About the MSc programme

The Executive Global Master’s in Management is LSE’s cutting-edge alternative to an MBA. Combining intelligent critical thinking with real-world practice, this programme takes a fresh approach to the traditional MBA curriculum to keep pace with today's fast-changing world.

We provide experienced working professionals in any industry with a unique combination of intellectual skills, networks and practical abilities to achieve outstanding career success in management and leadership.

Currently the only programme of its kind in the world, EGMiM covers the same essential curriculum as a traditional MBA - the essential pillars of business, including general management, accounting, finance, marketing and organisational behaviour - but takes a fresh approach to these topics.

In contrast to traditional practice-based learning utilised by many MBAs, the EGMiM programme offers a more intellectual learning experience, using theory and deep critical thinking to inform solutions in practical projects and case studies.

The unique intellectual skills gained from the EGMiM learning approach will empower students to become adaptable and innovative in the ever-changing global environment, setting themselves apart to move faster and further in the business world in top-level senior management and leadership careers.

Graduate destinations

The programme is designed as a gateway for outstanding working professionals from any industry/background to transition into a top-level senior management and leadership career. Whatever your career goals and aspirations are, the programme will provide a foundation to change job role with your current employer, transition to a new company/industry, or develop your own business.

The global focus of the programme provides the knowledge and experience to prepare students to work outside of their home country, reach international markets with their business, or work in an international-facing role for a multinational company.

Our graduates are equipped with lasting knowledge and experience to outperform their peers from more traditional business school programmes (such as MBAs) in the competitive business environment, with a deeper understanding of global business enabling them to make better-informed business decisions, predict and thrive with future trends, and innovate in the fast-changing global environment.

◾ interaction with senior-level practitioners responsible for the development and implementation of major policy initiatives
◾ a comparative, international and multidisciplinary environment with links to several specialist institutions partnered with the Institute of Public Affairs
◾ an interactive format that builds on the insights of an experienced, skilled and internationally diverse cohort

The choice of two week-long courses from a range of options allows flexibility to customise your curriculum. You may wish to develop new skills, pursue personal and professional interests, or add depth to existing knowledge. You will leave LSE with high-level knowledge and advanced skills which will empower you to master new challenges with your current organisation and expand your choice of career options.

The EMPA shares some classes with the Civil Service and LSE Executive Master of Public Policy (EMPP), a sponsored degree programme for senior levels of the UK Civil Service. This allows EMPA students to benefit from the experience and insight of senior government decision-makers and for EMPP students to benefit from the diversity of experience in the EMPA cohort. The EMPA/EMPP peer network will provide support and inspiration throughout your professional career.

Applicants will be considered who have a good first degree from any subject background and substantial relevant work experience. We typically expect at least five years of work experience.

This programme requires either two academic references or one academic and one professional reference. The latter should be a reference from your most recent employer. If you graduated from your most recent academic study before 2010 (or before 2011 for applicants for 2016 intake) and no academic references are available, you may supply two professional references. It is in your interest to supply academic references wherever possible. In addition to this, we encourage you to supplement your application by uploading a CV.
