This MSc is designed to provide students who have limited or no work experience with a comprehensive and solid grounding in organisational behaviour and its applications to management. The programme complements the other specialist MSc degrees within the EROB group and the broader portfolio of degrees offered in the Department of Management.
The programme can be taken as a free-standing one year degree, or serve as the entry year to the Group's doctoral programme. If you intend to follow the latter route then you should state this clearly in your application, together with a brief indication of your likely field of doctoral research. If you complete the MSc with a Merit or Distinction and select a research topic which we feel able to supervise you may proceed directly to MPhil registration.
The programme consists of four compulsory half unit courses and an empirical based 10,000 word research dissertation. Courses offer discipline-based teaching in Organisational Change, Leadership, Organisational Theory, Cross Cultural Management and Managing Diversity in Organisations. Students will select two options from the list below or will choose two methodology courses if they intend to pursue the Group PhD upon completion of the programme.

Scholarships for study at LSE
LSE makes available over £12 million annually in financial support for its students via a range of scholarships, bursaries and award schemes, details of which can be found on these pages. LSE's world class programmes attract a consistently high calibre of applicants, many of whom seek financial support from the School, so there is always much competition for our awards. Securing the necessary funds to attend LSE can be a difficult and time consuming process so you should start to think about it as early as possible. Please be aware that the School will be unable to offer you any financial assistance if you knowingly register under funded.

The School would like to thank the many donors who have contributed to the New Futures Fund, which provides funds for a number of discretionary scholarships.

Graduate Support Scheme
LSE's major financial support scheme for study at taught masters level is the Graduate Support Scheme (GSS). This scheme is open to all applicants, with the exception of those undertaking specific modular or executive programmes such as the MSc in Finance (Part time) or the MSc in Health Economics, Policy and Management. Around £2 million is available annually in the form of awards from the Graduate Support Scheme. The Scheme is designed to help students who do not have sufficient funds to meet all their costs of study. GSS awards range in value from £3,000 to a maximum of £10,000, and have an average value of £6,000. Application to the Graduate Support Scheme is via the LSE Graduate Financial Support Application form. This form will be made available to you once you have submitted an application for admission to the School. The form will then be available until 27 April 2011.
If you complete the LSE Graduate Financial Support Application form, and are made an offer of admission by 27 April 2011, you will also be automatically considered for any other awards being offered by LSE, for which you are eligible, with the exception of Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funding where there are separate, department led processes in place. AHRC and ESRC funding is relevant to Home UK and Home EU applicants only, and there are also subject restrictions in place. We offer a range of awards based on different criteria such as a specific programme of study, nationality, or country of permanent domicile. In addition, a number of external organisations offer funding to support postgraduate study. We recommend that applicants follow up as many avenues as possible to find funding. Please be aware that if you accept funding from an external source, it is your responsibility to check the terms of the award. Some awards are accompanied by specific terms and conditions which you should be sure you able to meet before accepting the award.
