Top reasons to study here

  • Our vision is to create a better world where a profound understanding of management drives positive change in business and society.
  • Our mission is to inform and inspire better management in practice by challenging and extending the understanding of people, teams, organisations, and markets.

In 2007 the Department of Management was established at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), bringing together four previously separate academic units (the Interdisciplinary Institute of Management, the Department of Industrial Relations, the Department of Information Systems and the Department of Operational Research) into one new integrated department. 


The Department of Management is a world-leading centre for education in business and management, with teaching drawn from the latest insights in our field. We offer an innovative portfolio of programmes in business and management to transform your career.


The Department of Management’s faculty produce outstanding scholarly research about organisations and management and use interdisciplinary research methods and knowledge to address problems in business, government, and society.


We are giving our teaching programmes a real-world context in the social, economic and political environment in which organisations operate across the globe. Our students will graduate with a unique understanding of business, enabling them to face future challenges in the fast-moving global environment, and set them apart in the workplace as innovative, agile and strategic leaders.

Our alumni enjoy successful careers in a range of sectors across the world, including consulting, business, finance and marketing, as well as public sector, governments and NGOs. Some also use the academic knowledge and professional contacts from their Masters programme to launch successful start-up companies.
