About this Global Executive Master's programme

The Executive Global Master’s in Management is LSE’s cutting-edge alternative to an MBA. Combining intelligent critical thinking with real-world practice, this programme takes a fresh approach to the traditional MBA curriculum to keep pace with today's fast-changing world.

We provide experienced working professionals in any industry with a unique combination of intellectual skills, networks and practical abilities to achieve outstanding career success in management and leadership.

This unique executive Master's programme covers the same essential curriculum as a traditional MBA, but takes a fresh approach to these topics. We take a broader view of the real business world, based on our excellence as the #3 ranked institution in the world for social science and management. We give you an understanding of the socio-economic and geo-political forces impacting businesses worldwide, and the intellectual tools to succeed with complex challenges in the rapidly changing global environment.

Teaching is conducted in a series of short, intensive classroom teaching modules. In between modules you can continue to live and work full-time in any location worldwide, meaning you don't need to take a career break or relocate in order to join the programme.

The modules are taught in London as well as a field trip giving you an exposure to contrasting regional business cultures in key global locations. You will learn alongside classmates from a diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds, enriching the cross-cultural learning experience. You will graduate equipped to succeed in business on a global scale.
