Virtual delivery of June 2020 courses

LSE Executive Education Courses will give you an insight into leading edge thinking in each discipline and invite you to reflect on the big issues of the day.

Online classroom

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to deliver our portfolio of Executive Education courses in June 2020 virtually.

While we're disappointed not to offer an on-campus experience for our participants, we are excited about the opportunity to deliver our courses to participants safely all over the world. Our courses will still maintain the same outstanding content that our participants would normally experience but delivered in a new format of real-time, interactive online learning. As with our on-campus courses, you will also be awarded an LSE certificate of completion at the end of your course.

The virtual learning experience will be delivered with our long-standing online partners 2U, who have a proven track record in delivering world-class online learning in partnership with some of the world’s top universities and who currently deliver our online course portfolio.

We have a dedicated FAQ page to answer any questions you might have about our virtual delivery, as well as more detailed information about our new offering below.

Course content

Our virtual courses will retain the same content as they would were they delivered on campus, however the length and structure will be adapted.

The courses still provide access to first class faculty, outstanding LSE learning content and networking opportunities with other participants from around the world via an advanced virtual learning platform in the comfort of your own home.

Specific teaching content will be adapted to reflect the current global situation and equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to adapt in this new business environment.

Course structure

Rather than an intensive five-day course, the virtual courses will be delivered over four weeks and you will be able to manage them alongside your working hours.

Week one will be a course orientation where participants can access your pre-course readings and meet fellow classmates, as well as a live welcome session hosted by our world-leading faculty.

Following that, your course will be taught over the course of three weeks with 10 contact hours each week, matching the level of contact time you would get on an on-campus course.Teaching will typically occur Monday to Friday during regular UK university hours. During this time, you'll have dedicated slots to meet your fellow participants, a virtual event per programme, full technical support by phone, email or live-chat and a 'virtual graduation' ceremony to end the course.

Here's an example timetable of what your course will look like. 

Class size

To ensure that you have access to our faculty and benefit from high levels of networking with participants, we are limiting our programmes to 25 participants.

Application process

If you would like to apply to one of our virtual courses, the application process is the same as it is for all of our open courses. Visit our application page for more details.
