Why are some countries rich and others poor?  Why are some governed well and others badly?  Why are some cohesive and others conflicted?  Gain a deeper understanding of these issues on our new course, Managing Inclusive Development in Emerging Societies. 

The course provides an interdisciplinary and critical approach to the theories and practices being used to address problems of governance, economic growth, equity and stability, and social inclusion in the Global South. You’ll also benefit from studying alongside practitioners from around the globe, enhancing your professional network. London is hub for international development and LSE is a world leader in this subject.

Upon completion the course your ability to design, monitor and evaluate policies, programmes and projects in societies at different levels of development will be significantly increased.

This executive course is suitable for:

  • Senior and fast track junior officials in public, for-profit and not-for-profit organisations involved in foreign policy-making, international aid and trade and investment in emerging societies and markets
  • Professionals from national governments in emerging societies and markets
  • Executives working in multinational companies which do business in developing countries.

Tuition Fee: £3,995

Includes all LSE tuition, course materials, daily lunches, and networking events. You will also be awarded an LSE certificate of completion at the end of the five days.

Course outcomes

The course will enable participants to:

  • Familiarise themselves with the challenges, solutions, and possible synergies with programmes in other sectors and countries.
  • Increase their ability to evaluate their existing programmes and develop a ‘menu of options’ rather than rigid templates, which will enable them to adapt their interventions to suit prevailing conditions in different contexts.
  • Enhance their network with a diverse range of professionals from around the world.
