Course content

The Executive MSc Social Business and Entrepreneurship is LSE’s ground-breaking programme for business leaders and entrepreneurs across the private, public and non-profit sectors.
Making a profit doesn’t have to mean compromising social purpose.
Our ground-breaking Executive Master’s in Social Business and Entrepreneurship goes beyond traditional business degrees by putting social purpose at the heart of business education, integrating sophisticated management training with a genuine commitment to social impact.
Conceived as an antidote to the MBA, the programme is aimed at students who wish to combine entrepreneurialism and business rigour with a commitment to public benefit, and conversely those who want to bring a social focus to business.
Through a cutting-edge curriculum guided by expert LSE faculty and leading practitioners across the philanthropy, public, and not-for-profit sectors, you will gain the knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial vision to develop your career in social business.
Studying alongside an outstanding class of like-minded peers from across the world, you will graduate with the knowledge, skills and networks to take the next step in your career in social business.
This programme is offered jointly by LSE Marshall Institute and LSE Department of Management.
