About the Executive MSc

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.

The programme is designed for full-time working professionals, so you don’t need to take a break from their career in order to study. Teaching is delivered in a flexible modular format, conducted in four short intensive classroom modules taught at LSE campus in London, each module 1-2 weeks in duration. Students will require a maximum of six weeks out of the office to attend the teaching modules over the 12-month programme duration.

The Executive MSc offers a compelling alternative to an MBA for executives who not only wish to lead successful organisations, but are also committed to tackling the world’s most pressing social challenges. The programme provides core business skills complemented by a global view of the social, political and economic context for business, as well as training in the practical delivery and evaluation of effective solutions to social problems

We integrate social purpose and social impact with the highest level of business and management training; so whether you wish to launch your own socially-focused entrepreneurial venture, or to deliver social impact alongside profit in an established company, we will give you the knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial mindset you need to become more effective and reflective in creating social impact.

Guided by expert LSE faculty and leading practitioners in the field, you will explore the political and economic context for socially-focused business models, and gain an understanding of social impact evaluation and intervention design, including the latest insights from behavioural economics. You will also develop core management and leadership skills, including marketing, strategy, entrepreneurship, and social finance.

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 the LSE Marshall Institute and the LSE Department of Management. The Marshall Institute informs and coordinates the efforts of citizens, researchers, private sector organisations, and social entrepreneurs who are working to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. The Institute equips the foremost figures in the field, and the leaders of the future, with the knowledge they need to put philanthropic funding and social endeavour to best use. The Department of Management ranks #2 in the world for social sciences and management (QS World University Rankings 2018) and currently, ranks #1 in the world for thought leadership in management (QS Master's in Management Rankings 2018). The Department engages 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.

We are launching this new programme for the first intake of students in September 2018.
