Course content

The MSc Public Management and Governance builds on LSE's international reputation in public policy. Public management and governance is an interdisciplinary field with roots in a number of academic disciplines. A major research and teaching focus in public management is on designing organisational practices, producing and using systematic analysis within the policy process, information and communication technologies, leadership, performance measurement, design of incentives, and public accountability. The issue of public governance has become increasingly important with perceived failings of professional self-regulation, the emergence of multi-level systems of political jurisdictions and administrations and the expanded role of the private sector in delivering publicly-financed services.

The programme is designed with employers in mind; you will find good employment opportunities in government and the public sector in your own country, in international agencies and professional services firms.
