We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The MSc Accounting, Organisations and Institutions is a unique programme which gives you the opportunity to study the interface between accounting, organisations and institutions drawing on a variety of social science perspectives.
The core course will introduce you to fundamental issues at stake in the interrelationships between accounting, risk management, organisational performance, and institutional frameworks for accountability. The programme also addresses key design issues for accounting, risk and management control systems, and their operation and regulation in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors.
This programme is distinctive in its approach and different from a traditional accounting and finance master’s programme. Indeed, it does not require a background in

LSE is a brand that covers quality, challenge, and change. The thing that I liked most and felt most challenging about the LSE and the AOI programme was the constant practices to motivate and encourage students to adopt the culture of discussion as an inseparable part of their lives. The MSc Accounting Organisations and Institutions (AOI) programme at LSE, with its compulsory and wide range of elective courses, forces you to think wider, harder, deeper, and to be more productive.
I am continuing my career as an expert at the Capital Markets Board of Turkey, which is the regulatory authority in charge of Turkish capital markets. The AOI programme equipped me with a wider perspective on the regulation side in the sense that I am now able to better analyse and comment on the possible returns and side effects of a possible regulatory change with the help of my highly improved skills especially at accounting and law.
The AOI programme provides the opportunity to gain a deep knowledge of technical accounting and at the same time challenges the student to look beyond the pure technicalities of the subject. In addition, the programme offers the chance to combine the core accounting subjects with a wide range of other courses from non-accounting areas (e.g. finance, law, politics). Right after my master's I started a graduate scheme in financial management with General Electric (GE) Capital. The graduate scheme involves moving every 6 months to a different location, business and financial management related function. Hence, I am benefitting from the skills acquired and concepts learnt during my year at LSE.
My personal LSE experience also goes far beyond the pure academic knowledge. The most unique aspect of the LSE, were the people I shared my experience with. Never before had I met so many people from that many different countries with such exceptional backgrounds. It has been and will certainly remain one of the most memorable years of my life.
This programme provided a unique opportunity to enhance my competitive edge in the current global job market. The School has a distinguished reputation in social sciences and a cosmopolitan character. The AOI programme encourages students from diverse academic backgrounds to bring brand new perspectives to challenge the teaching and research of the School.
I really enjoyed the academic freedom at LSE. Students do not always need to agree with everything they are taught. In fact, the faculty expects students to take risks to challenge them. The AOI programme moves very fast. Some readings can be intimidating. The core paper is cross-disciplinary and taught from a social science perspective, students are invited to think outside the box in order to see a bigger picture.
