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 among UK business education institutions.

This new ranking represents a thorough, multivariate ranking on business programmes- a shift from previous rankings that have been principally based on employer opinion. Institutions in these rankings were measured on employability, thought leadership, alumni outcomes, diversity, and value for money.

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

“We are dedicated to educating the brightest and most innovative graduates who have the talent to drive positive change in society,” writes Professor Vilcassim.

“This is the foundation for our strength in producing outstanding research which impacts on policy and industry across the globe and I’m confident we will see even further advances in years to come.”

This supportive environment for cutting-edge research was reflected in the QS Master’s in Management rankings with LSE coming in first for thought leadership in management among institutions worldwide. LSE received a score of 97.2/100 against a global average of 43.3.

LSE also performed well above the global and regional averages in the Diversity indicator for Management ranking second for diversity.
