Course content

This ground-breaking programme, taught jointly by the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion, brings together the important areas of politics and management with an interdisciplinary lens. It enables you to develop a sophisticated understanding of social, political, organisational and managerial processes and of the connections between them.

The programme is based around three core modules; The Rise of Management Ideas and Concepts, Analysing Management in Practice and the Dissertation, to which you add further modules from the departmental catalogue of modules some examples of which are shown under Course Structure (please note, these are subject to change).

It provides an ideal foundation for careers in all kinds of cross-national organisations, from multinational companies to NGOs or international bodies such as the European Union or United Nations.

Course Structure

You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.


The Politics, Philosophy and Management programme is an excellent launch-pad for a wide range of careers, and gives you a set of skills and knowledge that will be highly valued by public and private sector employers.

It is an ideal foundation for those who are looking to work in organisations that span national boundaries – whether that be in global companies, in NGOs or in other transnational organisations such as the United Nations or the European Union.

Some who join the programme will already have firm career objectives, but others may want to use their year at Lancaster to explore their options and decide where they would like to go next. Whatever your goals, expert advisers in the Careers team at LUMS are on hand to help you formulate your career plans, make informed decisions and find the best route to achieve your ambitions.
