BSc Management students acquire the skills needed to be effective managers. They learn how to understand organisations and management practice through the rigorous lenses of economics, psychology and sociology.
The curriculum focuses on critical thinking and problem solving, using logic and analysis. Students are encouraged to consider theory and evidence: "What data might support this claim?", “How can we evaluate whether the data do support this claim?”, "What are the unstated assumptions behind this statement?" This disciplinary training is complemented by a series of courses focusing on the key functions of the modern organisation, so that graduating students have good business sense alongside strong theoretical understanding.
The programme also develops practical management competence, including the ability to work in teams, to write clearly both for managerial and scientific purposes, to conduct robust and valid quantitative analysis and present the results, and to give oral presentations. These skills are developed throughout the degree programme starting from the first year. Moreover, through LSE100 and the compulsory course in organisational strategy, as well as through many public events organised by the Department and the School, the programme presents an unrivalled opportunity to develop strategic awareness and breadth of perspective.
