The Management - Organisational Behaviour programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science offers you the chance to undertake a substantial piece of work that is worthy of publication and which makes an original contribution to the field of organisational behaviour. You will begin on the MRes and will need to meet certain requirements to be upgraded to PhD status.


About the programme

The Management - Organisational Behaviour programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science is part of a rigorous and interdisciplinary graduate training programme. It is designed to stimulate critical thinking and creative ideas and provide you with the analytical skills to perform robust field studies, randomised experiments and quantitative study.

As a research-led department of management at the heart of LSE’s academic community in central London, we are ranked #2 in the world for business and management.

In order to develop a global understanding of people and organisations, the group study phenomena in a wide range of settings, examining both the organisations themselves (macro-OB) and the people within those organisations (micro-OB) through rigorous and innovative research. Members of the group represent a wide range of disciplinary perspectives (management, economics, psychology, and sociology), and draw on theories and research from these diverse perspectives to achieve academic excellence and publish in leading journals. The OB group collaborates with faculty from other disciplines in the Department of Management and the wider School through initiatives such as the Behavioural Research Lab. The group actively engages with practitioners, policymakers, and LSE students and alumni in their efforts to improve society by enhancing the quality of working life and changing organisational and economic practices.

You will work closely with international and world-class faculty as part of a vibrant community of doctoral students, all of whom are pursuing varied research in different fields of management. The programme also includes a comprehensive methodological training with the opportunity to specialise in a designated field.
