of pre-experience Masters programmes offered by leading business schools. The survey was open to schools anywhere in the world that met the criteria set by the paper.

Professor Saul Estrin, head of the Department of Management at LSE, said: 'I am pleased that our degrees continue to be ranked so highly and it was nice to see us twice in the top five. With the expansion of our programmes recently this is very pleasing and further testifies to our high international standing.'

The Financial Times writes: 'If you want to work in London, then the LSE...would be among the obvious choices.'
