From education to employment

LSE Management named top ten in world, and #1 in thought leadership

The London School of Economics has been ranked seventh in the world in the QS Master’s in Management Rankings 2018 released today (Tuesday 28 November), placing it in the top three UK business education institutions.

This new ranking represents a thorough, multivariate ranking of business programmes- a shift from previous rankings that have been principally based on employer opinion. Institutions in these rankings were measured in five separate areas, including thought leadership, which LSE were ranked #1 in the world for.

Head of Department of Management Professor Naufel Vilcassim attributes the success of LSE’s numerous management programmes to LSE’s ability to integrate core management subjects similar to world-leading business schools, within LSE’s outstanding and academically rigorous social science tradition.

Professor Vilcassim says,

“This is the foundation for our strength in producing outstanding research which impacts on policy and industry across the globe. We are dedicated to educating the brightest and most innovative graduates who have the talent to drive positive change in society, I’m confident we will see even further advances in years to come”.

LSE received an overall score of 97.2/100, against a global average of 43.3 and performed well above the global and regional averages in the Diversity indicator for Management ranking second for diversity.
