The London School of Economics and Political Science

London, United Kingdom

The Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is unique in its teaching and research of management through our concentration on the social, political and economic sciences by world-leading academics. Located in the heart of London, it draws talent from all backgrounds and over 100 countries to our community of staff, students, alumni, corporate and social partners. Committed to academic rigour and evidence-based education, its mission is to inform and inspire better management in practice by challenging and extending the understanding of people, teams, organisations and markets, and the economic, psychological, social, political and technological contexts in which they operate worldwide. Founded in 1895, LSE continues to use its convening power to bring together global leaders, innovators and social scientists for the betterment of society. It continues this tradition by engaging with people and organisations worldwide, across the private, public, and third sectors, who are motivated to improve the world through better understanding and practice of management.
