MSc International Management

Course Description

About the MSc programme

The MSc International Management is a one-year programme emphasising an analytical approach to issues of globalisation and international management, through a unique combination of theoretical and practical teaching styles and international learning.

During the first term the programme provides a highly analytical approach to management founded in the LSE’s tradition of critical thinking.

In the second term you will take part in the International Management Exchange programme (IMEX), studying as guest in the second year of an MBA programme at a leading business school in the US or China, with a more practical teaching approach.

These two terms allow you to benefit from the two different teaching approaches, which in combination provide a uniquely valuable and globally relevant learning experience.

The compulsory course in the programme focuses on an analytical approach to globalisation, giving you an understanding of industries, firms and nations at a global level.

The programme provides a firm foundation of critical thinking and analytically rigorous understanding of management at a global level, developing your talent to achieve lasting success over a lifelong career in a rapidly changing international market.

Compulsory courses

(* half unit)

Either Business in the Global Environment* looks at the process of globalisation at three levels: industries, firms and nations. Its goal is to develop a solid understanding of the external, economy-wide factors that affect the performance and management of firms in today's global economy. Topics include the changing structure of industries; the response of companies, both those based in the advanced industrial countries and those based in emerging markets, to increasing international competition; and differences between countries in their institutions and policies.
Or The World Trading System* studies a key component of the globalisation process: the negotiation, implementation and implications of international trade agreements (ITAs). These include the World Trade Organisation and the fast-growing web of regional trade agreements. We analyse the challenges and opportunities faced by companies engaged in the global economy in this context. The course relies on recent theoretical and empirical research to gain insight into the motivations for ITAs and their consequences for consumers and firms.
Term abroad - students will be expected to choose courses to the value of one unit at one of the IMEX partner schools during their term abroad.
Students will be expected to choose courses to the value of one and a half units from a range of options.

Please note that not every course is available each year and that some courses may only be available with the permission of the course convenor and/or may be subject to space.
